    Thanks everyone. Rep added.

    How about this:

    
    		$Now = time();
                    $Duration = 60*60;
    		
    		foreach ($posts as $post) {
    			if ($x_news_active && $x_permission != 2) {
    				$postDate = strtotime($post->post_date);
    				if ($Now - $postDate < $Duration) {
    					$x_execute_this .= "
    ...

    if the current time minus post time is < than an hour, do the following;
