# Determine The First Monday Timestamp After a Weekend

After a comment from a user on a post we shared detailing new Instagratify features, we wrote up this quick function to see how his suggestion might be applied. When scheduling from Instagram, he didn't want to share posts on a weekend - instead posting on the next Monday at a certain time.

The function below will assess a timestamp to determine if it falls on a Saturday or Sunday and, if it does, determine the timestamp of the following Monday (at a certain time).

function beliefmedia_next_monday(\$timestamp, \$time = '10am') {
8

9
\$day = date('N', \$timestamp);
10
\$timestamp = (\$day == 6 || \$day == 7) ? strtotime("next monday \$time", \$timestamp) : \$timestamp;
11

12
return \$timestamp;
13
}

Usage is as follows:

1
<?php
2
\$timestamp = '1511010605';
3
echo beliefmedia_next_monday(\$timestamp, \$time = '10am');
