Time Zone Problem

Post by ozace50 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 10:24 pm

I am running PHPBB3.0.4, and I have set the board to show time as UTC+10, which is the time zone for Eastern Australia. It shows the correct time when I arrive at the board. As soon as I login, the time changes to show UTC time.

It is now 0820 on Wednesday 11 February. The board shows "It is currently Tue Feb 10, 2009 10:20 pm"

I am running version of PHPBB3.0.2 on another website in a different time zone with no such problems. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

The Board timezone is only for guests.
You will have to set your own timezone in your User control panel.

Set the correct offset in your Board settings in the UCP, as this controls when you are logged in.

:oops: :oops: :oops: I had totally forgotten that I had to do that. Thank you both very much for reminding me. I am sorry that my aged memory let me down.
