How to show a date on every post
« on: February 25, 2019, 08:19:14 AM »
At the moment members have to amend their own settings to their timezone is there a way for me to amend settings so that all posts will show a date and time

Thank you

All posts *DO* show a date and time - unless you or your theme removed that.
It's at the top of each and every post.


but what does that have to do with timezones?

Unless you are actually asking - is there a way to set the entire forum to a specific timezone, which is different form the server timezone.
if so, then the answer is yes...

Overall time offset - Not all forum administrators want their forum to use the same time zone as the server upon which it is hosted. Use this option to specify a time difference (in hours) between the desired time zone of the forum and the time zone of the server. Negative and decimal values are permitted.
Server timezone - The server timezone tells PHP where the server is located. Forum administrators must ensure this is set correctly, preferably to the country/city in which the server is located. More information can be found on the official PHP website.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
