some date formatting just day just month just year

Useful if you need to get PHP to return parts of the date.

The date today in number format

$date_today = date("d"); 

e.g: 21

Todays month name

$month_name = date("F"); 

e.g: July

Current Year as a number

$year = date("Y"); 

e.g: 2017

you can also get a specific day using the date function, to get yesterdays date you can do the following:

date('d F Y',strtotime("-1 days"));

this should output yesterdays date, e.g: 20 July 2017
