[How to] Create Time Ago in PHP

img-php time ago function thumbnail.jpg

 Hello there,
After a long time I am back with simple and little tricky but widely used code. If you want to create time ago system just like facebook. This is just a simple and tiny function which will convert PHP timestamp.

If you stored time with time() function in then this will be very easy just use the following function. Time() function returns the current time measured in the number of seconds since the Unix Epoch (January 1 1970 00:00:00 GMT).

function get_time($t_time) {
    $pt = time() - $t_time;
    if ($pt>31536000)
        $p = date("Y-M-j",$t_time);
    elseif ($pt>=86400)
        $p = date("M-j",$t_time);
    elseif ($pt>=3600)
        $p = (floor($pt/3600))."h ago";
    elseif ($pt>=60)
        $p = (floor($pt/60))."m ago";
    elseif ($pt<2)
        $p="Just now";
        $p = $pt."s ago";
    return $p;

If current time is greater than an year(31536000 seconds) then this will return full date  yy-mm-dd similarly if current time is less than an year  this will return just  mm-dd format furthermore it will return  hour, minute and second ago.

To call the function just type get_time(time()-100);

Thanks for reading :)
