Hello,

[code]//This will find current week
\$today = date("YmdHis");
\$week_array = array(20060819230300, 20060819231400, 20060924100000);
if (\$today<\$week_array[0])
{\$week = "1";}
elseif (\$today<\$week_array[1])
{\$week = "2";}
elseif (\$today<\$week_array[2])
{\$week = "3";}
else {\$week= "0";}[/code]

What is it supposed to do?

Quite!

You would expect an array of dates each 7 days apart, but that has 2 dates same (19th) then the 24th ??? ??? ???

Here's a couple of options

[code]<?php
// METHOD 1 - assumes weeks start on a Monday
//
//  if first day of month is in week 31 of the year
//  and today is in 33rd week
//  then we're in 3rd week of the month
//
//
\$weekfirst = date('W', mktime(0,0,0,date('m'),1,date('Y')));
\$week = date('W')-\$weekfirst+1;

// METHOD 2 - assumes weeks start on first day of current month
//
//  days 1-7 of month in first week
//  8 - 14 in 2nd week
//  15 - 21  in 3rd week
//  22 - 28 in 4th week
//
\$week = 1 + floor((date('j') - 1)/7);
?>[/code]

This will have about 19 dates in it. These dates are for the start date and time of each week of the NFL season, each week the first game time could be different, hence why i can't use the week function of date() Thanks! Any suggestions?

This is what i figured out...does anyone see any problem with this code? THANKS
[code]//This will find current week
\$today = date("YmdHis");
\$week_array = array(1 => 20060907173000, 20060917100000, 20060924100000, 20061001100000, 20061008100000, 20061015100000, 20061022100000, 20061029100000, 20061105100000, 20061112100000, 20061119100000, 20061123093000, 20061130170000, 20061207170000, 20061214170000, 20061221170000, 20061230170000);
\$week_array_count = count(\$week_array);
\$i = 1;
while((\$i <= \$week_array_count) && (!\$week)){
if(\$today<\$week_array[\$i]){
\$week="\$i";

};
\$i++;
}[/code]
