PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

insert a comma in the date function

Here is my code:

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

It doesn't work.

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

No need to enclose the comma in its own quotes

echo date("F d, Y");   //May 09, 2019

See Example #4 date() Formatting in the linked documentation

$today = date("F j, Y, g:i a");                 // March 10, 2001, 5:16 pm
$today = date("m.d.y");                         // 03.10.01
$today = date("j, n, Y");                       // 10, 3, 2001 

You don't need to enclose the comma in it's own quotes

I tried that earlier and received this response: Bummer: You must use the built-in date function

Then I just now previewed ignoring the error response and there is the comma.

Thanks guys!!
