WordPress How to Build a WordPress Plugin Connecting WordPress Plugins with 3rd Party APIs Getting and Storing JSON Code Challenge

Question regarding task 4 out of 5.

Please let me know if I am doing something wrong. It is asking me to use wp_remote_get to get the json_feed_url and assign it to a variable named json_feed. This sounds simple enough, so I am assuming I am making a simple error.

function my_plugin_get_profile($my_plugin_username){
  $json_feed_url = 'http://myapi.net/' . $my_plugin_username . '.json';
  $args = array('timeout' => 120);
  $json_feed = $wp_remote_get( $json_feed_url, $args ); 

Hopefully I used Markdown properly, if not please see the php code and let me know if the $json_feed variable is correct. Thanks.

Drop the $ from the front of your function call.
