    $nextWeek = time() + (7 * 24 * 60 * 60);
               // 7 days; 24 hours; 60 mins; 60 secs
    echo 'Now:       '. date('d-m-Y') ."\n";
    //echo 'Next Week: '. date('Y-m-d', $nextWeek) ."\n";

I haven't considered this code closely, but why aren't you using a datepicker?

So your vet is open 7 days a week?

Don't add seconds in order to change the date, use the DateTime object and add with a DateInterval.

What's going on with all that javascript? A datepicker will give you a calendar.


can you please add datepicker in my code.I tried but it has not worked.


A datepicker should give you a valid date, whereas separate dropdowns need to be passed to a validator as you can end up with something like 2014-09-31, which is obviously invalid or the issue with leap years.

So the choice is between validation convenience and user convenience (datepickers may be more awkward than dropdowns - especially for mobile users).

Your PHP code though could be modernized:

$dates = [];
$dt = new DateTime(); //now
$dates['one_week'] = $dt->add(new DateInterval('P1W'))->format('Y-m-d');
$dates['three_week'] = $dt->add(new DateInterval('P2W'))->format('Y-m-d');
$dates['six_week'] = $dt->add(new DateInterval('P3W'))->format('Y-m-d');

echo "<pre>";
echo "</pre>";

or even:

$dt = new DateTime(); //now
$dates = [$dt->add(new DateInterval('P1W'))->format('Y-m-d'), $dt->add(new DateInterval('P2W'))->format('Y-m-d'), $dt->add(new DateInterval('P3W'))->format('Y-m-d')];

echo "<pre>";
echo "</pre>";

Coming back to the datepicker - you can choose a bog-standard HTML5 datepicker (may not display correctly across all browseers - check first) or select a script of your choice, e.g. jQueryUI. There are literally hundreds of these out there.
