Auto updating date

Hey Jason

Just wondering how one would go about displaying a date that automatically updates every 2 weeks (for a duration of 2 weeks) indefinitely ?
Eg take today's date, auto update for 2 weeks from today and so on every 2 wks

Cheers

Jamie

Ok, it's to do with a business networking group I did a site for. They meet every 2 weeks and on the site the meeting date is currently update manually in the backend.

Is there a way to automate this so that, for example, if their meeting was today (29 May) that at midnight (or another specified hour) the meeting date in the site would auto update to the next date in 2 weeks (12 June) which then auto updates again to the meeting m2 weeks after that and so on

It would require setting up a php page that does the update of the date, then setting up the server to do a cron job to run the page every 2 weeks.

Thanks Jason. Is that something that would fit in time wise in a premier ticket?

We could help with setting up the update page, but setting up the cron job would be a server configuration issue. We would not be able to help with that part.
