Make sure you echo out the "name" property.

Please have a look at code, I changed it several times and I am getting this error, also I had copied code from video but did not work, please let me know the correct line, this video code gives a lot of errors.

plugin.php
<?php

//  {
//    "name":"Username",
//    "profile_name":"profile_username",
//    "profile_url":"http://myapi.net/profile_username"
//  }

 $wptreehouse_profile = json_decode($my_plugin_profile->{'body'}, true);

echo $wptreehouse_profile->{'name'};


?>

As Treehouse passes in the profile data I think you only need the following line of code

echo $my_plugin_profile->{'name'};

For methe Paul Adams's answer works. echo $my_plugin_profile->{'name'};
