Self-Destructing Code Challenge Stage 2 HELP!

Challenge task 3 of 4 in Logging In and Logging Out:

The challenge asks to "add a call to the PFUser class method 'logInWithUsernameInBackground:password:block:'. Use "test" as both the username and password parameters. Then pass in 'loginHandler' as the third parameter."

This is what I wrote:

[PFUser loginWithUsernameInBackground:test password:test block:^(loginHandler)];

I tried to pass the block in so many ways, but I think i'm still missing something... any help would be appreciated!

When passing in blocks as variables, you do not need the ^( ... ), just use block:loginHandler.

Also, it is asking you to use NSStrings @"test" for both username and password. The variable test is not defined anywhere.

Check your syntax, loginWithUsernameInBackground: login needs a capital I.

[PFUser logInWithUsernameInBackground:@"test" password:@"test" block:loginHandler];

Still not working... I tried as you suggested.

[PFUser loginWithUsernameInBackground:@"test" password:@"test" block:loginHandler];
[PFUser loginWithUsernameInBackground:(NSString *)@"test" password:(NSString *)@"test" block:loginHandler];

You only need the 1st line.
