I mentioned your name because you previously posted code similar to what I need. Someone asked how to display content on a certain day. How can I modify your answer to display content at a certain time, such as 7:00 PM?

Your answer to displaying content on a certain day:

public function Content() {
      $content = $this->getField('Content');

      if (date('N')==1) { //if Monday
         $content = 'It is Monday you get this string instead';

      return $content;

I found the answer:

$end_date = strtotime('02:00pm April 1, 2012');
$now = time();
if ($end_date < $now) {
Updated content
<?php } else { ?>
Older content
<?php } ?>
