  • Why is my forum's time off by X hours?

    You as admin need to set the time in two places to ensure all times appear correctly on your board.
    First, go to Admin CP > Options and set your server location's offset from GMT.
    Second, go to User CP > Edit Options and set your location's offset from GMT.

    Keep in mind that GMT never goes on Daylight Savings Time (DST), and vBulletin does not take DST into account. Therefore, if your locale (or your server's locale) is currently on daylight savings time, you will need to adjust the time in your User CP by one hour, either forward or backwards depending on where you are.

    Also keep in mind guests will always see GMT no matter what.

    I've changed the default time from GMT to AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) by altering one of the templates. Seems to work OK.
