PHP PHP Arrays and Control Structures PHP Arrays Multidimensional Arrays

PHP Arrays and Control Structures Multidimensional Arrays - Challenge

Hello everyone, I am seeking assistance with the challenge. After reviewing everyone else submissions for assistance with this challenge I still cannot figure out why it is not passing. I have reviewed syntax, spelling and all the other things that I could think of to fix the problem but I am missing something. Any help would be appreciated. Please note that I passed all the tasks up to task 3. Task 3 "Replace the hard code..." Basically changing the echo so that it outputs the "Alena Holligan : aleana.holligan@teamtreehouse.com"

BTW - I LOVE HER! She is really great at teaching and I hope she is on more languages.

<?php
//edit this array
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Alena Holligan',
  'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com',
];

 $contacts[] = [ 
   'name' => 'Dave McFarland',
     'email' => 'dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com',     
 ];

 $contacts[] = [ 
   'name' => 'Treasure Porth',
    'email' => 'treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com',         
 ];

 $contacts[] = [ 
   'name' => 'Andrew Chalkley',
   'email' => 'andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com',
 ];

echo "<ul>\n";
//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
echo "<li>" . $contacts[0]['name'] . ' : ' . $contacts[0]['email'] "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[1]['name'] . ' : ' . $contacts[1]['email'] "</li>\n";

Hi T!

This passes all three:

<?php
//edit this array
$contacts = [
  [
    'name' => 'Alena Holligan',
    'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com',
  ],
  [ 
    'name' => 'Dave McFarland',
    'email' => 'dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com',     
  ],
  [ 
   'name' => 'Treasure Porth',
   'email' => 'treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com',         
  ],
  [ 
   'name' => 'Andrew Chalkley',
   'email' => 'andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com',
  ]
];

echo "<ul>\n";
//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
echo "<li>" . $contacts[0]['name'] . ' : ' . $contacts[0]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[1]['name'] . ' : ' . $contacts[1]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[2]['name'] . ' : ' . $contacts[2]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[3]['name'] . ' : ' . $contacts[3]['email'] . "</li>\n";

echo "</ul>\n";

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
