Hi Kumbirai Ruth Huni,

Everything is great you just don't need those extra whitespace around string parameters inside date function.

<?php
echo date("F d, Y");
?>

thank you

Same issue:

<?php
echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date('F m, Y');
?>

The code challenge doesn't accept the format. The issue comes back, not passing the correct string format.

This course is starting to bum me out with the code challenges.

Hi Travis, I think you should change the '' around 'F m, Y' to "F m, Y"
