Hello,

How do you change the default time, which would be the time zone in which the server is located, to your local time zone?

I've looked for this setting in the backend, but couldn't find it, so I'm thinking that there is a file that must be modified.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Assuming you're on 1.5.0:

Configuration > Geeklog > Languages and Locale > Locale > Timezone

Or, on 1.4.1, search your config.php for "timezone".

bye, Dirk

Hello, Dirk

Found that:

// "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

Canged: // $_CONF['timezone'] = 'Etc/GMT-6'; // e.g. 6 hours behind GMT to +6 to try to get from PDT to EST. The time didn't match up, but it did change, and it's still showing PDT. How would I get it to show EST?

Thanks for your help.

Refer to the forum post from that comment for a handy list of timezones ...
