If your posts appear to be off by one hour, then you need to go into your own settings and change it.

Do this by:
  1. Clicking on User Control Panel above
  2. Selecting the Board Preferences tab
  3. On the Edit global settings page, selecting No on the "Summer Time/DST is in effect:" setting.

That's it. The global setting on the board has changed, but users control their own setting for time zone and DST.



I seem to remember there being an admin setting to force the forum to override user settings for stuff like that oh phpbb forums.. I used to have people from all over the world posting on the boards I ran, but I always forced everything to pacific time (where I lived at the time).

I know the time changed a while back, but I just realized that the time was wrong on posts again. So I have changed it. I just wanted to remind you to change it if you haven't already.

Go under User Control Panel. Then Board Preferences. Glide down to Summer Time/DST and click No, then submit.

Once this is done, enjoy the correct time.

I'm sure this one could to.... if there were an admin with the time or interest to change it or figure it out. :D
Hopefully nobody is relying on the time here for some secret missions or something this is critically time sensitive. To tell you the truth I've never changed my profile or cared what the time said. I never even look at the times here. I don't care. I care about the content of the threads. But thats just me.

Its been a while since I was an admin on a phpbb forum, but as I recall theres a checkbox in the admin settings that forces users to use the boards time, which basically makes it ignore whatever they have set in their profile as far as timezone.
