Retrieve Day and Month as separate strings.

Discussion in 'Styling and Customization Questions' started by MatthewEnderle, Aug 2, 2012.

  1. Hello, I am trying to create a unique style for my XenPorta Recent News block. I need to display only the day's number of the promotion date.

    I managed to find this inside the block's php.
    foreach ($news AS &$post)
    $strtime = new DateTime(date('r'$post['promote_date']));
    $strtime->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone(XenForo_Application::get('options')->guestTimeZone));
    $post['month'], $post['day']) = explode('.'$strtime->format('n.d'));
    $post['month'] = new XenForo_Phrase('month_'.$post['month'].'_short');
    I tried to put {xen:helper thread, $post['day'])} in a span but it won't let me even save the template. I will also need to get the Month too but I was guessing I can do a if/then for "If &month = 8 then &monthStr = 'Aug'
  2. NeverMind I figured it out.

    In the EWRblock_RecentNews template:

    Day = {xen:date {$news.post_date}, 'j'}
    Month = {xen:date {$news.post_date}, 'M'}
