I can't seem to get my time to show up correctly. I'm Pacific Standard Time (west coast us) which should be GMT -8 but... it's never right for me.  And, if I do manage to get it corrected, will other people's posts show up in my time or in theirs?


You can change forum time through your profile (Look and Layout > Time offset). Unless you do so, everything shows in server time, which is GMT-6.

After adjustment, all timestamps appear according to your own time settings.
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.

I do have my time set at GMT -8 and the time is shows on my post is like ... 6:20 am, when it's actually 12:20 pm here.


Oh wait - I changed it to GMT-2, to adjust for the base timezone the forum is in and I think I've got the correct time now.

ETA: that's correct.  That isn't very clear on the layout - that you need to adjust to inlude the forum base time.


Just went to look at this myself, and it doesn't actually say 'GMT-2' - it specifies 'offset' and gives what the current server time is as a guideline.  I also just noticed an 'autodetect' link next to the input box, which also worked nicely.

If at first you don't succeed keep changing the number until it works?


I assumed offset from GMT 0, which has been usual in other forums I've been on (since, for example, I had no idea what timezone the forum is based in).  When it auto-detected, it did give me -2 but I (also incorrectly) assumed that when I saved the change it would should the accurate time in the example near the box - but that's a fixed example that just shows how the format would look, not the actual time.

It seems there are several methods sites use for setting time and if you have a suggestion, since our owner is working on new programming you could include that in the Feature Request Thread.

We love hearing your ideas. :-)
