I have this bit of code to see if a date is greater or equal to a set date.
echo(date("m/d/Y",strtotime($jobs_effective_start)));// displays entered date
echo(date("m/d/Y",strtotime(WSOFFBEGIN))); // displays set date of 09/16/2011
if (!(date("m/d/Y",strtotime($jobs_effective_start)) >=
$error.="The effective start date must be AFTER
My error message is displaying. The if statement is executing as true, as if
01/03/2012 is not greater or equal to 09/16/2011.
This is not correct since a date in 2012 should be greater than a date in 2011.
If I use 12/31/2011 as the $job_effective_start date the error message is not
displayed since 12/31/2011 is greater than 09/16/2011 and the if statement
executes as fasle.
Any ideas on why a 2012 date is treated as not greater than a 2011 date?
