I am trying to accomplish the same thing but different. :)
I wanted to show the month day, year and strip the time.
Original line is:
<?php echo($row_WADAblog['updated']); ?>
I have tried:
<?php echo(date("M d, Y", strtotime("00:00:00 ".$row_WADAblog['updated']))); ?>
But it displays Dec 31, 1969 for all.
I also tried the SQL DATE_FORMAT(updated "%M %d, %Y') AS updated
Maybe that was the wrong approach.
But get sql error.
