dates displaying incorrectly...

Hey Jason

Hope you had a great weekend?

Just getting a bit stumped on a couple of things.

Have attached 2 files in a zip... one is a news page and the other is a special offers page.

Re the News page....

This is linked to from the home page, and when you access it from the home page, the date posted bit is showing 01/01/1970 - however, if you then navigate the other news items the correct date is being shown...

Re the special offers page, regardless of whether or not you access the page directly from the home page or you navigate the special offers on the page itself, it shows the date Posted 10/10/2012

I have spent ages trying to figure out why and what is happening but just cant figure it ou... any pointers would be gratefully appreciated

Thanks

Jamie

on the news page, the default value for the URLParam in the DatePostedRS is set to "1", that must not be a value that is the database. use a valid value for the default value.

look at the links you have, what are the values for the zNews querystring variable? use one of those.

for the special offers page, you are using a URL variable named:
zSpecial Offers

you cannot have spaces in URL variables names, recreate the links so the URL variables does not contain spaces in the name:

php:
<a href="special-offers.php?zSpecialOffers=<?php echo $row_SpecialPanelRS['ContentPageSetOrder']; ?>"">



and edit the recordset so that the run time value for the URLParam of the DatePostedRS recordset is:

$_GET['zSpecialOffers']

thanks Jason

Got the URL variable sorted but not getting the dateposted sorted at all

I have made multiple changes and have checked the database and to be honest I am not sure what I need to put in there.

In the database in the ContentPageSetOrder column, each entry has its own number but the 'top level' shows as NULL... I have no idea what I need to change the DatePostedRS record set to... and now that you have highlighted it, its happening on both the special offers as well as the news page

Thanks

Jamie
