WordPress How to Build a WordPress Plugin Connecting WordPress Plugins with 3rd Party APIs Parsing JSON Code Challenge: Part 1

Needing clarification what is being asked

It isn't entirely clear to me what is being asked. Do I assume the JSON data has already been retrieved and parsed into the variable? I've a multitude of ways to do this and so far nothing has been correct.


//  {
//    "name":"Username",
//    "profile_name":"profile_username",
//    "profile_url":"http://myapi.net/profile_username"
//  }
echo $my_plugin_profile => 'name';

You are being asked to echo out "name" from the JSON data stored in the $my_plugin_profile variable. Try changing echo $my_plugin_profile => 'name'; to echo $my_plugin_profile->{'name'};

Ahhhh... Got it... thank you, I was struggling with it so much I was starting to think I had misinterpreted the task.
