Max Min dates not validating

Max Min dates not validating


I've installed a date picker and then trying to validate this to a period of +1 to +31 days following system date.

The date picker works ok and return a valid YYYY-mm-dd result.

Whe I validate the page keeps returning to same page suggetsing an error. If I remove the validation the page passes to the following page on submit.

The code WA has written into the page is:

if (isset($_POST["postp2"])) {
$WAFV_Redirect = "";
$_SESSION['WAVT_proposalsPostpone_198_Errors'] = "";

if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
$WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];

$WAFV_Errors = "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateDT(((isset($_POST["postp"]))?$_POST["postp"]:"") . "",true,".*","mktime(0, 0, 0, date(\"m\") , date(\"d\")+1, date(\"Y\"));","mktime(0, 0, 0, date(\"m\") , date(\"d\")+31, date(\"Y\"));",true,".*","","",true,2);

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {

I'm using a php page, from a template, date picker inserted by removing the lock and reinstalling after inserting the date picker.

Dates are always a nightmare - but can you see what I've done wrong please.

it looks like you are entering the min and max dates as php without including the php brackets:

mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m") , date("d")+31, date("Y"));

try entering it as:

<?php echo(mktime(000date("m") , date("d")+31date("Y"))); ?>
