Quick way to get the number of days in a month with PHP

PHP & MySQL Tutorials

    I’m building a php calendar and need to know the total number of days in a month in the past I've used: 

    echo cal_days_in_month(CAL_GREGORIAN, 2, 2017);

    For the current month you can use:

    echo date('t');

    Or for a more a date based approach:

    echo date('t', strtotime('2017-02-01'));
