T(-) Countdown
[resolved] Countdown Time Wrong Based on Time Zone (7 posts)

    I have my timezone set to New York, but my time seems to be off by about 12 hours.

    Could it be a server time issue at all? If WP's time zone setting is the decider I'm not sure why this would be happening.

    Any information is much appreciated. If you need to see a link I'll have to email or send privately.

    Thanks in advance.

    This is very strange, as the WordPress Timezone set under Settings > General > Timezone is the timezone that is used. We would be happy to take a look and see what's up. Send us the appropriate info to: info [at] twinpictures [dot] de
    and we'll get you squared away.

    Baden thanks again for your help. I'll be sure to double check my launch date AND time in the future ;)

    This link you gave me was a huge help as well and may help others reading this post:

    Hi, I just installed your plug-in and think it looks perfect for my needs on the site I manage (www.ttne.us). I'm having a similar problem as Jason, I've set the site for the New York timezone and entered 18:00 for a 6pm EST ending time on April 17, 2013.

    I used the timeduration link Jason posted above and the time that it displayed, isn't matching with the calculation the timer is displaying. The link says that it should be 126 days, 5 hours and 25 minutes as I'm writing this, but the widget is showing 126 days, 9 hours and 5 minutes.

    I'm sure that I'm missing something simple, but didn't want to look for another countdown timer as the others really pale in comparison.

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks in advance

    Hey Lance,

    Can you verify that the timezone setting is correct under Dashboard > Settings > General > Timezone.

    Be sure the time and date being displayed there is correct for your location.

    Hi,
    Just checked. The time and date are correct for the east coast of the U.S. I have the time format set to look like 6:00 p.m. and not the 24-hour format...would that affect it since we're using the 24-hour format in the plug-in?
    So odd...

    We would like to investigate this further.
    Please set up a temp admin account on your WP install, and send the login info to:
    info [at] twinpictures [dot] de
    We will log in and see what in the wide world of sports is going on. Once we get it sussed out, you can delete/disable the temp admin account.
