Support » Fixing WordPress » Server in different timezone

  • I am in the UK, which is at British Summer Time, but my server is in America (don’t know the timezone’s name, but it is GMT-5)
    How can I make it so my posts are given the correct timestamp. I tried changing the timezone in the options, but then it takes 4-5 hours before posts show up, presumably because they seemingly occur in the future.
    Thanks WP, I’m just swithing over from MT, and so far I am very impressed!

  • that’s weird since my server is an hour behind, and i have the timezone option set to show my time zone and my posts load instantly

    In (my) admin panel it says:
    GMT time is: 2004-10-12 12:45:52 am
    Times in the weblog should differ by:
    What did you put after by??

    I’ve just changed it to simply “1” and it seems to work.

    RSS time zone issue: GMT time + GMT time zone or local time + local time zone

    I subscribe some feed published by wordpress: I found the timezone problem. the post always shown published tomorrow.

    current wordpress default pubDate field is localtime + GMT timezone:
    <pubDate>Wed, 25 May 2005 09:32:44 +0000</pubDate>
    but feed publish in China: it should be
    <pubDate>Wed, 25 May 2005 09:32:44 +0800</pubDate>
    or convert time to GMT and +0000
    <pubDate>Wed, 25 May 2005 01:32:44 +0000</pubDate>
