I am using wordpress for a client site and I am also using a custom page template to pull records from another database other than the WP one.

I am getting this error message:

Notice: A non well formed numeric value encountered in /home/content/35/6358435/html/wp-content/themes/shanley/recipes.php on line 70

Any ideas why that is appearing there? I have attached my code below.

Thanks,

Ryan

$row['date_added'] is almost certainly a mysql format date. This should be an integer as defined by...
http://uk.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php
in order to fix this you can use...
                                 <div class="tag"><?php echo date("m/d/y g:i (A)", strtotime($row['date_added'])); ?></div>  

in place of...
                                <div class="tag"><?php echo date("m/d/y g:i (A)", $row['date_added']); ?></div>

Yeah...
$row['date_added'] was outputting something like... 2010-09-15 21:53:21
but the function was wanting an integer that is a timestamp (the number of seconds since 00:00:00 1st January 1970)
strtotime converts from the text to a timestamp.
