Can anyone help me? We recently moved the forum onto a new dedicated server....I received a request from one of my mods...
He says:

"Can you please set the time on the forum server? It is currently sent to "zero time" which is in England, so when we make a post the time shows that it was done 5 hours after the actual post was made in our own time..."

I switched something on the server and apparently it didn't work.

He replied:

"Unless it takes awhile to kick in, it is still off to me. If you go to your personal profile preferences it will show the server time. I just did it a second ago and this is what I got. There is an option for folks to change the time as it looks to them so if they are in a different time zone it will do the adjustment on their own viewing of the site. I hope that makes sense..."

All users have a "timezone offset" in their preferences; he can make his time anything he wants...

In fact, I recommend every forum set their server time to GMT and set their forum time off of that (CP -> Display Options -> General -> Date & Time Tab -> "Default Time Offset (Hours)) then have users offset accordingly.
