    Um. What's wrong with replacing the UTC time in the appro box with what it really is where you are? How hard is that?

    I dont know where the APPRO box is.. Below where it says UTC is only has 2 fields
    default date format
    deafult time format

    and its like

    F j, Y

    which makes no sense.
    where is the appro box?

  4. In WordPress v1.5.2, the "Times in the weblog should differ by:" field is directly below the "UTC time is:" field. What version of WordPress are you using?

  6. And you don't have a "Times in the weblog should differ by:" field in Options/General?

    I'm MST equals -7 to UTC. If you're east of me by 2 zones you're -5 UTC. Just put that in there and update, then if the time's not right fiddle with it.

  10. 8 - 12 = -4

    So, set the "Times in the weblog should differ by:" field to -4.

    thanks guys.. damn..why we have to find out the hard way LOL... be nice to add a feature where it automatically sets it according to your computer clock

  12. That would involve a tactic which most users would consider to be "spyware", or "invasive" at the very least. It is better to just assume that most users will read all of the available settings and be able to do some basic arithmetic when confronted with a time offset setting.

    Don't they teach this kind of things in the elementary? ;)

    That would also be a horrendously bad idea, because people don't always use the same computer.

    When I ran the one-time post-install configuration, I seem to recall WordPress asking me what my timezone was, and filling in the -5 automatically, so maybe they could just include that timezone option on the options page as well as the hour offset, the way they did in the post-install config.
