Time as Displayed?

Post by Ads677 » Mon Jan 21, 2013 10:58 am

Just noticed that, according to the top of the page, the time shown was an hour ahead of the real time. Checked in the usual place and I had the GMT option selected! Changed to 'Azores' and now it's the correct time!!

Anyone else have this problem?

Below the time zone setting, do you have the 'Summer Time / DST in effect' setting set to yes? If so, reset it to no and reset your time zone setting to GMT.
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

Let us wait and see if the problem is solved before dishing out the thanks. :smt002

Aha! Didn't notice the BST bit, doh!

Now sorted, thanks BJ, but it occurs to me that other forums (fora?) seem to cope with time changes automatically, so is there any reason why we have to do it manually?

I am not sure, but we do have people posting from other time zones around the world so it may be easier for each user to select their time zone. that's certainly the way they do it on several other (non rugby) messageboards I use.
