  • Daylight saving

    My forum's default time zone is set to (eastern GMT -4) and due to day light saving, it's currently still 1 hour forward.
    How can I fix it?

    vBulletin gets its time from the server. You need to set the timezone in the Admin CP to whatever you want the default to be and the DST settings should match whatever settings are on the server.

    Then each user needs to set their local timezones/DST in the User CP. If you do this correctly and the server time is correct, then the correct times will show.

    This also assumes that you have not modified the footer template to affect the DST detection code in it or installed any modification that broke this.

      What am I suppose to modified in the footer to affect the DST detection code?

        You shouldn't have to change anything. The default footer works fine, assuming you have the correct settings elsewhere.
