My small function is below

PHP Code:
// Date conversion $date is in yyyy-mm-dd format
function dateconvert($date) {
    
$year substr($date04);
    
$month substr($date52);
    
$day substr($date82);

    
$month_list[01] = "January";
    
$month_list[02] = "Febuary";
    
$month_list[03] = "March";
    
$month_list[04] = "April";
    
$month_list[05] = "May";
    
$month_list[06] = "June";
    
$month_list[07] = "July";
    
$month_list[08] = "August";
    
$month_list[09] = "September";
    
$month_list[10] = "October";
    
$month_list[11] = "November";
    
$month_list[12] = "December";

    return 
$month_list[$month] . " " $day ", " $year ".";

My problem is that all it displays is the day and year, but not the month, i'm sure it has somthing to do with the "$month_list[$month]" section, but I don't know.
