Format DataAssist Date Statment

Scratching my head on this one.

DA creates the following code :

php:
<td class="WADAResultsTableCell"><?php echo($row_WADAarticles['date']); ?></td>

where date is an epoch timestamp in a MySQL database. The date currently displays on the Web Page as "2011-07-11 15:35:34" -- I want to display the date as "July 7, 2011".

I can't find the proper placement for the formatting code -- if I do this

php:
<td class="WADAResultsTableCell"><?php echo($row_WADAarticles['date'])('F j, Y'); ?>

(which I believe is the proper formatting code) the line is flagged as an error.

Help??

you need to use both the strtotime() and date() functions


the strtotime() function converts the string to a unix timestamp

the date() function formats the timestamp based on the format parameters you pass in

php:
<td class="WADAResultsTableCell"><?php echo(date("F j, Y"strtotime($row_WADAarticles['date']))); ?></td>




in your code, you where passing the parameters, but not using the data() function
