Get current time

Recommended Posts

Hi

I want to add a NOW ON AIR LIVE notification to my website. Basically I need to check the current time and then check to see if this time matches or is between thursday 7pm and thursday 10 pm.

I have no idea how to check the time within a time span....any ideas?

Thanks

Will

This will get you started. You might prefer to use the GMT functions. Allow for the offset between your local time and the time zone for your server.
[code]$day_of_the_week = date("W"); // Sunday=0, Monday=1 etc.
$hour_of_the_day = date("G");// 0-23
[/code]

Thanks Andy

I was going at it in a for more complicated manner....not separating the days and the hours. I looked at your response and thought...bloody hell hes missed the point!

BUT...as ever....I was wrong and when I re-read it....the obvious became clear.

If only comon sennse was common practice.

Thanks Mate

Will

Yup, sometimes all it takes is another way of looking at the problem.
