PHP highlight whole variable with the $


so since some days I am back to coding php and I have the package: language-php installed.
And before it would highlight the whole ‘Variable' with the 'S' and now its without the '’ I am kinda used to it and I want it back ^^

I found some posts about removing it but I can’t get it wo work again with the ‘$’.

Anyone who can help me here?

Best regards
