I followed your link. Then I did a "show source". Your genereated HTML is filled with errors. If you generate correct HTML, your page will be correct. There are a lot of openning [nobbc]<tr>[/nobbc] tags with no closing [nobbc]</tr>[/nobbc] tags.

As for your date() question, the first argument to the date() function needs to be a string:
[code]<?php date('Y-m-d'); ?>[/code]
