You forgot to mention in the video, to add empty Variable in the index page...

Without setting a variable, the home page breaks down. Add a note about it

<$php $section = " "; ?>

At the current stage of the project not having the $section variable set on the index page won't break the page since you're not setting the conditional to the h1. However, you'd probably want to set the $section variable to "home" like the project files show. I can't remember, but it seems like that was important in later steps.

Edit: actually even if you did set the conditional to the h1, it still wouldn't break the page at the current stage of the project.
