PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

Solution not working? For PHP timestamps.

I have used the documentation to build the date format so that you know the full month, double digit date and four digit year. I have include an echo command but it still says that I need to include one?! Any ideas on what I need to do in order for the code to flow?

I have attached the variable to the initial echo at the top and have written a new echo statement out too all return the same output but they are not being accepted.

index.php
<?php
echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
$date = date("F d, Y");
echo $date;
?>

Since resolved the issue. Rather than declaring a variable the solution required a single echo statement that included the date function.
