Board clock

Post by Roller »

Post are showing up on my screen as if they were posted an hour later than they actually were. Is anybody else noticing the same thing?

I checked the settings for the board, and they seem to be correct (CST for the board and EST for me), so I'm not sure if there is some other setting that needs to be adjusted for Daylight Savings.

Every time the clocks change I just go into the user panel and change my time zone until it matches the time that it should be.

If you go into the user control panel and make sure you are in the Eastern Time Zone, Roller, or whatever the case may be for everyone else...and change the DST to no for now, it should reflect current time properly.

Thanks, TUPF! That works. Silly me didn't think to check the User settings,

It really ought to be a global setting (and, in this day and age, automatic!) for that. And there is one in the Administration Control Panel (were all the board features and permissions are controlled)--I changed that one, but it didn't seem to have an effect.

So everyone needs to adjust their own. Good to know.

Do you think that in 1955 there was as much discussion about Marty & Doc's visit as there was in 2015?
