Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


This module will manipulate all dates and times in a creative way (plain text), just like the PHP function strtotime().

Example + 1 month

{exp:date_manipulation:set prefix="date" name="test1" modify="+1 month"}
The day 1 month forward is: {date:test1 format="%F %d %Y"}

Example next Thursday

{exp:date_manipulation:set prefix="date" name="test1" modify="next Thursday"}
next Thursday is: {date:test1 format="%F %d %Y"}
