Time zones in profiles

Post by myforum on February 1st 2013, 8:57 am

So when you register to the forum it doesn't ask you to pick your time zone.
The only place you select it is in the admin panel for the forum and after you register you can go to you profile setting section per user acct...

What I have noticed is that some profiles after they register to the forum the forum selects a different time zone than the one set for the forum but I know for a fact that the users are are from the same time zone.

Then the events on the calendar and times are off.

My question is why is this happening? and is there a way to fix this?

I would suggest that your members are changing there time-zone in there profiles. The forum will set the time-zone to the default time-zone you have set in the admin panel for all new registrations, so if there time-zone is different than what your default time-zone is then they changed it themselves in there profile. The forum does not automatically set it to there timezone based on there IP address because the IPs of members does not always reflect the accurate time-zone of the person using that IP, so the forum is designed not to do that and let the member set it themselves in there profiles.

Okay if that is the answer then great at least now I know it is not on my end.
Thank you. If you are 100% sure then we can close the topic. Unless anyone else has any other feedback on the topic?

If members does not set their time zone, it is set to the default forum time zone.

And default time zone would be the forum time zone that you set-up in the general - config tab, is that correct?
