How To: Adjust your Time Settings when the clocks change

Postby thon » Sat Feb 13, 2016 5:09 pm

Why does the forum time show as 1 hour out?

When the clocks change, the forum time unfortunately does not change automatically. A forum Admin will change the board's Global Time Settings, but this only applies to logged-out users, and assumes that we are all in the UK.

Once you are logged in, your own personal timezone settings apply - including whether Summer Time is in effect, or not. Therefore, you'll need to change your own settings when the clocks change.

To enable Summer Time:

  1. Open Board Preferences in your User Profile
  2. Set Summer Time/DST is in effect to 'Yes', and hit Submit

To disable Summer Time:

  1. Open Board Preferences in your User Profile
  2. Set Summer Time/DST is in effect to 'No', and hit Submit
