I am trying to do something very simple - I want a var in a custom shipment notification that takes the current date and adds 8 days to it (In order to provide an estimated date of delivery).
The PHP is ridiculously simple for that :
$date = new DateTime();
echo date_format($date, "Y-m-d");
So it kinda feels like going to all the trouble of adding the xml and the extra files would be like killing a mosquito with a sledgehammer. Is there a way to somehow put that in either the email PHTML or a custom variable so that I can just use it in the email text?
