assuming you want the date as 2008-10-27:

echo "http://calendar.site.com/calendar.php?query=SearchCategory=&SearchDate" . date("Y-m-d",strtotime("now")) . "=&SearchDateEnd=" . date('Y-m-d',strtotime("+7 days"));

if you want m/d/Y then change:
Y-m-d

to:
m/d/Y

logically it works, but i have to put %2F  instead of slashes in between the date

IE today would look like:

&SearchDate=2008%2F10%2F27

$twoF = '%2f';
echo "http://calendar.site.com/calendar.php?query=SearchCategory=&SearchDate" . rawurlencode(date("Y m d",strtotime("now"))) . "=&SearchDateEnd=" . rawurlencode(date('Y m d',strtotime("+7 days")));

not clear what you mean but try:
echo "http://calendar.site.com/calendar.php?query=SearchCategory=&SearchDate" . urlencode(date("m/d/Y",strtotime("now"))) . "=&SearchDateEnd=" . urlencode(date('m/d/Y',strtotime("+7 days")));

Neither of those methods worked.

here is a sample of what the date string should look like:

&SearchDate=2008%2F10%2F27&SearchDateEnd=2008%2F11%2F3

>>what the date string should look like
I tested my last post and that is exactly what it does. Not sure if you are doing something else in your code.

Wow that is weird. When I mouse over the link it puts slashes in, but when I click the link it uses the %F2 - thanks for the help.
