in none

commenter and comment time in the sidebar

using b.‘s code he wrote for my itunes-trackback-thingie i prettied up the comment stuff a bit. (i hope the code he sucked out of his brain is “freeware” :-)
now you see who and when posted the last comment.
i like it, do you?

anyway, here’s the full code for your abuse:

<?php
function datediff2($datestr)
{
$r = array();
$d = time() – strtotime($datestr);
if ($d > 86400*2)
array_push($r, floor($d / 86400) . “d”);
elseif ($d > 86400)
array_push($r, “1d”);
$d = $d % 86400;
if ($d > 7200)
array_push($r, floor($d / 3600) . “h”);
else if ($d > 3600)
array_push($r, “1h”);
$d = $d % 3600;
if ($d > 120)
array_push($r, floor($d / 60) . “min”);
else if ($d > 60)
array_push($r, “1min”);
if (!count($r))
return “now”;
else
return implode(“, “, $r) . ” ago”;
}
?>

<div class=”side”>
<$MTComments lastn=”5″$ sort_order=”descend”>
[<a href=”<$MTBlogArchiveURL$><$MTCommentEntryID pad=”1″$>.html”><$MTCommentAuthor$></a>, <? echo datediff2(‘<$MTCommentDate format=”%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S”$>’); ?>
]<br />
</MTComments>
</div>

i really hope berni does not mind if i post his code here.
just to make it clear: my only achievement are the last lines between <div class=”side”> and </div> the rest is fully credited to the code-master b.

  1. Oh boy, that must have been late at night.

    Use instead:

    function datediff2($datestr)
    {
    $r = array();
    $d = time() – strtotime($datestr);
    $units = array(“d” => 86400, “h” => 3600, “min” => 60);
    foreach ($unit as $label => $step) {
    if ($d > $step)
    array_push($r, floor($d / $step) . $label);
    $d = $d % $step;
    }
    if (!count($r))
    return “now”;
    else
    return implode(“, “, $r) . ” ago”;
    }

    Much cleaner, and you can more easily add new units like weeks.
