Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Help with a date issue in PHP

    Help with a date issue in PHP

    Okay. I have a showlister. Its simple enough, so Im not going to go into how it runs because it runs perfect.

    My issue is when the event gets removed from the database. This took me a long time to figure out such a simple solution, but there is one error. It deletes all event prior to today and including today's events. I want todays events to stick around until the day is over.




    Here is my code:

    PHP Code:
    $today date('Y-m-d');
    $removeShows="Delete from shows where showDate between '1950-01-10' and '".$today."'";
    $removeResult mysql_query($removeShows) or die (mysql_error());

    Well, thats because your using BETWEEN therefor .. Everything in between $today and 1950-01-10 is going to get deleted.. You should delete the date by using the PRIMARY KEY.. ie its ID..
