Recommended Posts

I pulled a date from mysql and this is what i get "1072806465"

what kind of formatting is that?  and how to i make it like 3-January 2003  or whatever the actual date is?

probably unix time.. it's the amount of seconds between now and Jan-1980.

You could try formating the time of your choice using mktime()

You can also use the [url=http://www.php.net/date]date()[/url] function.
[code]<?php
$date = "1072806465";
echo date('j-F Y',$date);
?>[/code]

just to correct on this point, a timestamp like this is the number of seconds passed since 12:00:00am, 1st Jan 1970.

A lttle help for you.

[code]

<?php

// Time is already a time stamp so echoing time you get the timestamp information.

$today=time();

echo "This is a timestamp from time $today";

// This is a timestamp from time but in human readable format.

$result2=date("d-m-y",$today);

echo " <br> This is a readable timestamp from time $result2";

// This is a date in a timestamp but in the date example you goto use the strtotime
//to convert the date to a timestamp.

$date_now=date("d-m-y");

$result_date=strtotime($date_now);

echo "<br> This is a date converted to a timestamp $result_date";

// This is date coverted from the timestamp from the $date-now in human readable conversion.

$date=date("y-m-d",$result_date);

echo "<br> This is a readable date from the strtotime function $date";

// please look up the date function on php.net there are meny settimgs for dates.


?>

[/code]
