    Hello All,

    We have a new date plugin in beta here for all to use and test. This plugin contains some date functions to add or subtract days, months and/or years to the current date or a preset date. You can also change the format of how the date will be returned.

    Download Link: http://viminteractive.com/ee_addons/dt_v0.1.zip

    Here is the writeup and code examples below:

    =============================
        The Tag
        =============================
    
        {exp:dt}
    
            // Will return the date formatted this way: MM/DD/YYYY
    
        ==============
        TAG PARAMETERS
        ==============
    
        set=[optional]
               Sets the static date that the other parameters will reference. If not set will default to the current date.
    
        {exp:dt set="01/01/2010"} 
    
            // 01/01/2010
    
        =============================
    
        format=[optional]
               Sets the format of the returned date using the following parameters: <a href="http://php.net/manual/en/function.strftime.php">http://php.net/manual/en/function.strftime.php</a>
    
        {exp:dt format="%A %b %e, %Y"} 
    
            // Saturday Nov 3, 1990 
    
        =============================
    
        day=[optional]
            Adds or subtracts a value in days to current/set date.
    
        month=[optional]
             Adds or subtracts a value in months to current/set date.
    
        year=[optional]
             Adds or subtracts a value in years to current/set date.
    
        {exp:dt day="3" month="1" year="-1" set="1/1/2010"}
            //    02/04/09

    Please reply with any bugs, questions or comments.

    adisys,

    We will take a look at this later today.

    One question, what type of variable is pts_start_date?
