First Issue: Problem
So on a forum, i've condensed the date of a certain event to
$date = $month . " " . $day . ", " . $year;
So instead of storing the Month Day and Year in seperate rows on mysql, i store all three under 1.
But when I want to take this information that i've stored and break it back into 3 parts, how do I do it?
ex) $date = October 14, 2006
I want it seperate out to $month=october $day=14 and $year=2006...
Second Issue: Opinion
Did I make this too complicated? Is there an easier way to store selected dates in a database and retrieving them for updating? (I don't want to store "current" date.
