Setting the forum time?
« on: April 25, 2016, 03:34:14 pm »
Does anyone know how to set my forum profile to display time as EST?

When I read posts it seems to display the time 7 hrs ahead, not convert to the reader's locality. It wasn't like that before.

Time on this post is being displayed to me as « on: Today at 07:34:14 pm »

7 hrs ahead. Actual time of this posting was 12:34pm EST.

Profile > Forum Profile   -- in the forum drop down menu bar
Then Modify Profile > Look and Layout

Second section down Time Offset
Try clicking autodetect - else enter the offset (it will be a negative number ie: -7)
