    I'm presuming that iRO's server is set for PST.

    1. Define the variable:
    AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Add New Plugin:
    Product = vBulletin
    Hook Location: Global_Start
    Name: Standard Time
    PHP Code: $server_time = date('h:i:s A');
    Active? Yes

Views:	1
Size:	96.6 KB
ID:	3680663

    2. Insert the variable into a template:
    Bring up the Footer template for the selected style. Locate the first </div>, which is on line 5, then add this code just before it:
    <br />The server time is now {$server_time}.

    The forum administrator can then tweak the code in the plugin to output the desired time format. It's the standard PHP date() function.

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at

    Custom time phrase

    I am looking to display an extra time phrase down on the bottom of the forum listing, the current phrase looks like this:

    All times are GMT{1}. The time now is <span class="time">{2}</span>.

    If I wanted to show the current time in PST to any user, how would I do this? I've searched all over and can't find any clues!
