Noting this more as a PSA and awareness for UAM team.
We use Ultimate Ads Manager version 2.4.0
After updating to WordPress 5.3 the events we show on our calendar started showing with UTC times instead of our timezone times (CST, -6)…So 12p-1p showed as 5p-6p. A combination of WP 5.3, The Events Calendar 4.9.11 and Ultimate Ads Manager 2.4.0 in use caused this issue.
The issue has been discussed in a thread on The Events Calendar plugin:
This thread cited use of
date_default_timezone_setin other plugins can result in UTC times as we were seeing and referenced 5.3 documentation recommending plugins no longer use the function to set default timezone (see: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2019/09/23/date-time-improvements-wp-5-3/).
Searching across our plugins there’s usage in
statistics-calculator.php. Commenting out the
date_default_timezone_setline fixed our issue.
