Hi All,
Firstly Happy New Year!!!

Secondly, GreyWulf, I need your wisdom…

Does PHP support such a feature, similar to VB for Datediff, and “elseif”
Tried, but for some reason its freakishly hard to find what you want, even using the search engine…

The “elseif” stuff is needed for a a date compare,
EG: (in English/VB)
if month(now)=“December” and day(now)=“25” then result=“Happy Christmas”
elseif month(now)=“January” and day(now)=“01” the result=“Happy New Year”

etc etc

Hey Roy :) Happy New Year!

Take a look at getdate – this should give you the info you need for getting the current date in a usable format.

I suggest avoiding an elseif type structure. If there’s more than two choices (if….else….) use switch instead as it’s a lot easier to expand as the need arises.

Check out the comments on those two pages – on, the comments are much better than the manual itself :D

Hope that helps.
