    That's odd, I'm not getting that. Did you change the time settings in your profile? If so, you may have made a mistake. If not, try it and see if it changes anything.

    Switched em around for a bit, tried a few different settigns, it did nothing.

    I'm on -5 right now, but I just tried -4, -3, and +7.

    I guess you're going to have to wait for someone intelligent to come help you then. :(

    Have you tried logging out and logging back in?

    just tried that, didn't work

    it's not a huge problem for me, but I figured some one important around here might want to know about this kind of thing. If it's messed up for me, the odds, on a forum this large, are that I'm not the only one.

    Don't suppose you'd mind taking a screeny and either posting it (if you have hosting), or IM'ing/emailing it to me (if you don't)?

    I'm working on an agenda for a twelve o'clock meeting right now. When I get back from the meeting, I'll take the screenshot and email you.

    Look in your profile for the box below Timezone. It should be called "Date Format" or something like that.

    Check that it is set as follows:
    D M d, Y g:i a

    That was it.

    It was set to "english" for some reason. I don't know how that got there.

    It turns out there has been a bug in the code affecting date formats for quite some time now (something like 900 accounts were affected), so I reset the date format for EVERYBODY

    This means that if you had put in a custom date format because you are European or something, you will probably have to go and change it back to the way you like it.

    Ah, that explains things. I returned my date format to normal, but something's still not working right: all the threads that were active today or yesterday have a "Last Post" date in the format "Today - 12:34 am". Did you hardcode that into the forum software ? I can't remember phpBB doing that.

    I post here simply to test my date. Feel free to delete this...

    So, does that mean it's a feature ? It's a bit annoying, because the "Today/Yesterday" thing is so different from my custom date string that it actually reduces the usability of the "Last Post" column. I also prefer the 24 hour format.

    I was concerned about the Yesterday/Today thing when I put it in for that reason. I will look into making it so it is on by default, but disabled if you set a custom date setting.

    I think we should have the date and time part of the universal page format (Like right beside the logo), just for reference.

    Why? The clock is at the bottom right of the screen
