Post subject: How many days between the posts

Hi there!

Lets try to write more posts then the spambots! icon_wink.gif

I would like to add the number of days between posts.

If the first post is written 04 Jun 2010 06:41
and the second 15 Jun 2010 18:03
Then I would like to show it like this:
15 Jun 2010 18:03 (+11)
If possible I would like to eliminate the function in the first post.

Anyone an idea?

I don't have access to my database at the moment so I can't check the specifics, but the PHP for it is extremely simple icon_smile.gif

I suppose phpBB is just using the time() function to get its time and date. Take post2's time() and subtract post1's time(), suppose you get A. If you just want the hours, divide A by 3600 (seconds) to get B = hours passed between the two posts. Then you can round that up, down or naturally with ceil(B), floor(B) or round(B) so you don't have something like 1.265 hours.

The tougher part is to actually get the approriate values to edit from the code, place your function there and edit the template.

It's also a bit more complicated if you want minutes. Take variable B above and don't round it. Then I think you could use explode('.', B, 2) (replace B with an actual variable), which will give you two variables: the value before the period and the decimals. For instance:

Code:
$my_full_time = explode('.', $b, 2);
$my_hours = $my_full_time[0];
$my_minutes = round($my_full_time[1] * 60);


Of course there are plenty other ways you could be doing this.

Oh, days icon_razz.gif

Let's see, then: 60 * 60 * 24 = 86400 seconds per day. The method itself doesn't change icon_smile.gif

As for not showing it in the first post (didn't understand what you meant earlier, I was just waking up icon_smile.gif), a simple
Code:
if ([difference between A and B] == 0) { /* Make the display variable empty */}
else { /* Display variable = "+$days since original post" */}

should be enough.
