Vernal Equinox

For those of you who rely on your computer or phone to change the time back for you, PLEASE remember this forum doesn't do it for you. You will, now be 1 hour ahead unless you change the time zone in your preferences.
Happens every year...........sometimes twice

OH goodness. CP has gone away. How do you change things in your profile like time zones?

Larry, are you still having that issue?
I don't remember when but that's been fixed for awhile. I haven't reset my forum time zone in quite awhile. You might try clearing your cache as that seems to fix a lot of the problems with the recent upgrade.

Thanks Vic. Thought I had lost something. Yeah, Mark, my computer shows 7:52 PM and the forum (at the bottom and on all posts) is showing 8:52 pm. Always has. I have to set my time zone from -5 GMT to -6 GMT in the fall and back again in the spring. I'll try the cache thingy, but I dump it pretty regularly. I'll let you know.

When I'm logged in the time is okay and has been for quite some time. If I am not logged in the time is off by an hour.

I know you don't want to hear this, but the problem is probably with your computer because I'm pretty sure you're the only one having this problem. That time issue has been fixed for a long time now.

It's not that I don't want to hear it, but it is happening. Last year it was on another computer. This year it is a new computer, so that theory is out with the trash. Just for fun, someone go their general settings and see if the time zone their settings are at, match their actual time zone. I have to move my time zone to Central time zone (-6), and I am in the Eastern zone (-5). Could be the water.

My profile setting is Pacific time, DST detection in auto. Actual time and forum time within one minute when logged in but off one hour when not logged in. Been this way for at least a full year, maybe longer.

Hmmm

Wonder why the DIY also has a DST on/off option? Don't most programs get their info from the PC time?

Maybe so the correct local time of the post shows up everywhere?

I suspect the forum servers are time-controlled to GMT and then the individual profiles are modified from GMT. Why Chandler is having so much trouble is above my pay scale.

This post was made at 1:07 Pacific Standard Time and shows on my computer as being posted at 1:07 PM

Something must be contagious...now I'm getting the not logged in thing which I never experienced before. Not when I click on a thread (that shows I'm logged in)...but when I do a "Todays Posts".

Odd odd odd

I've always had and continue to have the DST problem. I had to go in and change the setting for the correct forum time. I've tried auto detect and it doesn't work. I just manually change DST always on or off manually.

Not sure what I am supposed to see in that post. Just tells me where to find the settings. I know where they are.

Sorry...I think thats when I was having issues with the log-in. Your name was last on the "recent posts" but I read someone elses actual post when I looked at the thread, cause they weren't in the order I have my preferences set to. So I replied to their post but used your name.

Ignore that man behind the curtain...lol.
