I am having a bit of problem adding 15 days to the createdDate

<?php echo date('Y-m-d', strtotime($invoicesRecord['createdDate'] ' + 15 days')); ?>

The above is giving me Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '' + 15 days'' (T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING) 


Hi Kenny, 

No worries, try this (added concatenation operator "." before ' + 15 days: 

  echo date('Y-m-d', strtotime($invoicesRecord['createdDate'] .' + 15 days'));

Also, sometimes what I do what the there's a lot of syntactic noise (operators and characters all bunched together) is break it down into multiple simple statements: 

$createdDate  = $invoicesRecord['createdDate'];
$dateIn15Days = strtotime("$createdDate + 15 days");
echo date('Y-m-d', $dateIn15Days);

Hope that helps!
