Dear members !

We are very happy to announce an update of the timezone management on Forumotion forums.


The timezone settings are much more precise now :  you can be sure that  the forum will show the right time according to your location.
However, you will see, as the choice of locations is much larger than it was before, you and your members have to make some little adjustments.


It is important to choose a Timezone which corresponds most closely to your geographical location.  

Don’t forget, there are 2 different Timezone settings to consider on your forum:

  • The forum's default Timezone


  • The personal Timezone in the profile of the user


So, if you are the founder of the forum you have to check both of them.  The members of your forum have to adjust the second one, in their profiles.


1. Forum Timezone

This is the Timezone set by default in members profiles. It's also the Timezone used when non-registered users see the forum.

Admin panel >> General >> Forum >> Configuration

New timezone management Timezo10



2. Personal Timezone
When you are logged in, click on "Profile" on the top of your forum
New timezone management 118

Click on "Preferences" tab, just above the frame.
click here to see the picture:

Go down and stop just before the Save button and choose the Timezone according to your country/area

I had a time issue as well, but later on it fixed by itself. It was one hour ahead for me, New York time.

Would it be possible to make system timezone default for all the users? Right now it is Abidjan (UTC +00:00) and it means, that all users have wrong time unless they change it.

No sorry all your members will have to change it make a news letter or a thread on your forum telling them there was a system update and the members will have to update there profile.

Also note that when you change the board make sure to resynchronize your forum for the change to be made faster.

If the change on your profile has not changed please clear your browser cache to speed things up a little.

as it says all the old system was removed and it was updated so all timezones are set at default system time so all members must change this  in there profiles and the admins have to change the forum times in the ACP there is no other way to do this.

Sorry

The time that set as default was +10. We should change it from the Admin Panel and inform members to change it from their profiles! Thanks for the warning! Saw it just on time! Smile

The default is the one you set in the administration panel.

I think he meant more like we force the default time like how the update did to us.

There was a problem with the old system and it come out that there was lots of bugs so we made a new system that was put in place to fix the bugs.
There is no going back to the old system as it's now been removed from our database.

Any Admin that have ACP rights can change this in the ACP and all members can change there profiles by them self.

To everyone:  This was an update that effected every forum's timezone management which means you have to change it in the administration panel and every member has to change it in their profiles.  You need to pick the nearest city to your location.

bwi bwi bwi 

The List is much too long. We in Europa have only three timezones (but 25 countries have the UTC + 1:00) it is not necessary to list every capital of the 25 countries.

BUT: CAN YOU PLEASE translate the names of the capitals in the board language? (respectively to the profile language)

The language names are translated into its language.

For example, Albanian is stated as Shqip, which means Albanian language in albanian.
