But, can you explain me how the ACP board time zone affect the forums dates ? Since you are in France, set you ACP Board time zine to +10, set your personnal time zone to anything but 0. (I presume that you have both currently set to 0). Log off, and look at the index page for your Forums... all th...

About this topic and this fix, I think: 1. Board's time zone in the ACP has NO effect on board times. It's just like Default Style, Default Language and Date Format, only a default preselection to help create new user's profile. To say that the ACP time zone for the board has NO affect on the board...

Is this project dead? The site http://www.m2f.netclectic.com/ no longer exists. There are many of us waiting to try this (M2F) out. If the project is still alive, would you please outline what the delays are? Perhaps some of us could help bring a resolution to some of these delays.

Regards,
TW

can someone explain very simply what this mod is supposed to do? Correctly interpret your time date stamps as being "Daylight/Summer" time date stamps. I've read the whole thread and while twmm keeps shouting I have not been shouting. THIS IS SHOUTING! ... he doesn't really explain very w...

The author of the mod has an unusual point of view (unusual in that it seems to be in the minority), and the mod has been written to reflect that point of view. The mod works... so long as you understand that it gives priority of the time according to the server over that of the time according to t...

@inque Regarding Who and where DST is observed in the US - See posting: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=621013#621013 Regarding the time zone of your forums: Go to your Admin Control Panel, Configuration Page. Then set your Board time zone to where in the world you are. You currently have...

Once more with feeling..... The timezones of your users are IRRELEVANT!!!! The timezone of your forum IS RELEVANT!!!! :lol: :lol: The intent is SOLELY to display the forum's time/date stamps correctly when your forum observes "Daylight/Summer" time. I think some find this issue complictaed...

It doesn't matter if you store data by calling it DST or not because it gets changed into an integer value that is the number of seconds since (usually) Jan 1, 1970. Zactly so... just different words for the same meaning... Except, the timezone of the stored values is 0... GMT (UT). So until you di...

It works for me but a little too much of "go back and fix" stuff. And Arizona are the only ones in the USA that do not use DST. First, there is nothing to go back and fix. The times recorded and stored in your database tables are GMT (UT) times. Second, you are incorrect in your statement...

If I understand it correctly, the code goes watch the server time to see if it's DST or not. If it is, it ads an hour to the date you see. And all users can still say in their profile what GMT they have. The times effected are the times posted, i.e. the forums times. If something was posted during ...

Won't this just invert the problem? So users NOT in places that observe daylight savings time wil lhave to adjust their timezones instead of those who are in places with DST? Once again.... this fix has nothing whatsoever to do with the timezone of the user!!! This fix is for the timezone of the fo...

Hello - I am not sure I understand your question; but perhaps, you misunderstand how this is used. I think if you follow the link (hopefully you have a grasp of php) to: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php you will come to understand that it is the server's knowledge of Daylight Savings T...
