Is Berlin an actual timezone identifier?

It is Europe / Berlin.

As you can see in the linked links these are language strings of Location names in the Language file Timezones.english.php

Therefore my question where are these language stings used in the subdivision // Location names., how are they displayed in the selection menu. I want to display this language string $txt['Europe/Berlin'] = 'Berlin'; to the German user in the time zone selection field. The language string is available, how to display it for the German time zone.

Which of these are you trying to do?

BeforeAfter
Option 1:[UTC+02:00] - Central European Time (CEST/CET)[UTC+02:00] - Berlin, Büsingen, Paris, Rome, Madrid, etc. (CEST/CET)
Option 2:[UTC+02:00] - Central European Time (CEST/CET)[UTC+02:00] - Berlin (CEST/CET)
[UTC+02:00] - Büsingen (CEST/CET)
[UTC+02:00] - Ceuta (CEST/CET)
[UTC+02:00] - Madrid (CEST/CET)
[UTC+02:00] - Paris (CEST/CET)
[UTC+02:00] - Rome (CEST/CET)
[UTC+02:00] - Stockholm (CEST/CET)
...

Either way, if you create a small modification package, you can do what you want using the integrate_metazones hook in Subs-Timezones.php.

If you prefer Option 1, then your hooked function should look something like this:
function alternative_metazones(&tzid_metazones, $when)
{
    global $tztxt;

    $tztxt['generic_timezone'] = '%1$s';
    $tzid_metazones = array();
}

If you prefer Option 2, then your hooked function should look something like this:
function alternative_metazones(&tzid_metazones, $when)
{
    global $tztxt, $txt;

    $tztxt['generic_timezone'] = '%1$s';

    foreach (timezone_identifiers_list() as $tzid) {
        $tzid_metazones[$tzid] = $tzid;

        if (isset($txt[$tzid]))
            $tztxt[$tzid] = $txt[$tzid];
    }
}

Sorry for the late reply. The 2nd option is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot

Hi @Sesquipedalian

I also thought that I would like to have Warsaw entered here.

[UTC+02:00] - Berlin, Büsingen, Paris, Rome, Madrid, etc. (CEST/CET)

So how can I do that in this code? How to add the city of Warsaw?

Set the "Show time zones from these countries first" setting to "PL".

@Sesquipedalian

I forgot about this post. So now I answer.

In one post you gave the codes, but it's not easy, because to enter one or the other code to Subs-Timezones.php I need to find out how to insert the hook, right? So I have to read about it here?

Follow these steps to accomplish what you want, @jsx:

  • Download and install wintstar's mod.
  • Open the mod's PHP file in a text editor.
  • Inside the PHP file, find the priority_timezones_plus_metazones() function and change the code inside it to match what I posted as "Option 1" above. (Don't change the name of the function, just the code inside it.)
  • In the SMF admin control panel, set the "Show time zones from these countries first" setting to "PL".

That should produce exactly the output you want.

I had no idea @wintstar made such a mod. Everything is clear to me now. Thanks for the help.
