#369 The Time is +5 of local Timezone (for EST, i.e. GMT-5)


The timezone for the server and the system, as well as the user is set to GMT-5, but the time shown (e.g. when compiling the system module or setting the time of publish in News) is for GMT (which is +5 of the local Timezone).

At this moment I don't know if this is the same behavior for other timezones (i.e. local Timezone +5, or just GMT). We need to test on systems in other Timezones.

    Just tested on www.xoops.org and without XavierS' hack, it works OK.
    But it doesn't work on local WAMP installation.

    the system of time management is not effective, it does not handle timezones, nor DST
    we must correct it
    GMT +-XX is'nt correct
    My first solution was'nt correct i tryed to use the "timezone_offset" and "default_TZ"
    i was wrong, my apologize
    i think i find a solution but we need a cookies to save the true timezone of the user before his login and on the first page, without this cookies, the time will be with the default_tz
