Is it possible to change the timezone for the forum so that all posts are listed in your chosen local time zone

 

I can change my time zone in my profile but it doesn't seem to have an affect on how the global site time zone for the forum is displayed.

 

hope that makes sense.

Are you referring to the same issue as this one?

It didn't occur to me that the time is 1 hour behind my own time. But now that you mention it.....

 

It happens to me when I'm signed in. So I think it's a different problem. I think the sites timezone is just not the same as my local one... by 1 hour? Maybe it is my time zone and just 1 hour out.

 

When I sign out its 3 hours out. If its the same problem I'll happily join the other discussion.

There are two times listed in every post on BC. Under the avatar you will see 'Local time'. This is the local time of the poster when you read a post, although it is possible to opt out of having this displayed. The other, at the top of the post where it says 'Posted - date - time' is your local time as the reader of when the post was made.

 

If you have a malware infection on your computer I suggest you start a topic in the 'Am I infected ?' section of BC, just read the guidance notes first.
