    On one of my blocks I need to insert a date that the member adds when making a new event. The problem I run into is that it keeps wanting to enter no date and no id. As well I keep getting this error now since I started using Zend_Date:
    This is the save process page:

    $dwInput $this->_input->filter(array(
    'eid' => XenForo_Input::UINT,
    'event_date' => XenForo_Input::UINT,
    'event_month' => XenForo_Input::NUM,
    'event_day' => XenForo_Input::NUM,
    'event_year' => XenForo_Input::NUM,
    'event_hour' => XenForo_Input::NUM,
    'event_minute' => XenForo_Input::NUM,
    'event_message' => XenForo_Input::STRING,
    'event_username' => XenForo_Input::STRING

    $datearray = array('year' => $dwInput['event_year'],
    'month' => $dwInput['event_month'],
    'day' => $dwInput['event_day'],
    'hour' => $dwInput['event_hour'],
    'minute' => $dwInput['event_minute'],
    'second' => 0);
    $date = new Zend_Date($datearray);

    $dw XenForo_DataWriter::create('xPortal_DataWriter_Events');
            if (
    $redirectType = ($dwInput['eid'] ?
    XenForo_ControllerResponse_Redirect::RESOURCE_UPDATED :
    Here is my page with the fields:
    <xen:title>xPortal Event :: Add</xen:title>
    <div class="selection">
        <h2 class="heading">{xen:phrase xportal_adding_an_event}</h2>
        <div class="sectionContent secondaryContent">

                        <xen:controlunit label="{xen:phrase xportal_event_date}:">
                            <xen:select name="event_month" value="" inputclass="autoSize">
                                <xen:option value=""></xen:option>
                                <xen:option value="1">{xen:phrase month_1}</xen:option>
                                <xen:option value="2">{xen:phrase month_2}</xen:option>
                                <xen:option value="3">{xen:phrase month_3}</xen:option>
                                <xen:option value="4">{xen:phrase month_4}</xen:option>
                                <xen:option value="5">{xen:phrase month_5}</xen:option>

                            <xen:textbox name="event_hour" value="" size="2" inputclass="autoSize" placeholder="{xen:phrase xportal_hour}" />
                            <xen:textbox name="event_minute" value="" size="2" inputclass="autoSize" placeholder="{xen:phrase xportal_minute}" />
                        <xen:textboxunit name="event_username" value="" label="{xen:phrase xportal_event_username}:">
                            <xen:explain>{xen:phrase xportal_event_username_explain}</xen:explain>
            <xen:submitunit save="Save Event">
    <xen:include template="xportal_footer" />
    <xen:require css="filter_list.css" />
    <xen:require js="js/xenforo/filter_list.js" />
    I know the input for username should grab the name of the person logged in but I have not quite figured out how to get that atm, I'll worry about that after my insert issue is resolved.
    Thanks for any and all help

    Same answer as always: start debugging:p

    Have you checked what Zend_Date toString returns???
    Error says that it's no integerer (as it it requested by the dw) so check Zend_Date Help and check how you can get the needed value^^

    I figured out how to mktime() work but now to make 'new Zend_Date()' to work.
