Forum Time Zone/ Time Offset
« on: February 21, 2012, 08:17:05 am »
Hi everyone,

Today when I logged in I realised as I posted that the timestamps were off by an hour, an hour earlier than my GMT+10 (No DST) timezone. Then I just went to my forum profile settings. I had 14 entered in as my Time Offset, which I had set quite a while ago as the correct time. I pressed the auto-detect button and my suspicions were confirmed. It changed to 15. I wonder why this is so? Did something happen to the default forum time?

The only thing I can think of is that SMF didn't properly handle the DST conversion on the server.

Also the time seems off by 5 minutes. :P
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Ah But in Queensland there is no DST all year around, so that's not the problem

And I think I did notice the 5mins too. Cuz I posted this at 8:13am, it says 8:08am

Btw if the time is reconfigured, make it so that if I'm GMT+10 then I can put in 10 as the Time Offset. Likewise GMT-5 = -5 offset.

Wonder for now if you can put 15 1/12 hours offset

W8 I didn't really check properly if there was that 5min offset still there.
Edit, looks like it's about 4 1/2m and it's still there.

Hmm after the 16 hour downtime looks like the offset has changed back 6 hours so when I had 14 for offset, now just 8 works (this is UTC+10)

Looks like darl181 has a problem with the "Today" "yesterday" labelling on posts. They are not showing up for him. Come on and say something!

About that...posts made after the downtime have the word, but others don't:
(notice the highlighted date and day of week, today is Thursday the 12th)

I guess maybe once everything is solved, netham45 should recount the post stats since the downtimes started and decrement the post dates of each message so it's in sync with the rest.

Possibly why I didn't have that problem was because I set the forum time to GMT+10 so maybe it was the next day already for me!
Did clearing cookies/cache or anything do any good?

Idk, now it's acting weird 0.o
Reply #8, from Thursday, is labeled as "Yesterday."
Looking at action=stats it seems like the forums know what day it is, the number of posts next to 2012-04-14 is increasing..

By the way did you guys have to setup your offset even higher or did it just reset back to zero after the server downtime?
