A while ago you showed me how to display a custom date field in the format dd/mm/yyyy but putting:

<?php $dt = explode(" ", "{LINKDATEOFBIRTH}"); $parts = explode("-", $dt[0]); echo "{$parts[2]}/{$parts[1]}/{$parts[0]}"; ?>


Is there a way that I can get it to display dd m, yyy (ie 01 April 2011)?

TIA

Maybe by parsing it through the date functions like
<?php
$dt = explode(" ", "{LINKDATEOFBIRTH}");
$parts = explode("-", $dt[0]); echo "{$parts[2]}/{$parts[1]}/{$parts[0]}";
$time = strtotime("{$parts[0]}/{$parts[1]}/{$parts[2]}");
echo strftime("%d %B %Y", $time);
?>

If that doesn't work I can write the code as a $10 custom project.
