Problem with Building a Wordpress Plugin Settings Page, Challenge Task 2 of 3.

Hi there everyone,

I'm having trouble with the code challenge task 2 of 3 on the Building a Wordpress Plugin Settings page.

Here's the code that i'm trying to submit:


if( isset( $_POST['my_plugin_hidden_field'])) {

        $hidden_field = esc_html( $_POST['my_plugin_hidden_field'] );

        if ($hidden_field == 'Y') {
            $my_plugin_username = esc_html( $_POST['my_plugin_username'] );


But no matter what i try it keeps saying "Bummer! You should pass the posted form element my_plugin_username into esc_html in order to sanitize it."

Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?
