Date Addition and Subtraction

By Hawkee on Nov 02, 2005

I thought this was pretty neat and useful. You can combine strtotime with the date function to create your own date verbally. This is just an alternative to using mktime that's a little more intuitive.


$date = date('Y-m-d', strtotime("-30 days"));
$date = date('Y-m-d', strtotime("-10 years"));
$date = date('Y-m-d', strtotime("+30 days"));

All it does is set the $date variable to a time specified by strtotime. It\'s a nice example of how convenient PHP makes dealing with time and dates.
