Undefined Variable

So I'm currently working through the Media Catalog site as I'm new to PHP.

I was pretty convinced I'd followed the video correctly until now I'm getting undefined variable errors and can't seem to work out why the variable works in some places and not others.


I'm sure it's a fair simple fix but can't for the life of me work out where.

Hey Tim!

Would you mind sharing the actual source code you produced that's being run here? That'll give us a better idea on where this error might be coming from.

The error shows there is an undefined variable on line 34 and provides a hint

$item //replace 'item' with '$item'
