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

    PHP Code:
    // if the date is greater than today
    if($date date('Y-m-d'))
    {
    // show record

    "You are playing a very dangerous game"
    "Change always is"

    If the previous one did not work then...

    PHP Code:
    // if the date is greater than today 
    if(strtotime($date1) > strtotime(date('Y-m-d'))) 

    // show record 

    date('Y-m-d') means today's date
    strtotime(date('Y-m-d')) means today as a timestamp

    In what format are your dates? timestamp? Y-m-d?
    "You are playing a very dangerous game"
    "Change always is"
