Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time

Postby Sigint » Wed May 26, 2010 10:54 am

The time shown on new posts is one hour ahead of time. In other words, a message posted at 09:55 shows up as being posted at 10:55.

The top of the page says "All times are UTC + 10 hours [ DST ]" but that is obviously not correct.

Go to "user control panel" at top right corner" then on the left hand side you will see "Board Preferences" click on that then look accross to the right, is "Summer Time/DST is in effect:" ticked?

Hi Sigint,

Thanks for letting me know. I've globally turned off Summer Time, but it seems that the individual user has to change it in their own CP (tried it myself).

Cheers.

I have found that all the phbb based forums that I have used have to have daylight savings adjusted by the user, I run a phbb ver 2.0.22 forum at work, I just checked it & only has time zone adjustment.

Just a general reminder... with the end of daylight savings time, don't forget to turn off the feature in your "User Control Panel/Board Preferences" or the post times will be out by an hour on the forum?

It's that time of year again!

Don't forget that the forum doesn't automatically adjust for daylight savings, you need to go into your "User Control Panel", select the "Board preferences" tab, and click on "Summer Time" = Yes

Well, unless you're lucky enough to live in a state that doesn't have it that is!
