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.
"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.
