Time Offset still present in BP 1.2.6

    Running WP 3.0.1 with a child theme of the BP default, just upgraded to 1.2.6 and I’ve confirmed that the GMT time lag still exists for private messaging.

    I believe Ticket 2203 was supposed to fix this and was committed to the 1.2.6 release. Help?

    Think we just need to wait on a decision as to whether a bug fix point release is agreed, obviously from our point of view it’s an easy core hack to implement.

    The link to the patch isn’t working for me. How do I fix this issue? It’s a problem in my activity stream as well. Thanks.

    @dnmedia If it’s happening in your activity stream also then it sounds like you may not have the correct timezone selected in Dashboard >> Settings >> General.

    The time stamps on my blog are fine. I applied the omgpizza.patch and that seemed to fix some items in the activity stream. However, time stamps on forum posts are still off by 8hrs.

    I just figured out that my server time is 8hrs different than my WP time (which is correct). I’m guessing the forums are looking at the server time? Is there a way to switch which one it uses?

    As forums are provided totally by bbPress, it’s a possibility that as you can’t access the bbPress admin, you can’t set its time like you do with WordPress. Hmm.

    EDIT: if you want to try a totally crazy “fix” which I have not even verified the problem exists, let alone the cause, try creating a new record in your wp_bb_meta table as follows:
    object_type = bb_option
    object_id = 0
    meta_key = gmt_offset
    meta_value = ? (set this to a number for the timezone offset, i.e. “1” for central european time)
