    Update from my side: This is most likely related to timezones/server time.

    The site unlocks but 2 hours too late.

    Hey Jack,

    Thanks for the update. I’ll mark this as resolved but I want to add for anyone else who sees this forum that it’s possible that if you have a caching plugin installed, the Launchpad holding page can be cached, so you need to be certain that you’ve cleared the cache for the auto launch to work.

    Hi Marc,

    It wasn’t the caching, I didn’t get the full problem but I solved it by adding 2 hours to your timer in your php file. I’m located in Vienna and have UTC +2.

    Hi Jackfelix,

    Can you kindly provide more information on, where did you actually changed the time in plugin file which fixed the issue for you?


    I’m interested in a solution for this problem, too! My site unlocks, but two hours late. I’m located in Germany.

    Hi catnasebaer,

    Kindly edit the below code to get the desired result:

    The file where code needs to be edited is under plugins: \launchpad-by-obox\functions\class.php

    Search for the word ‘automatic’ over there; you will get the below line:

    elseif(isset($options["automatic_launch"]) && isset($options["launchdate"]) && strtotime($options["launchdate"]) < time())

    Here kindly add your timezone difference in seconds; for Germany 2 hours difference will be 7200 seconds; so for you the code will be:

    elseif(isset($options["automatic_launch"]) && isset($options["launchdate"]) && strtotime($options["launchdate"]) < time()+7200)

    This should work! 🙂

    Hi vibhorv, your code works! Thank you for your help!

    Cheers! 🙂
