    Re: problem in work with dates in the following format

    The strtotime function can convert a string to a timestamp. A timestamp can be converted to date format. So it is best to store the dates as timestamp in the database, and just output them in the format you like.

    So let's say we have
    $date = "Tuesday, February 14, 2006 @ 10:39 am";
    In order to convert that to a timestamp, we need to get rid of the "@" sign, and we can use the remaining string as a parameter for the strtotime function.

    for example
    $date = "Tuesday, February 14, 2006 @ 10:39 am";
    $date = str_replace("@ ","",$date);
    $date = strtotime($date);

    now $date is a timestamp
    and we can say:

    echo date("d M Y",$date);
