Ok this might seem trivial but since I try to be a perfectionist I'm gonna ask nevertheless. For some reason the time on my site is 1 hr ahead. Right now its 12:29 PM (minneapolis) and my site shows Saturday, January 07 2006 @ 01:26 PM EST. I guess its bcause Im in CST and my site is showing EST. Now, how do I change EST to CST?Razz thats all I want to know. I'm a noob who just made his 1st website and dont know a lot of stuff, simple as they are.
While I'm here I'm curious about another thing. What is that code bar above the subject bar (while typing posts) If i put my mouse over the bold button it shows 'Bold text: text (alt+b)' . and this is editable. I mean I can modify this or something?
thanks

What about How do I change the timezone?

Or config.php

Text Formatted Code

// "Timezone Hack"
// If your webserver is located in a different timezone than yourself but you
// prefer Geeklog to post stories in your local time, then set your local
// timezone here.
//
// Please note that this does not work when safe_mode is on!
//
// For more information, see this discussion on geeklog.net:
// http://www.geeklog.net/forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=21232
// $_CONF['timezone'] = 'Etc/GMT-6'; // e.g. 6 hours behind GMT

I, too, am in the Minneapolis time zone (North of St. Paul) but the GMT-6 doesn't work for me:

$_CONF['timezone'] = 'Etc/GMT-6';

The above gives me a time 12 hours into the future. The following gives me the correct time (removing the minus sign):

$_CONF['timezone'] = 'Etc/GMT6';

All times are EDT. The time is now 07:05 pm.
