I think it's all kind of specific to what you want to create. 

If you want a drop down box filled with dates from the past Thursday to
the next Wednesday, for example, you can find the date of the last
Thursday with strtotime("last Thursday"), I think. Figure out how many
seconds are in a day and make a little loop that adds the seconds to
what you got from strtotime() and uses date() to format it. 

What database are you using? There are many functions that most
databases provide that can help with this, too.
