Time Functions

Can anyone think of a way to display "We're Open", or "We're Closed" on a business website that would automatically display the correct one based upon the current server time?

So for instance, if our business hours were 10am-9pm, the script would check if it's between those hours. If it were, it would display, "We're Open, Call Us at...". And if it were not during those hours, it would display something like "Sorry We're Closed, We'll Open back up at 11am".

Any ideas?

I'm not great with dates, but hopefully this works out:

$time = date("His");
if($time > "095959")
if($time < "210000")
echo "open";
echo "closed";

If your server is not in the same timezone as your business then you will need to use the

function instead, so you can offset the time :)
