Topic: Timezone not included

Not sure if this is a feature request or a bug report smile

My timezone is not included -- it's GMT -3.5 hours (-2.5 hours during daylight savings time).

It was easy enough to modify the forms in profile.php and admin_options.php to add options for GMT -2.5 and GMT -3.5, but the database field where the timezone is stored also had to be changed. It's currently an integer; I changed it to floating point (3,1).

Also in register.php, line 159 had to go:

$timezone = intval($_POST['timezone']);

Re: Timezone not included

There are non-integer timezones? I had no idea. Where do you live?

It's designed specifically to give local Internet IT developers a 1/2 hour jump on the rest of North America. wink

Re: Timezone not included

Really? I thought it was due to the fact that the earth is not perfectly sephircal, more like an egg shape. Oh well, guess I was wrong....

Do, or do not.

Re: Timezone not included

Why, god why? A "non-integer" timezone must be the stupidest thing since daylight savings time.

Re: Timezone not included

I was just going to request that someone add the newfoundland time zone, but i did a quick search first.

So I guess there's no plan on trying to add these time zones?

Oh, and for those of you who don't know, Newfoundland is an island in eastern canada. It's paradise here, not due to the weather, it's because of the people.

Uhm yeah.

Re: Timezone not included

Oh. I forgot to mention. The residents of
Rawaki Islands: Enderbury Kiribati (+13)
Line Islands: Kiritibati (+14)

They should be equally delighted. Somebody will tell me now that that they are uninhabited.
