Incorrect Forum time display

Post by G8DRK » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:31 pm

When I first access the Forum the "Current Time" listing is correct, but after login it increments by one hour.

Once you are logged in, click on the down arrow next to your user name at the top right of the page.
Click on "User Control Panel" then on the "Board Preferences" tab and check that you have the correct time-zone selected.

Hope that helps.

Yes, that did it, thanks! It was on UTC +1 for some reason. I've now set it to London and UTC +0. Not sure what will happen when British Summer Time starts though.

The forum software should automatically set BST at the end of March.
