Stuck on part 2

I cannot figure out what's wrong here. Help!

plugin.php
<?php


    $options = array();

    function my_plugin_options_page() {
        if( !current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) ) {
            wp_die( 'You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.' );
        }

        global $options;

           if( isset( $_POST['my_plugin_hidden_field'] ) ) {
            $my_plugin_username = esc_html( $_POST['my_plugin_username'] );         
            $options['my_plugin_username'] = $my_plugin_username;
            $options['last_updated'] = time();
            update_option( 'my_plugin_options', $options );
        }


        require('includes/page-wrapper.php');

   $options = get_option('my_plugin_options'); 

    if( $options !empty '' ){ 
      $my_plugin_username = $options['my_plugin_username']; 
    }       

  }
?>

Hi Lisa,

First of all, make sure that your new code is above the require statement as asked for in the instructions. It will not work underneath it.

Secondly, in your if conditional statement, use != instead of !empty and your code should work.
