Re: [RFC] Local time handling by Javascript

The Javaranch forum started ti use something like this.
It is great.
I don't even have to log in and I have all times in my zone (and format).

Re: [RFC]Automatic daylight detection

Hmm, maybe here is a misunderstanding.

I (the user) set "[UTC + 1] Central European Time, West African Time" and "Summer Time/DST is in effect" to Yes.

Which is correct. I am in EU (CET time zone) and DST is (as of today) in effect.
So there is no error on the part of the user.

Re: [RFC]Automatic daylight detection

OK more info. The post [RFC] Local time handling by Javascript suggests that that manual DST switch would not be required any more in 3.1. But 3.1 Status does not list any related change. (at least I did not spot it) Also reading http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=463930 I learned, that ...

[RFC]Automatic daylight detection

Hi! Today was the day they(we) moved the clock forward one hour (DST) in Europe. Or better, today is the day I will spend correcting all the clocks I encounter. One of them is the clock setting in phpBB based forums (user control panel). Like this one here at area51.phpbb.com. (I could not figure ou...

Re: [RFC] Local time handling by Javascript

I'm just a forum user, but want to voice my support for this. With date/time output using JavaScript toLocaleString (or similar) both time format and timezone/DST will be correct for majority of users, without any manual settings from their side, or even the requirement of registration or login.

[RFC|Superseded] Notification mail links without forced login

(prologue here : http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=99&t=35034 *) Currently the link URL in the notification email to the new posts in a thread requires a login, so the forum SW knows the user visited the thread and decides to send new notification on future new posts. I suggest detecting...

Re: Notification mail links

Ah, I see the reason now.

But it can still be done without login.

Similar to the registration confirmation email:
The link can have a codeword/number, that is unique and the server would know that the user is visiting the thread from an email notification.
