I just posted a reply and noticed the timestamp on the reply is one hour ahead of local time. I am in the State of Florida, USA (eastern standard time, GMT -5). Is UtterAccess' time zone the atlantic standadrd time, GMT -4, or do you have to manually change your server's time?

Good questions. We had a daylight savings time change today, so that may be a factor as well.

Hi Frank: Go to the UA My Control Panel in your account. Choose Board Settings (under Options). Un-check the DST box. Click on Change My Account Settings.

I did that this morning to adjust the time.

Hi Joe,

Right after George replied to my post, the timestamp on my reply was no longer one hour ahead, (without me unchecking the DST box), so I am assuming that George, or another admin, changed the server's time back one hour? I just visited the settings you suggested, and the DST box was checked, so I unchecked it. I would think it would be easier for the UA server to automatically adjust DST on and off, unless the UA frontend client is not obtaining the servers time, and then readjusting the displayed time according to the time zone the users select in their control panel? The attached image of UA's DST settings also seems a bit confusing.

I changed nothing. Perhaps it was, as I suggested, timing.
