Can someone please help me with a time issue? I have dates in the database and want to determine if the current date is in between them. I have written a function using strtotime() which I thought was working but doesn't appear to be now. My two date fields look like this: 'RegStart' => 'Date', 'RegStop' => 'Date',

I wrote a function like this:
function openForReg() {
$regClass = DataObject::get('Product', "`Location` = 'AOQ'", "rand()", "", "1");
if (strtotime($this->RegStart) < time() AND strtotime($this->RegStop) > time()) return $regClass;

Where am I going wrong?
Thanks for any help.
