PHP Question

get next and previous day with php

ive got 2 arrows set up, click for next day, next 2 days, soon and previous day, 2 days ago, soon. the code seem not working? as it only get 1 next and previous day.

<a href="home.php?date=<?= date('Y-m-d', strtotime('-1 day', strtotime($date))) ?>" class="prev_day" title="Previous Day" ></a>
<a href="home.php?date=<?= date('Y-m-d', strtotime('+1 day', strtotime($date))) ?>" class="next_day" title="Next Day" ></a>

is there a way if i click the next button, the date will continously change for the next day. for a moment it will only get 1 day ahead

date('Y-m-d', strtotime('+1 day', strtotime($date)))

Should read

date('Y-m-d', strtotime(' +1 day'))

Update to answer question asked in comment about continuously changing the date.

$date = isset($_GET['date']) ? $_GET['date'] : date('Y-m-d');
$prev_date = date('Y-m-d', strtotime($date .' -1 day'));
$next_date = date('Y-m-d', strtotime($date .' +1 day'));

<a href="?date=<?=$prev_date;?>">Previous</a>
<a href="?date=<?=$next_date;?>">Next</a>

This will increase and decrease the date by one from the date you are on at the time.
