  • Time Question

    I've set the time for the board to -5 Eastern and it is still showing GMT. How do I go about make the time accurate.

    Note, the board will always show GMT time when you aren't logged in.

    You need to set the timezone in the Admin CP to match the timezone of the server your forums are running on. Then each user needs to set their local timezones in the User CP.

      Ok that was pretty dense of me. One more question. If I set the time to Pacific Time is it supposed to say "All times are GMT -8 hours. The time now is 06:56 PM. "? I would think that it should say Pacific Time. GMT -8 just doesn’t seem too intuitive. Thanks in advance. Jake

        Yep, that's exactly what it's supposed to say by default. Of course the '-8 hours' changes depending on the user's timezone setting.
