Time Offset still present in BP 1.2.6

  • paulhastings0


    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.



    on my version on 1.2.6, all my time is off by 7 hours.



    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)
