I like this mod. It would have solved me some problems a while ago. I had to modify the database directly.

Thanks for developing it.
My first validated mod!

The DST has been switched a while ago in our country. It was too late to use this mod, but now it is at least available for the next DST switch.

I really can't see the need of a such modification, but I am open to get the point.
Would you mind to explain where and how that stuff will becomes necessary?

Thanks. :)

It was requested on the german support forums. Germany only has one timezone, users are lazy and there is currenty no option in phpBB allowing to switch DST on/off (for example) for every user or allowing the user to always use the boards defaults.

Regards.

Apologize.

So are there further devs about this MOD?
Did you read my above question?
Are you somehow implementing new feature/s we could get in touch of?

I'm interested because I'll use this code, indeed.

Regards. :)

No problem.

No. I'm the only developer at the moment.
3Di wrote:Did you read my above question?
Woops., sorry I missed it. Just read it, but I don't understand what you mean / you're referring to.
3Di wrote:Are you somehow implementing new feature/s we could get in touch of?
The planned features are listed above, but currently I have a lot of other stuff with higher priority. At the moment it is not planned to add futher developers to such a small modification, but feel free to use/change etc. the code to your own needs. Not that much has been changed against the original phpBB code. ;)
