Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Problem of Time zone UTC

  • Resolved damonde


    My name is damonde from Japan.
    I have a time zone problem. Please help me soon!
    The time zone of wp-admin is Asia/Tokyo, but in the block of a new event post page it is displayed UTC. Even if I change the time zone setting method of the configuration, the block time zone is always UTC, so I have to change it manually each time. I tried to disable themes and plugins. But nothing has changed. So this cause is not the themes or plugins.
    I think it was working correctly 2 months ago. Please tell me how to display the time zone Asia/Tokyo in the block.

    Hi @damonde

    Thanks for reaching out!

    I have checked this and this looks like a bug in our plugin. For now you will need to select the right time zone for each event when you first create it.

    Sorry about this inconvenience! I have filed an internal bugticket for this and our devs will take a look. We’ll send you an update here when the fix is out.

    Thanks for your patience until then.

    Hi @aguseo

    Do you have a timeline for a fix for this yet? Just purchased Events Calendar Pro for a site that is going live soon, and really need to get this bug fixed.

    Having exactly the same problem – the events block is not reflecting the WordPress time zone settings. A lot of events were created before the problem was noticed, so hoping there’s also a fix for retrospectively created events?



    This is just the very same issue I reported recently:

    My workaround is to disable Gutenberg blocks. The old editor has no problems with the correct time-zone.

    Indeed, it is the same issue. Thanks @thragor for chiming in.

    We are already working on a fix and hope to ship it in the next release. Target is end July.


    Mr.Andras, thank you for your support !!
    We look forward to your reply here.
