Automatic date stamp

Hi,

How can I make the date on my website to change daily so I don't have to do it manually?

Thanks!!

You can try this on a page that is .php

Insert this into your page... set the +3 to whatever you like. This is for a numerical date.

<?php
$tomorrow = mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m"), date("d")+3, date("y"));
echo "Order By ".date("m/d/y", $tomorrow);
?>

Is it an easy process to change a page from .html to .php?

How about a Date for non-php pages?

Sure is Colin! All you have to do is.......... are you ready?

Change the .html to .php and your are done! Voila!

As for a html script.... I would have to look for one.

You can change the date with javascript too. Found this on the net.. it has a bunch of clock and date scripts. You can pick the one you like most.
