PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

In the preview my code renders the correct sentence and date format but says I'm missing an echo command?

Can anyone show me what I am missing? Everything seems to render correctly on the preview?

index.php
<?php
$date = date('F d, Y');
echo "Today is $date";
//Place your code below this comment

?>

Apparently, the challenge expected you to concatenate the date function on the already wrote echo statement (disregarding the comment for 'place your code below'), like this :

<?php
echo 'Today is '. date('F d, Y');

?>
