phpBB TimeZone

My phpBB bulletin board is stuck on GMT. No matter how I change it in the admin section to GMT -8, all the posting times are still in GMT.

Anyone know how to fix this?

You have updated the board default , but that does not update the user preferences (including admin!).

I don’t know of any way to effect the defualt time across all users, but that’s probably fine becuase (if you have any yet - is this a new board?) your users will set it to their own time zone. However, now that you have set it all new users will have your time zone selected by default.


I did the same but the main page of the forum still shows the GMT time. I’ve hit refresh and used different browsers. No effect.

Edit: Nevermind. I found it. My “admin” user was still on GMT, while my own personal user was on the correct GMT offset.
