What time is it?

Don't know about anyone else, but the times on posts in the forums are wrong by an hour.

Just realised this needs to be changed manually (or at least in my case).
Can't it update automatically or is it a limitation on phpBB?

Also I'm going to move this to Everything Internet as it is nolonger a support related post....

So it does...

Maybe it is still a bit if a support issue - at least to remind everyone to do it & show them where.

[Click "Profile" at the top of the page, then scroll down to the bottom of your profile. Set to GMT]

I must admit I hadn't given it a thought - spoiled by Windows - not often you can say that. :roll:

Seems to be a limitation of PHPBB from what I can tell - certainly I've had to change it on other boards as well.

E-mail times wrong too?

...and I've only just noticed that my emails show that they are being sent an hour earlier - my machine has the right (GMT) time so where's the error?

Thanks

It must reside in your own system.

Depending on your software, the send and receive times should be dependant on two header items.

The send time is obtained using the Date header. This is injected into the headers by the client sending the message.

Thus, the sent time is pretty much allways based on that.

The received time, it either obtained by the time that the client actualy downloaded the message, or by looking at the top most Received header.

Thanks - I'll get investigating where it could be here Sad

Philip,

I've been looking a bit more and wonder if it is really at my end - here's the header of the email from PlusNet (telling me you'd replied) which shows the same error?

Your original message was a little misleading.

This sugests e-mails you are sending are the incorrect tiem.

The problem you have shown is that the internal clocks of the portal servers are incorrect.

This has plagued PlusNet for a long time now, and I have complained on more than one occasion.

This is caused by the timezone settings being wrong, thus NTP requests set the system time incorrectly.

The e-mail in general as anoying, as some systems show times in UTC, and others working in BST (UTC, with the +0100 marker added).

It makes the dates harder to read.

Sorry Philip - sent times are showing wrongly by an hour too! I'm now getting even more muddled - I think FireTrust Benign which checks the stuff on the way in to me is doing something odd (since the end of BST) so I've asked them for advice.

Thanks for your advice,
Tim
