I am confuse how to convert tuesday to exact date in this week to get

use strtotime to get the appropriate week date, then convert that value to a date.

Thank you for the reply, can I ask what is the ‘next’ ? I didn’t see that in manual.

It’s in the relative date formats:

it works now using this

echo date(‘Y-m-d’, strtotime(‘Tuesday’));

@DaveMaxwell, Thank you :smile:

You can also do it this way →


$myDate = new DateTime("Next Tuesday", new DateTimeZone("America/Detroit"));

echo $myDate->format("Y-m-d") . "<br>\n";
