What is the locale setting (e.g. en-gb)?

Geeklog relies on the server and on PHP for all the time/date related information and functions - there isn't anything in Geeklog that you could tweak.

PST should be UTC-8. Using "PST" as the timezone should also work, actually. If that still gives you odd results, try talking to your hosting service.

I went back into config.php and lib-common and changed it to both "PST" and also tried "UTC-8" and nothing changed at all... Still says GMT-6 on the event.

I have 2 questions... What should I have it set for in the configuration area if I'm using the hack? Should I disable it in the languages & locales area or put something there? Also, where should lib-common.php be? Is it in the root directory or somewhere in a folder?

Thanks

I'm confused now. config.php? That's not used any more, so of course changes there won't make a difference.

Also, there is only one lib-common.php and it already has the necessary code built in.

The Timezone entry under "Languages and Locale" in the Configuration is the replacement of the old config.php entry.

Ahhhhh, got it... My config.php did have that timezone hack area on it. That's why I was confused. I copied lip-common.php once to another area. Is that file supposed to be in the layout area or in the root directory?

Thanks!

Root directory (where the layout directory is, but not inside of the layout directory).

Thanks... After I changed lib-common.php and the languages and locales timezone setting to "US/Pacific" it changed it to PDT.

With that over, I'll get back to the original question:
The example in config.html is names of months. But aren't those hardcoded within each language file's $LANG_MONTH?
