The time stamp for messages on the board seems to be off by one hour. For example, I will post this message at 11:30 PM MST but the time stamp for it will read 10:30 PM.

I have confirmed my settings (Mountain Time - Auto Detect Daylight Saving Time).

Brian, Am I doing something wrong or is your server clock off by an hour?

Is anyone else experiencing the same problem? (i.e., if you are in Eastern Time does the time stamp read 12:30 AM?)

Central Time is correct.

Near the bottom of the page right under the FREA banner is the board time.

Currently the time says:

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 09:12 AM.

My computer time says 9:12am

Normally here on the west coast it is -8 but I believe that because of the auto detect of DST it is -7.

This year the dates of the time change have been changed so I wouldn't be surprised if the times are off by an hour at that point for a while.

The current time is 12:52 PM, the time on my computer is 12:52 PM and the board time is:

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:52 AM.

I will check the time on another computer and see if the time continues to off by one hour.

If it continues to be an issue you can go to "Quick Links" -> "Edit Options" and change your " Date & Time Options"

Hope that helps.

I found the problem. My bad. I had the time set correctly on my computer but I had the wrong time zone. (Somehow it was set to Pacific Time.) I Changed the time zone to Mountain Time and that seems to have fixed everything.
