Hi all

 

I have a PHP script with the following var

 

print $date;

 

at the moment it is formatting the date like

 

03-24-2010

 

is it possible to get PHP to switch the date and month, so it looks like

 

24-03-2010

 

Thanks

You swap the month with days like so

list($month, $day, $year) = explode('-', $date);
$new_date = "$day-$month-$year";

print $new_date;

 

Alternatively your can format the date to 24th March 2010 using this

$new_date = date('jS F Y', strtotime($date));
print $new_date;
