How to adjust the forum time to match your time zone

Back to Forum Help index


The forum time is set to GMT or BST (London GMT) depending on the time of year.

If you live in a different time zone then the time on the forum will be different to your own. Each member can easily adjust this to match the time in their time zone.

1) Click on "Profile" on the top menu. Then under "Modify Profile" in the left hand column choose "Look and Layout"



2) Then locate the "Time Offset" field (see bottom of image above)

If you click on "Auto detect" then the site will try to determine where you are in the world. If not, add a figure such as -4 or +4 for a four hour time difference. Obviously this will depend on where you are located in the world.

For somewhere like California USA it'll need to be something like -8

For somewhere like New York USA it'll need to be something like -5

For somewhere like Athens, Greece it'll need to be something like +2

The above are approximations as it depends on the time of year.
