Post's Date/Time Stamp is 2 hours early

Postby harrissimo » Wed Oct 29, 2008 8:31 am

The time of a post is two hours early than actual Madison time. I think this issue has been discussed before. But isn't there anyway to convert the time to the correct Madison time. Perhaps some javascript or a server side module that could display the correct time. It's not a big deal but it would be nice.

Just askin' - like I said this isn't a big deal to me.

I'm fine with the new forum lay out. It took me a day or so to get used to it so please do not take this post as an insult or attack ok?

Did you actually post this at 8:31 am? 'Cause it is showing up fine here.
Check in the User Control Panel to see if you have your date set for Central Time (-6:00 from GMT) and Daylight Saving Time or not. That should clear it up.

Thank you donges. That must be the problem. I appreciate your help.
