10 January 2021

In the code snippet, we want to convert our date string '10-01-2021' to '10 January 2021'. To do this we use strtotime() method of PHP to convert the date string and then pass its value to the PHP date() function.

You can change 'd F Y' value according to your requirement. Like if you only want month name and year you can use

    echo date('F Y', $full_date);
    //PRINTS- January 2021
    $d = date_create('DATE_STRING'); 
    echo date_format($d,"F j\, Y"); 

    // -> March 10, 2022
You can also use the above PHP code example to convert a Date String to the Format - "Month_Name Date, Year" format.
