Hi, why does "$date = date(y-m-d);" return following (with error_reporting(E_ALL)) Notice: Use of undefined constant y - assumed 'y' in /srv/www/htdocs/web2/html/php/nospam/pop.php on line 48 Notice: Use of undefined constant m - assumed 'm' in /srv/www/htdocs/web2/html/php/nospam/pop.php on line 48 Notice: Use of undefined constant d - assumed 'd' in /srv/www/htdocs/web2/html/php/nospam/pop.php on line 48 and it just writes 0000-00-00, why? :( Thanks!...

    Because you're supposed to provide this function with a string argument.

    Try putting quote marks around it like this:

    $date = date("y-m-d");

    It is correct that you need to pass a string as the first argument to
    date(), but there is not need to use double quote marks as this will
    force PHP to p the string looking for variables et.c.
