PHP Date + Time Primer - Conclusion
(Page 3 of 3 )

Hopefully it has become evident from this tutorial, adding the current date and time to your web site is extremely easy. This addition will also help to give your web site a more appealing and professional look. Furthermore, it helps to add an extra dose of functionality that your site visitors will come to appreciate.

The same date functions can be applied to pages accepting data input if you wish to record dates and times, though this task can often be performed automatically by the database you are using. However, this point is still worth mentioning since some PHP programmers occasionally use a flat file database without this functionality.
