Time listed for postings on this website

Post by UPWomenSoccerRookie on Sun Aug 10, 2008 8:20 pm

There is a time frame when a posting on this site has one time listed, then another when the time shifts 1 hour. I notice the shift in the evenings. A post may be listed as 7:15 PM for a length of time, then it the post time changes by 1 hour, so it is either 6:15 PM or 8:15 PM. There is only a single hour shift; which way the time shifts depends on when in the sequence I observe it. It affects ALL postings, but I usually notice it on the menu page for the lastest posting. I generally only visit the women's soccer page, so that is where I notice it.

It appears that the clock for the site makes a shift for a few hours, then returns to the proper time.

I thought this was bug that would eventually get fixed, but it i still occurring.

Certainly I am not the only one who has noticed this, am I.

Thanks.

Oh, you aren't the only one. If you look at the countdown timer at the end of this post, it is usually off by a couple hours. It too is dependent on the forum clock, the computer clock, daylight saving, and the time zone the server is in. I tried adjusting it to be right, but eventually gave up because of the issue you outline.

thats why I just have it tracking game day. I figured when we got that close, everyone would know when game time was.

I think I actually know what the problem is. The standard time zone for the website is set up for Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) right now. So if you go to the site as a guest without being logged in, it will show the correct time.

However, each person can change their preferences once they log in to show a different time zone. That way someone living on the East Coast or in England or wherever can set it to have the times show in their own time zone.

My guess is that UPWomenSoccerRookie has his preferences set to Pacific Standard Time (PST) instead of PDT, which would account for the one hour difference. And it appears to change sometimes because depending on how long it's been since you've visited the site, which computer you are using, etc. he may not always be automatically logged in. Does that make sense? When logged in the time shows up as one thing, when not logged in it shows up as another.

UPWSR - log in and click on the "Profile" button along the top. Then click on "Preferences" from there, which is also along the top. Then scroll down and change your time zone to the current correct time. That *should* solve the problem.

The site still seems to have a mind of its own when we switch from Daylight to Standard time, and back... that is the part I cant seem to find out how to fix.

Stonehouse is correct on the individual settings part.

Yeah, the weirdest part is that the time offset seems to change in the evening.
