My date is returning in the correct format, but I can't pass this code quiz. Is there another way?

It seems to appear correctly.

echo 'Today is ' 
//Place your code below this comment
echo date('F d\, Y');

Hi there! Yes, this does appear correctly. However, the challenge seems to be checking the string that you send into the date function as opposed to the output. You've put a \ before the comma, but commas don't need to be escaped and it's resulting the challenge seeing a string it shouldn't.

Simply removing the backslash causes this to pass the challenge.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
