    Really nice plugin!

    Is there any possibility to make the server timezone to synchronize with the actual server where the website is hosted?

    I think this is really useful because you don’t know from where you have the visitors so this seems to be the only solution to fix this.

    Any suggestion?

    Glad you’re enjoying it.

    The default setting for the timezone is grabbed from WordPress, the idea being that you’d have it set to whatever timezone you’re working in – and of course you can always change the timezone for your shortcode or rule. The potential problem in grabbing it from the hosting provider’s servers is that they may not have it set to the timezone the servers reside in – many will have it set to GMT, for instance.

    Hope that explains it a little better.


    I’m not sure if I understand, I just want to use a time which is pretty standard.

    For example If I set right now the timezone to Europe and someone visits from USA I think it will be a huge delay so this is not good.

    I want to be able to make it kind of the same for everyone but I don’t know if this is possible.

    Actually, that’s exactly how it works. If, for example, you set the timezone to ‘Europe/London’ and you have some content showing starting at 6:00 PM, someone living in New York will be able to see it starting at 1:00 PM her time (because there’s a 5 hour time difference).
