Hi,

I am trying to convert a date to a unix time stamp using the plugin Gravity Form and Sugar Events Calendar.


Using the code below, I am trying to combine the action from here and convert it to a unix time stamp using another action from line 108 from here. But I don't really know what to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

add_action("gform_pre_submission_2", "pre_submission_handler");
function pre_submission_handler($form){
    $_POST["input_12"] = sc_meta_box_save($post_id);
}

Sorry you have that stumbling block in the way of your success -- it should be simpler.  The conversion is a built-in PHP function, strtotime().  All that other framework stuff is non-value-added when the question is as simple as this.

An article showing how to handle DATE/TIME values is available here:

Best regards and best of luck with your project, ~Ray

here is the solution from David Peralty:
"I have a field called Time Stamp. I gave it the CSS class of hidden. I added .hidden { display: none; } to my style.css. I checked off "allow populate dynamically" and just for fun I gave it a parameter of timestamp.

Here is what I have in my functions.php file: http://pastebin.com/u7zhZXYV"
