PHP task query
Hi, so here is my task.
- Use the $fullname variable to display the following string to the screen. Use an escape character to add a newline to the end of the string. 'Rasmus Lerdorf was the original creator of PHP'.
And here is my answer:
$firstName = 'Rasmus'; $lastName = 'Lerdorf'; $fullname = $firstName . " " . $lastName ; $fullname .= " was the original creator of PHP" ; ?>
My problem is that it says task number 2 is no longer passing. But the instruction is to use the $fullname variable.
If someone can help me in this regard, that would be great.
Thanks in advance,
Kind regards, Reg.
<?php //Place your code below this comment $firstName = 'Rasmus'; $lastName = 'Lerdorf'; $fullname = $firstName . " " . $lastName ; $fullname .= " was the original creator of PHP" ; ?>
It only wants you to "use" the variable to display the string, but not modify it. By modifying it, $fullname no longer passes the previous challenge, which is what your issue is. Instead, just display your concatenation without actually reassigning the variable and you should be good :)
