PHP Build a Basic PHP Website (2018) Adding a Basic Form Utilizing Object Properties and Methods

Invalid Email Address Message with Valid Email->HELP

Here is the screenshot in workspace

I followed and rewrote this code twice and still I'm getting Invalid Email Address message with a valid email.

Alena Holligan can you view the code and explain what I missed from your video to cause the problem.

p.s I would appreciate help from anyone, so feel free to provide an answer if you can.

this line

if ($name == "" || $email = "" || $details == ""){

is setting $email equal to an empty string, so it is no longer a valid email. The line SHOULD be

if ($name == "" || $email == "" || $details == ""){

Thank you Alena Holligan ^_^
