Trying to read "Date" from Tumblr api


Recommended Posts

Hi PHP expert, I am trying to read the post date from my tumblr api with the following code.


$date = $xml->posts->post ['date'];


echo '<p>'.$date.'</p>';


This is what I get from the above code "Wed, 21 Nov 2012 13:32:00"


My question is, are there anyways I can get the date with out the hour, min and seconds? for example "Wed,21 Nov 2012"?

Thanks for the reply, with the above code will only show the local date. what I am trying to do is the pull the date from a Tumblr XML API as below.


<posts start="1" total="77">

<post id="38470857535" url="http://myblog.tumblr.com/post/38470857535" url-with-slug="http://myblogblog.tumblr.com/post/38470857535" type="photo"date-gmt="2012-12-21 16:38:51 GMT" date="Fri, 21 Dec 2012 11:38:51" unix-timestamp="1356107931" format="html" reblog-key="3ZWYJfgn" slug="" width="1064">



And I used the code below to call it:



$request_url = "http://myblog.tumblr.com/api/read?start=0&num=1";

$xml = simplexml_load_file($request_url);


$date = $xml->posts->post ['date'];


in order to get the posting date I need to "= $xml->posts->post ['date'];" so is there anyway to do something like = $xml->posts->post ['date'("D, d M Y", strtotime($date)];
