Howdy all,

I am pulling dates from mysql in yyyy-mm-dd format. I would like to display them in another format, either mm.dd.yyyy or month name, dd, yyyy.

I found the below script and it would work, but I have 5 "updates" being displayed on one page and I don't want to interfere with the display of the content. View http://www.plusoneonline.com/home to see what I am talking about.
Code:
$date = "2000-12-11"; 
$temp = explode("-", $date); 
$year = $temp[0]; 
$month = $temp[1]; 
$day = $temp[2]; 
print date ("l, F jS, Y", mktime (0,0,0,$month,$day,$year));
What would be the best way of doing this? I am using this code to pull from the DB.
Code:
<?php

$conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass);
if (!$conn) {
echo "<P>Unable to connect to the database server at this time.</P>";
exit();
}

if (! @mysql_select_db($dbname) ) {
echo( "<P>Unable to locate the database at this time.</P>" );
exit();
}

$result = mysql_query("SELECT date, content FROM po_updates ORDER BY date DESC LIMIT 5;");
if (!$result) {
echo "<P>Error performing query on database";
exit();
}

while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
echo "<span class=\"divider\" width=\"100%\">";
	if ($row["date"] > 3) {
		echo "<img src=\"../images/image_new.gif\" width=\"30\" height=\"15\" border=\"0\" align=\"left\">";
	}
echo "&nbsp;".$row["date"]."</span><br><br>";
echo $row["content"];
echo "<br><br>";
}

?>
The part in bold is a way for me to show a "NEW" image for entries that are newer than 3 days (I am still working on that part)
