dealing with codeigniter date helper

Hello Guys. i'm here again to ask for your favor, strategies about my problem with date

this is what i want to do:

I have a registration form when this user click the register button
the system saves all the information that has been entered.

my question is,

how can i save the current date and time of the user on his or her timezone?

plus his/her account is limited, how can i add let say 6 months and save to the database the expiration of his/her account.

i hope you guys can help me..
thank you very much.

help help...

this will help you get the user's time:


Once you have that you can look at the MySQL function date_add() to calculate a date 6 months in the future.

Hope that helps you?


EDIT: scratch that ... I think this may work (please note this is totally untested!) ...

You will need to include jquery.js

In the head of your view:
< script type="text/javascript" scr="jquery.js" > </ script >

< script type="text/javascript" >

    function get_user_date()
        var currentTime = new Date()
        var month = currentTime.getMonth() + 1
        var day = currentTime.getDate()
        var year = currentTime.getFullYear()
        return day + '-' + month + '-' + year;

    $(document).ready(function() {

      user_date = get_user_date();

      $.post("/your_controller/store_user_time/" + user_date);

</ script >

your controller:
function store_user_time($user_date)

the jQuery $.post calls your controller which stores the date in a CI session.

If it works you can develop it to add in the user's time as well.

Hope it helps you!
