My visitors and users come back several times daily and I need to provide them a way of knowing that new jobs have been posted in a category...
I am looking to display a "new item" notification on main.php for the categories and sub categories, that looks like the attachment (see attachment)
I have searched and searched and searched and cannot come up to any conclusion.
I know it has something to do with DAO, I can do the styling I just basically need the number to appear showing the number of new items posted in any category in the last 12 hours.
So, for example:
- Category Sub (+3 new) **shows if 3 new jobs (listing) have been posted in the last 12 hours, based on server time
- Category Sub
Category Sun (+1 new) **shows if 1 new job (listing) has been posted in the last 12 hours, based on server time
Can someone please help me?
