This will convert a sortable YYYY-MM-DD date into a more presentable date. $date can be set to any date as long as it fits this format. <?php

list($year, $month, $day) = split("-", $date);
$date = date('M d, Y', mktime(0, 0, 0, $month, $day, $year));

?>

If it were to do Visual Basic it would be ASP. I want to introduce new languages slowly though. It takes time for each one to become established

I\'ve used this a countless number of times. I used to have to look it up but I can pretty much do it from memory now.
