seems i cant get my board to show the correct time, early this morning we in the UK moved our clocks forward by 1 hour and my board is set to [UTC] Western European Time, Greenwich Mean Time. the time still shows as 1 hour behind
when i enable the summertime option it doesnt make any difference to the time also do i need to keep enabling it each year whe clocks go forward and disable it for whe they go back each year? thanks
Every user needs to turn DST off and on for themself (in their own UCP) each time it changes.
Most boards cater to an international audience, so it's not appropriate to move everyone off and onto DST at the same time.
Changes you make in the ACP only affect guests (and non-logged in members).
ahhhhh stupid me, i never thought to adjust the time in my UCP
which is the best option to have set in the ACP under Enable Summer Time/DST: ? should i leave it ticked as no or yes and should i leave that set all the time? thanks
It's up to you.
If you are catering to an internaitonal crowd, just setting it to UTC with no DST would be easiest.
If most of your members are from one timezone, you may wish to set that as the default, and turn DST off and on as appropriate.
