    Forum clock

    I know it is a really really minor thing, but it has been bugging me for ages... The clock that records when posts are made is an hour out. For example it is currently about 7.45pm, but this post will be recorded as 8.45. And we are currently in GMT so it isn't a daylight saving thing.
    Sorry, Robert, I know you have far bigger fish to fry than this.

    EDIT: that's odd, it's sorted now, must be me
    Ignore me.

    I get GMT +1 when I am not logged in, but GMT when I am logged in. The posted times change, too.

    My guess is that when we are not logged in, the forum cannot pick up the time settings I have set.

      The time zone is set from each user's individual preferences so, it is read when you are logged in. See Settings > General Settings.

        Robert, thanks, I really thought I was going mad last night. To explain, I often browse (not logged in) at work at lunchtime, so the clock was wrong, and I thought 'tonight I'll get around to saying something about that'. So in the evening I checked it was still showing an hour wrong (my iPad doesn't auto log me in), wrote the thread, which required me to log in, then went back and all the times had changed. I assumed I must have imagined the whole thing.
        So, again, it's a very minor thing, but would it make more sense to have it set to GMT/BST by default so at least your majority (UK) users see it correctly? If anything, I could understand leaving it on GMT all year, but not GMT+1.
        Cheers,

          Adjusted. Now GMT when you are not logged in.
