Problem with changing font color after certain time


Recommended Posts

Hi people ;)


I'm trying to show all my data in my database, and I'm trying to make the font color change after 7 days to yellow and after 14 days it should show up red. But it does not work, could someone see any error in the code?


It turns up green all the time..



 while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {

    $postTime = $row['date'];
    $thisTime = time();
    $timeDiff = $thisTime-$postTime;

    if($timeDiff <= 604800) { // Less than 7 days[60*60*24*7]
      $color = '#D1180A';
    } else if($timeDiff > 604800 && $timeDiff <= 1209600) { // Greater than 7 days[60*60*24*7], less than 14 days[60*60*24*14]
      $color = '#D1B30A';
    } else if($timeDiff > 1209600) { // Greater than 14 days[60*60*24*14]
      $color = '#08C90F';

    echo '<tr style="color: '.$color.';">';

    echo '<td>'. $row['id'] .'</td>';

    echo '<td>'. date("d.m.y", strtotime($row["date"])) .'	</td>';

    echo '<td><a href="detaljer.php?view='. $row['id'] .'">'. $row['Navn'] .'</a></td>';
    echo '<td>'. $row['Telefon'] .'</td>';

    echo '<td>'. $row['Emne'] .'</td>';

    echo '</tr>';


  echo '</table>';

This is the value of thoose variables


2011-01-01 16:02:42




... and there lies the problem. 2011-01-01 16:02:42 is a date/time while 1295019624 is a timestamp. you can't perform addition/subtraction on these 2 values without converting one type to the other. you can use strtotime() to convert a date/time to a timestamp.


But on the other hand, The Little Guy has a possibly simpler solution.
