if custom field is older than date next week (2 posts)

    I'm trying to find a way to query on single.php if a post custom field (a date) is greater than a date 7 days in the future.

    $date1 = get_post_meta($post->ID, '_timestamp', true);
    $date2 = date('YmdHi', strtotime($date .' +7 day'));
    if ( $date1 > $date2 ) { ?>

    The idea is to be able to filter those posts coming up in the new 7 days and those that are not. Custom field _timestamp outputs the date as YmdHi, so I've done the same with the date function.

    Something doesn't seem to be right though, and I'd appreciate any help with this.

    Try this...

    $date2 = date('YmdHi', strtotime('+7 day', $date));
