Main page of the forum:

jforum/forums/list.page contains current time:
The time now is: 29/08/2006 03:51:10

This is I believe server time. How can I change it to German or Italian or any other time local to the user who is using the forum?

Thank you.

You can't configure the shown time to reflect each forum user's time zone without making coding modifications.

I suppose this could be implemented via a new setting in the user profile, but would cause confusion with time stamping posts in the forum unless the server time was used for every post. But if you do that, what is really the point of displaying a different time zone? If you need to see what time it is, you can look on your computer (or at a clock).

I guess I was not clear enough. Let's say my server is in Africa that hosts jforum. Jforum is configured for people in Mexico city. I want to have time that is Mexical local time but not African.

Thanks.

In that case, it would depend upon the host managing the server as to what time would be used. If it's "your" server, you can set it to whatever time zone you want.

If you are not the only customer hosting on the server, it would depend upon the policies of the host company providing the server.

Not sure on Fedora .. but check in /etc. There should be a symbollic link /etc/localtime that points to /usr/share/zoneinfo/YOUR_TIME_ZONE_HERE. (I use Gentoo Linux)

in my case /etc/localtime is not a link but a regular file.
Do you think it needs to be a link?

I also have an /etc/conf.d/clock file which is set to "local" - which would be my computer's system time. You might need to do a search on the Fedora forum to see how to set your timezone.
