Timezone support

  • Chris_K


    [preface: I’m just a simple WordPress support moderator, which uses bbPress]

    It is very (very) conceivable this may be a dumb user question… but I’ll ask anyways.

    Is there a way to get post dates in the support forums (or any bbPress forum) to show the time in my time zone?

    Editing my user profile and poking around, I don’t see an option to set my proper time offset (I’m GMT – 7).

    I know it’s not a huge deal, but it’d be keen to see!

  • In your config file you’ll see this:

    $bb->gmt_offset = -4;

    Just set the value to your own timezone. Mine is -8 for PST.

    Handy, there is no way to do this in bbPress core. A plugin could accomplish this, but I do not think the core will support it.

    (M, I believe HandySolo is asking about user-specific time zone settings.)

    Ah, I can see now I misread the question, you could erase my post so it doesn’t confuse anyone.

    User-specific time settings would be nice. Another site which I may switch to bbPress would probably prefer to have that feature.



    Thanks mdawaffe.

    At least now I know I’m not missing an obvious user preference setting somewhere, which was my fear.
