    Previous /Next Day

    weezerboy Level 1

      I have a page where the day and date is displayed like this.



         < Previous Day      -  Wednesday January  23, 2013   >    Next Day



      How do I make it so when the userclicks on < Previous Day    link that they go to Tuesday January  22, 2013 and when they lick on > Next Day they go to Thursday January  24, 2013  etc?

          Make them links with url variables.

            Yes. What would the links be?

              It's tough to provide good answers when we don't know all the details.  Are you passing these pages to a database to pull info for that day?  Do you just need a date selector?


              I threw this together in a few minutes (and I'm sure it looks it!)

              <cfset somedate = [date of whatever your current page is]>

              <cfset yesterday = dateadd("d",-1,somedate)>

              <cfset tomorrow = dateadd("d",1,somedate)>

              <cfoutput><a href="page.cfm?date=#dateformat(yesterday,"yyyymmdd")#">&lt; Previous Day</a> - #dateformat(somedate,"mmmm dd, yyyy")# - <a href="page.cfm?date=#dateformat(tomorrow,"yyyymmdd")#">Next Day &gt;</a></cfoutput>


              But "somedate" would have to come from somewhere.  Your database?  Hard to know without some more info.
