Daylight Savings Time
Nov 1st, 2010 at 3:09am
 
In "options" you can tick a box to "enable automatic Daylight Savings Time change". Does it work on your computers? It doesn't on mine (with IE8 if that matters).

What program are you referring to?

I find the option to control *daylight savings* by right clicking on the the time in the in the *System Tray* area of the Task Bar (far right side on my desktop), selecting *Adjust Date/Time*, and going to the *Time Zone* tab, and at the bottom of that dialog box there's a check box to enable automatic daylight savings time adjustments.

That function has worked on my systems for years without a problem.  I've seen occasional updates for time zone adjustments from Windows Update that needed to be downloaded/installed.

My *bad*!

I see you are referring to the *User CP* (Control Panel) of the forum software, *Profile*, and then *Options*.

My *box* is checked.  But, I've never paid any attention to that setting!  I thought the system's clock setting takes care of that--so I'm not sure what the forum software is supposed to do with that setting?!

I know you have to set the *Time Offset* to have the forum show your *local* time, rather than the server's time in Chicago, IL--USA--Central Time Zone.

So, your time is not based on your system's time settings?

Yes, I refer to the Forum Software > User CP > Profile > Options. The box for "enable automatic Daylight Savings Time change" is ticked but the time has not been set back an hour. The system time is 16:55 (correct and automatically set back one hour by XP SP3) but at the top left corner in the Forum, it reads 17:55 (when I refresh the page it gets updated). If I untick the box, the forum time gets correct. Nothing automatic about it ... Lips Sealed ... !

Wouldn't this be the same issue we discussed before?

Today is when our USA daylight savings time changes--my forum clock has updated appropriately!

I wonder if those places where they do not use *daylight savings time*--if they now have a forum time that's an hour off?

Maybe that's what checking or unchecking that *Enable automatic Daylight Savings Time change?* in the User CP Options area is all about!

What happened on your system?

When I rechecked the box, nothing happened. I think you have found the reason. We in Europe are ahead of you guys in the U.S. ... Grin ... !
