There you go.
Now, since it appears to work correctly for me and for permaroot, we need to figure out why it's not working for you.

That may require the forum admins to respond. As I said, I don't see how it could be affected by the client browser, but I could be wrong about that.

According to this post I found, the auto detection relies on JavaScript to query the client's DST setting, so it could definitely be affected by the browser.

Aha! So it is a function of the client...
Crippled, what is the TZ and DST setting on your desktop?

What desktop are you using? On Cinnamon, I don't have an "automatic" setting for DST...I have to select the city (Phoenix, in my case), and that sets the time zone and DST.

We are not talking about the forum settings any more, but the settings on your 'puter/browser/desktop.

Xfce. New York City Eastern time zone. That's impossible that it's the computer settings because my computer settings are correct. Also the time on all other forums I go on are correct.
