WP_Date_Query::build_mysql_datetime( string|array $datetime, bool $default_to_max = false ): string|false

Builds a MySQL format date/time based on some query parameters.

Description

You can pass an array of values (year, month, etc.) with missing parameter values being defaulted to either the maximum or minimum values (controlled by the $default_to parameter). Alternatively you can pass a string that will be passed to date_create().

Parameters

$datetimestring|arrayrequired
An array of parameters or a strotime() string.
$default_to_maxbooloptional
Whether to round up incomplete dates. Supported by values of $datetime that are arrays, or string values that are a subset of MySQL date format ('Y', 'Y-m', 'Y-m-d', ‘Y-m-d H:i’).
Default: false.

Default:false

Return

string|false A MySQL format date/time or false on failure.
