This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

UK Time


The UK Time plugin reads the modification time of each post and comment being displayed and adds an hour if it falls inside British Summer Time.

  • No need to adjust the UTC offset ever again
  • Works with existing posts and comments, even if you used to adjust the UTC offset
  • No times or dates are permanently changed

Requires the web server’s time zone to be UTC.


  1. Unzip and upload the uktime.php file to the /wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Ensure your theme uses <?php the_time() ?> to display the time and <?php the_date() to display the date.*
  • Note: The default theme supplied with WordPress uses its own parameters to control the format of the date and time: <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>. The UK Time plugin will not modify any times and dates which do not use the global date and time format. To adjust the global date and time format, go to the Settings menu in WordPress.
