strtotime($_POST['datepicker']) should return a valid timestamp I think. I would check it though.

Easy way to check:

// Both should echo the same thing
echo $_POST['datepicker']."\n";
echo date("d/m/Y", strtotime($_POST['datepicker']));

Ahh, that worked, thank you :)

No problem :). The manual has a full list of time/date formats strtotime will accept, just as an FYI :)
