Daylight savings time? (8 posts)

    Can I set WordPress to automatically detect US daylight time, or do I need to set my time variable from -5 to -4 whenever daylight time goes into effect? Thanks in advance.

    Shouldn't your host have updated the time on the servers?

    I guess not.

    Well... Crack some skulls.

  5. The time offset is from UTC/GMT, which doesn't change, so it is necessary to change the offset manually.

    I live in GMT, my host is in PST, so if their servers *did* automagically change things, I'd have problems....

    Hmm. Wonder how hard it would be to write a plugin that automatically and correctly +1/-1 the offset for those living in Daylight Savings Land. Hmm...

    Checkout this plugin. It should do the trick for automatic DST shifting.

    I like it when the plugin magically appears. ;)
