    Just a website question.....

    Post by Angie baby on Sat 21 Mar 2015, 1:18 pm

    Dear Papa.

    What is the matter with the local time control on the site ?

    I notice that it seems to be just about twelve hours out of sinc' with Greenwich mean time.

    I am surprised that you have not noticed this by yourself.

    Hi Angie.

    That just happens to be a very good question.

    It's like this:

    There are two different timezones shown in places on the site.

    The first can only be changed by myself and is to do with the generic timezone for the website.

    This is not the one that matters to individual members.

    The second one is the member's "local" timezone and this differs because we have members from all over the world and the timezone must show as their local time on all of their pages.

    Here is how to change your local timezone:

    Go to your own profile, then go to "preferences". Then scroll down the page until you find the specific timezone in the drop-down menu. When you have found your own local time, ( for instance, Britain is shown as "London" and not GMT as one might expect ), just click on it and it will fill the local timezone box.

    You must then remember to click on the "save box" for that section.

    Afterwards you will find that the timezone will show correctly for your region at the bottom of every page.

    NB....

    Just to mention, that in this area you can change the format that you choose for displaying the date and time here also.

    Any further advice will be given - if asked for - if these instructions are not clear.

    Mine was wrong also, but I hadn't really noticed it until Angie mentioned it.

    I have now fixed it using your direction Paps.

    I am sorry for taking it for granted that you all knew about this special Date-time fix.
