    First off this is PHP not jquery. Anyways, after a quick glimplse change
    PHP:
    //convert to time
        
    $lasttime=mktime(0,0,0,$_POST['datemonth'],$_POST['dateday'],$_POST['dateyear']);
    To:
    PHP:
    //convert to time
        
    $lasttime=mktime(0,0,0,$_POST['dateday'],$_POST['datemonths'],$_POST['dateyear']);
    In order to change the months you need to edit the $months array which is below:
    PHP:
    $months=array('','January','February','March','Apr  il','May','June','July','August',
        
    'September','October','November','December');
    I'm not a pro, but that should get the job done. I didn't look into it very much, so if it doesn't work let me know and I'll look further.

    The original posting moved, but to add something to mmslax's post:
    You can't change the order inside mktime, it creates a timestamp and the function needs this particular order of the input. :)
    All you achieve with changing the order inside mktime is a wrong timestamp.
