Any way to adjust the forum clock?

That's weird! I was able to change the forum clock to my time zone (it's under Profile, then down to the submenu below with 'Modify Profile', then Look and Layout, then fill in the time offset).

Huh, maybe that will adjust minutes too?

It's strange, if I go into the settings it shows: Current forum time: February 14, 2017, 03:40:03 pm, but it's only 3:37 pm.

Here's a screen grab I took right after a browser refresh comparing the forum and timeanddate.com times...



Notice that the forum time is 2 minutes and 53 seconds fast.

I'll try and take a look after eccc while on va-ka in a couple of weeks.  it's the type of problem i enjoy messing with. ;) very relaxing.

No rush on looking into this, I just wasn't sure if it was just me or not.

It seems that SMF gets it's time directly from the server, so that means the server clock must have drifted a bit.

Certainly nothing that needs dealing with while you are on vacation.

Thanks.

oohh, sometimes it's nice to work on a tech problem rather then dealing with social stuff.... I do agree it's got to do with the server time since the clock below, the one that show's PT, goes out to another place for a different time hence them not being in sync.

I can't dive to deep 'cuz that's really jopari's domain & he requires me to servery document everything i do --- LOL- /see my earlier statement abt writing/

You might want to crop your IP Address out of that photo. Not a major deal, but I wouldn't want my IP Address showing to everyone. Not sure what's going on with your posting time, but just curious why it would matter if it was only a few minutes off.

Looks like server time might be off. I was watching as a few new posts came up and they seem to be off, too. Posting this at 11:16:00 Pacific time just to test.

Yep... check out the top left corner of the page (where the greeting is). The bottom line is time provided by timeanddate.com and the one above it appears to be the server time. Posts obviously are going to use the server's time when tagging. Just needs some adjusting.

I don't know, the post time is off, just posted at :15, not 7 minutes ago.

Confirmed posting time is off on PC forum and Tapatalk posts as well.
