Support » Fixing WordPress » Wrong time display on web pages

  • I am relatively new to WordPress. Our church website was designed in WP by someone who has left the scene and is not available to assist with my problem. I have absolutely no prior experience with PHP.

    The site was designed to show the current day of the week, month, day of month and year in the left upper portion of each web page. The problem is that the date changes to the next day 7 hours prematurely. I’ve found the php code that deals with the date display in the dashboard in WP-admin. I actually added the parameters “T” and “h:i A” to the php code that was already in Edit Themes/Header to see if I could better understand how this works. I found these parameters while searching for help. Now my web pages display: day of week, month, day of month, year, “UTC” and time of day which is 7 hours ahead of my local time.

    I’m guessing that this means that my web site “thinks” that it is in the UTC timezone instead of the UTC-7 timezone. But I have no idea how to remedy this problem.

    To view my web site:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please remember that I’m not very coding sophisticated with any suggestions you might have.
