PHP PHP Basics (Retired) PHP Data & Structure PHP Variables

This activity isn't working for me - even with correct code.

It seems there might be a bug in this challenge? The code I've put in should work fine.

$name = "Mike";

<?php echo $name ?>

1 Answer

If you put the echo in the same code block, it'll work. (And add a semi-colon)

  $name = "Mike";
  echo $name;


Thanks. It's odd that it didn't work with the way I originally entered it, but whatever works!

The tests behind the code challenges can be very specific and a bit overly-picky at times!!
