French Time

Post by Ride_on » 19 Dec 2013 02:38 am

Is the English side of the web side stuck on French Time? I've just noticed the index page shows the time and its an hour later.

User control panel > Board preferences > Edit global settings:
set time zone to UTC and make sure DST is off :wink:

There's only a couple of forums that I'm on that automatically change it.

Smart, my DST was off, but changing it to 'on' has had no effect, maybe it take some time to take effect.

It will probably be set to "Aymat" time, i.e. the time in Brussels.
Anything wrong with that?

To add, it even says at the very very bottom right hand corner of this page, that all times are UTC. :?
