Time :s

A couple of weeks ago, i was asked to add to the usersonline.php how long people had been online for...

i attempted to do this, but felt it was slightly out... now some people are telling me it doubles how long they have been online for...

I just wondered what the easiest way to do this was.... i currently take a unix timestamp when they log in, and use the laston timestamp already taken

 

$online=$r['laston']-$r['lastlogin'];
$onunits="secs";

if ($online<0){$online='0';}
if ($online>=60){$onunits="mins"; $online=(int)($online/60);}
if ($online>=24){$onunits="hrs"; $online=(int)($online/24);}

$online="$online$onunits";

 

can anyone help me spot where the error is?

Re: Time :s

 

if ($online>=60*60){$onunits="hrs"; $online=(int)($online/(60*60));}

 

The math on the hours was wrong. You were dividing seconds by 24. That gives you a unit of slightly less than half a minute (half a minute = seconds / 30)

So, for hours, it's 60*60 and then divide the seconds by that ;)

Re: Time :s

That would be due to a seperate error which is the order of your if's and the fact that you'll need elseif's instead of just plain if's.

 

if ($online<0){$online='0';}
elseif ($online>=60*60){$onunits="hrs"; $online=(int)($online/(60*60));}
elseif ($online>=60){$onunits="mins"; $online=(int)($online/60);}
else { // I guess this would be for seconds.....
}
