the [code=php:0]time()[/code] function returns
[quote]the current time measured in the number of seconds since the Unix Epoch (January 1 1970 00:00:00 GMT).[/quote]

so if you wanted to go 60 seconds from now
you'd say

[code]time() + 60;[/code]

lets' say you wanted to go and hour later
well, an hour is 60 minutes...and you know one minute is 60 seconds
so,
[code=php:0]time() + (60*60)[/code]

so in your case you're going

[code=php:0]time() + 60 //One minute
time() + (60*60) //One Hour
time() + (60*60*24) //One Day
time() + (60*60*24*5) //Five Days[/code]
hope that helps

yep :) thanks :)
