Found this code on the web, gives me a list of the dates of each friday. However I need the sort reversed. Current friday at top then descending order of each friday
$start = strtotime("today"); // your start/end dates here
$end = strtotime("today + 1 years");

$friday = strtotime("friday", $start);
while($friday <= $end) {
    echo "fri=", date("m-d-y", $friday), "\n";
   echo "<br>";
    $friday = strtotime("+1 weeks", $friday);
}

Here you go.
 
$start = strtotime("today"); // your start/end dates here
$end = strtotime("today + 1 years");

$friday = strtotime("friday", $end);
while($friday >= $start) {
    echo "fri=", date("m-d-y", $friday), "\n";
   echo "<br>";
    $friday = strtotime("-1 weeks", $friday);
}

<?

$start = strtotime("today"); // your start/end dates here
$end = strtotime("today + 1 years");

$currentfriday = strtotime("friday", $start);
echo "fri=", date("m-d-y", $currentfriday), "<br>"; //print the current friday
$endfriday = strtotime("friday", $end); //set to next friday

while($endfriday > $currentfriday) {  //print in descending order
    echo "fri=", date("m-d-y", $endfriday), "<br>";
    $endfriday = strtotime("-1 weeks", $endfriday);   
}

?>

Sorry, don't think I was clear. What I need is a list of Fridays starting from the current Friday going back each week and listing Fridays in descending order.

The + signs becomes - (minus) and you have to flip the 'smaller than' sign to an 'bigger then' sign.

<?php
$start = strtotime("today"); // your start/end dates here
$end = strtotime("today - 1 years");

$friday = strtotime("friday", $start);
while($friday >= $end) {
    echo "fri=", date("m-d-y", $friday), "\n";
   echo "<br>";
    $friday = strtotime("-1 weeks", $friday);
}
    
?>
