what is the original value of $row_WADAblog['updated']?
you can probably just us this code:
<?php echo(date("M d, Y", strtotime($row_WADAblog['updated']))); ?>
the reason for adding a date to the code for the OP in this thread was that they had the time stored in the database as hh:ii:ss (ex. 12:41:22)and the wanted to strip the seconds(ex. 12:41). the strtotime command requires a full date (yyyy-mm-dd hh:ii:ss), so for the date command to work, a date needed to be added to the time (ex. "2012-1-1 ".$row_Recordset1['from']).
in your code, your adding time information to the date at the beginning which not the correct format.
