View Full Version : Time wrong on PhotoPost(NOT A BUG)
August 15th, 2005, 07:15 AM
I'm not sure how long this has been happening, I just noticed it this morning but it appears that the time that PhotoPost is using for the image upload date & in the admin log, is about 8 hours behind the actual system time and the time that vBulletin has.

Okay no one understands this one LOL
Okay maybe if I get time I will write a simple tutorial.
VBulletin sets server's time back or forward to GMT time and then the user offset is used to calculate the proper time. Thus in Photopost say if your server is in California which it looks like you need to in Global Options in the gmt offset place 8 to get back to GMT time then your VB offset will be used when everything is set back to 0 to calculate the true time.

Thanks for the quick response.
I saw the offset in the AdminCP which is currently set at "0", but I was surprised that PhotoPost did not pick up its time from vBulletin, which was what I was expecting that it would have done.
I'll change my offset to fix it..

No VBulletin is the only app I know of sets things to GMT then counts back or forward. Most applications use a timeoffset from the server time which is what we use it and every other forum we integrate with uses an offset.
That is the reason that we have this global option for you to set the time to GMT for VB.
