Forum clock?

Post by sirch345 » Tue Oct 18, 2016 7:11 pm

Does anyone know why, when I submit a post the time I posted it is correct. After logging out the time then changes to one hour earlier :?:

These are my settings in the "User Control Panel"

:lol: :lol: :lol:

It a time travelling device that you have entered. :biggrin Sorry no idea. Mine was 1hour early but I just switched on the Summertime in effect in my prefs and it has changed to the correct time now. I then logged out and back in to check and it stayed the same. Try disabling that, log out and back in and then re-enable it. It may reset itself.

Does that mean I can recapture 365 hours (366 on a leap year :wink: ) every year :lol:
Thanks for checking it out Carl :thumbup:

I can't seem to change any of the settings I've shown above, as when I hit "Submit" the changes I've made just revert back to what I originally had :crazy:

Perhaps I better try using my Edge browser :shh:

**EDIT**
Using Edge didn't make any difference, although I have managed to try different settings now.

Out of interest what are you guys seeing as the time I posted this post :?: It shows 12:26 pm whilst I'm still logged in,

12:26 here too which is even more weird because it should be as is what is set in my control panel which is diffrent from what you have. I wonder how the forum is picking up the time...whether it's using PHP or javascript. Then again why is it only affecting you. Maybe there's is something overriding your account on the admin side. It's obviously account related. You should be able to change it in the control panel. Can you flush the cache for specific accounts.

If I'm reading this, it's correct when you log back in, yes? It's only when you're logged out? In that case, the forum is probably defaulting to UTC when you log out, I'm going to try now and see.

Cheers Carl for your thoughts :thumbup:
I think Bald_pig may be on to something.

Good thinking, and yes you are reading it correctly. If that's what it is, then when British Summer Times finishes the time should then be correct. Lets see what happens on the 30th of this month :eh:
