[SOLVED] variables/date problem

Ok, I have a problem. I have a code (mostly built from the ground-up by myself with a little help from others) to have a simple news system. The two main variables I have problems with are "Date" and "id". I so far have the script set up so that when a user types in "index.php?Date=whatever", it'll show all the news for that date. If a user types in "index.php?id=whatever", it only shows that specific news post. So far so good. Let me show you a part of the script first.

 

$Date variable script:

if($_GET['date']) {
  // Get date from _GET param or current date if not available
  $_GET['date'] = @trim(stripslashes($_GET['date']));
  $date = ($_GET['date'] && !empty($_GET['date'])) ? date('Y-m-d', strtotime(trim($_GET['date']))) : date('Y-m-d');
  
  $result = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM news WHERE Date = "' . $date . '" ORDER BY Time');
  $curtime = time();
  if ($result && mysql_num_rows($result)) {
    $numrows = mysql_num_rows($result);
    $rowcount = 1;
         
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) { 
  print "<b>{$row['Title']}</b><br />
{$row['News']}<br />
<span style=\"font-size:10px\"><b>Posted by:</b> {$row['Posted_by']}   ({$row['Date']}   {$row['Time']})   <a href=\"http://www.allaroundhalo.org/index.php?id={$row['id']}\">Permalink</a>)</span><br /><br />"; 
}      
      print "<br />";
      ++$rowcount;
    }     
}

 

I need to have the script check today's date and get news for today if the "?date=" part isn't typed in the URL (ex: index.php). BUT I can't allow today's news to show when a user is requesting a specific date or id. Any suggestions? Any help will be appreciated.

Try this:

 

if($_GET['date']) {
  // Get date from _GET param or current date if not available
  $_GET['date'] = @trim(stripslashes($_GET['date']));
  $date = ($_GET['date'] && !empty($_GET['date'])) ? date('Y-m-d', strtotime(trim($_GET['date']))) : date('Y-m-d');
  
  $result = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM news WHERE Date = "' . $date . '" ORDER BY Time');
  $curtime = time();
  if ($result && mysql_num_rows($result)) {
    $numrows = mysql_num_rows($result);
    $rowcount = 1;
         
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) { 
  print "<b>{$row['Title']}</b><br />
{$row['News']}<br />
<span style=\"font-size:10px\"><b>Posted by:</b> {$row['Posted_by']}   ({$row['Date']}   {$row['Time']})   <a href=\"http://www.allaroundhalo.org/index.php?id={$row['id']}\">Permalink</a>)</span><br /><br />"; 
}      
      print "<br />";
      ++$rowcount;
}
}

else {

  // IF no date selected, show todays date.
  $now = date("Y-m-d");
  
  $result = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM news WHERE Date = "' . $now . '" ORDER BY Time');
  $curtime = time();
  if ($result && mysql_num_rows($result)) {
    $numrows = mysql_num_rows($result);
    $rowcount = 1;
         
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) { 
  print "<b>{$row['Title']}</b><br />
{$row['News']}<br />
<span style=\"font-size:10px\"><b>Posted by:</b> {$row['Posted_by']}   ({$row['Date']}   {$row['Time']})   <a href=\"http://www.allaroundhalo.org/index.php?id={$row['id']}\">Permalink</a>)</span><br /><br />"; 
}      
      print "<br />";
      ++$rowcount;
}

}

if (isset($_GET['id']) && is_numeric($_GET['id'])) {
     // Display news for the id
} elseif (isset($_GET['date']) && !empty($_GET['date'])) {
     // Display news for the specified date
} else {
     // Display news for today
}
