Clock on here
 
I just noticed that when I post my messages the time is not correct for my time zone. Is there some way to set that myself or is that a server problem?

Amber, the clock is set to Geenwich Mean Time, minus 5 hours, which equates to U.S. central time. You can calculate your time from that.

Yes but how do I change the time on my posts to agree with greenich mean time minus 5? Not sure if the time is messed up since we changed our clocks ahead earlier this year than usual? Time in the eastern U.S. is now 9:45, but the clock will reflect one hour earlier I think.

Yep, it does

You can't change your clock, Amber. It's the way this site is set up. The best you can do is to, for your purposes, figure out what time it is when you look at posts.

For example, when someone on the east coast of the United States posts something, I have to subtract an hour because I live in the central time zone. You will have to calculate times for the zone you live in.

Click on User CP then select edit options

Scroll down to date and time options and check the settings. You can change them there to suit your time zone.

Thanks, Andy. I thought the times were set in stone. I stand corrected.

amber 03-14-2007 10:11 PM

Thanks Andy, I knew there was a way to set the time, however, the time is set correctly to gmt-5, however, I dont think the server has caught up with the time change. Thanks Katie :smile:

Did you set your options to automatically detect daylight savings time?

You may have to log off and log back on again.

Yes, it is set to automatically detect DST.

Still says it's one hour earlier than it actually is here.

Are you looking at the time stamp that appears on each post, next to the 'Today'?


All times are GMT -5. The time now is 06:35 PM.
