ok, 2 questions. first, how do i do a mysql query that orders by date? like, say i
want to have 5 newest members who have signed up? i want it to display only 5 also.
how do i do that? like this?
$newestquery = "SELECT artid,title,artdate,artauthor FROM article WHERE artdate <=
$today ORDER BY artdate DESC LIMIT 5";
and also, my next question is how do i format the display of date and time from how
MySQL stores it to where i want it displayed differently in PHP? like, mysql will
store it as YYYY-DD-MM and i want it displayed in php as date("n.j.y.") and time
displayed as $time = date("g:ia"); my time and date columns are 2 different columns
in my TABLE, and i want to know how to format the date to enter into mysql and how to
format it when i retrive it from mysql. thanks for your help.
