Post Expirator
[resolved] Expiring Posts Going Back 4 hours... (3 posts)

    I see this has been addressed in this thread but it's still not resolved despite being marked as such.

    I'm in the Eastern Time Zone, and my WP is set to New York for the timezone. The post expirator properly shows that I'm currently in EDT in the box, but when I set it for an expiration of 23:59 and click update, the time goes to 4 hours before I set it.

    It seems that whatever time I enter is assumed to be GMT, and then it is BACKconverted to my timezone (hence the 4 hours in my case, or 7 hours in the case of someone on the west coast) before the value is actually set on the post. That shouldn't be happening. It shouldn't be doing any math at all.

    I'm in a Linux Shared Environment.

    I'm noticing the same issue. I'm in CDT. I have version 2.0.1 installed with WP 3.5.1

    Example

    I enter in

    2013 April 03

    11 00 [the label is Hour (CDT)]

    When I save, it get's converted to:

    2013 April 03

    6 00 [the label is Hour (CDT)]

    Exactly 5 hours earlier. Which is my GMT Timezone Offset.

    I believe this issue should be fixed in 2.1.0, which has just been released.
