Using the PHP date function



The following is some lists of the date and time characters to use between
the round brackets of date. They are all case sensitive. The date function syntax
is this, remember:

date( date_characters_here )

The script from the previous page was this:


$today = date(‘d-m-y’);
print $today;


The first list is for the day of the week characters. Try them out on your
script above.

That’s quite a lot of characters! Mostly, you’ll be dipping in
and out to find the one you need. Here’s a few examples of the way you can use
the above. Try out the following scripts to see how they work.


Example 1 (prints out something like Monday 7th January


$today = date(‘l jS F Y’);
print $today;


Example 2 (prints out something like “It’s week
4 of 2017”)


$today = date(‘W’);
$year = date(‘Y’);
print “It’s week ” . $today . ” of ” . $year;


Example 3 (prints out something like “11:25:44 am”)


$time = date(‘h:i:s a’);
print $time;


Example 4 (prints out something like “23:28 GMT Standard Time”)


$time = date(‘G:i T’);
print $time;


In the next part, we’ll see another useful date/time function when we look
at getdate().
