Hi there,
how do I pull up members who joined with the 2 days?

so far I have...
(The date is also in this format in the members table)

$today = date('m-d-Y',strtotime("now"));

$connection = mysql_connect ("localhost","myuser", "mypass") or die ("Cannot make the connection");
$db = mysql_select_db ("mydb",$connection) or die ("Cannot connect to database");
$sql_query = "SELECT * FROM members WHERE datejoined='$today' ORDER BY id DESC";
$result = mysql_query($sql_query);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)){
      $member1      = "$row[0]";

try changing:
$today = date('m-d-Y',strtotime("now"));

$today = date('m-d-Y',strtotime("-2 days"));

and also:
$sql_query = "SELECT * FROM members WHERE datejoined='$today' ORDER BY id DESC";

$sql_query = "SELECT * FROM members WHERE datejoined>='$today' ORDER BY id DESC";
