I found a facebook like date system and have a little thing i wanna have fixed.

Hi everyone, So i found a facebook like time system for a cms i'm making, so when ever i upload a post it says 'Posted 5 seconds ago' after some time '5 minutes and 3 seconds' and etc. But the thing is i'm from Denmark, and we have a little bit different looking time system. and i don't really know how to add a extra $retval i made cause it just looks weird when i do it.

The code:



// DISPLAYS COMMENT POST TIME AS "1 year, 1 week ago" or "5 minutes, 7 seconds ago", etc... function time_ago($date,$granularity=2) { $date = strtotime($date); $difference = time() - $date; $periods = array('decade' => 315360000, 'år' => 31536000, 'måned' => 2628000, 'uge' => 604800, 'dag' => 86400, 'tim' => 3600, 'minut' => 60, 'sekund' => 1); foreach ($periods as $key => $value) { if ($difference >= $value) { $time = floor($difference/$value); $difference %= $value; $retval .= ($retval ? ' og ' : '').$time.' '; $retval .= (($time > 1) ? $key.'er' : $key); $granularity--; } if ($granularity == '0') { break; } } return ' Lagt op for '.$retval.' siden.'; }

i tried to make a extra $retval as i said that looks like this:


$retval .= (($time < 1) ? $key.'e' : $key); // Because i only want's to show e when it's under more days but it just looks weird. really weird..
