PHP PHP Arrays and Control Structures PHP Conditionals Switch Statements

Question doesn't make sense on this challenge.

In the code provided, there are two if statements. The second if statement displays a message IF the user role is not equal to "admin". We want to display separate messages based on the role of the logged in user. First we're going to add a message for our admin and keep the current message as the default.

Step 1: Change the second if statement to a switch statement

Step 2: Keep the current message as the default.

Step 3: Add a second check to the switch statement for the role of "admin" and display the following message:

As an admin, you can add, edit, or delete any post.

switch.php
<?php
//Available roles: admin, editor, author, subscriber
if (!isset($role)) {
    $role = 'subscriber';
}

//change to switch statement
switch ($role != 'admin') {
  default :
    echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact your administrator.";
    break;
  case "admin" :
    echo "As an admin, you can add, edit, or delete any post.";
    break;
}

Solved it, the instructions were a bit confusing.

<?php //Available roles: admin, editor, author, subscriber if (!isset($role)) { $role = 'subscriber'; }

//change to switch statement switch ($role) { case "admin": echo "As an admin, you can add, edit, or delete any post."; break; default: echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact your administrator."; }
