You could always make your own function. If you need help with that i would be glad to help there too.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Displaying Date from Value in MySQL DB
Date: Tue, 20 Apr 2004 14:27:30 -0400

Hey All,

Looking to try to figure at small problem.

This is the SQL query I am using to show the next event on a page:

SELECT ditoevents.eventstatus, ditoevents.eventdate, DATE_FORMAT(ditoevents.eventdate, '%a, %b %d %Y'), ditoevents.eventtime, ditoevents.eventlocation, ditoevents.topic, ditoevents.presenter
FROM ditoevents
WHERE ditoevents.eventstatus = 'next'

This is the structure of the table in the MySQL db:

CREATE TABLE ditoevents (
  ID char(3) NOT NULL default '',
  eventID char(2) NOT NULL default '',
  eventstatus varchar(4) NOT NULL default '',
  eventdate date NOT NULL default '0000-00-00',
  eventtime time NOT NULL default '00:00:00',
  eventlocation text NOT NULL,
  topic text NOT NULL,
  presenter text NOT NULL

The problem is, the date value that's being pulled from the DB is being displayed as 2004-05-12. I would like the date to be displayed as, Wednesday, May 12th, 2004.

How do I do this with PHP. I looked at some of the date functions, and I'm a bit confused.
