  • Time issue

    I have a time issue, I have set my server time to my time zone and VB is set to my time zone which is UTC-7 MST Mountain Standard Time.

    only users that live in that time zone has the correct time stamp when posting.

    We have been working on this for a long time and need to get this resolved, is there anything that I could have overlooked?

    Users need to set the forum time correctly in their User CP. If they don't, then they probably see everything as being on the server time.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

        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.

              Post #4 has all the possible explanations for this. vB gets its time from the server. It does not just make it up.

                Actually, Steve, I found there is one other thing that can change the time - a modification. This happened to me on my site - once I uninstalled the modification, time was fixed for me.

                  You're right of course. A mod can change anything, although this is the first one I've heard of that can cause a problem with the time. Thanks for the info.
