Hi Robert

Your PHP is correct - this is just a quirk of the question and how they wanted the answer to be. It asked for a "single date function". What you did was put it into a variable then call the variable.

echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date('F d, Y');

It will then echo out 'Today is July 17, 2018' as there is no line break between the 2 echos, so it will just continue. All you needed, therefore, was to echo the date.

Good luck!
