Cannot find time zone designation in CSS

  1. Would someone please take a look at my blog & CSS here (i have tweaked wank's biology skin):

    The entry date includes the time zone designation of UTC, but my blog time zone is set to GMT-5 (UTC-6). The time of the posts is correct, but the time zone is not.

    I cannot find where this hardcoded UTC is in the style sheet. Can someone help me, please?


  2. You wanna change this part, right?

    If so, it is affected by the class "entry-date" which I don't see in your CSS. So, to change it, you need to define it.

         /* attributes you want it to have */


  3. sweet; i'll give that a try. Thanks!

    Edit: Wait, the attribute is there already:

    .entry-date {
    font-weight:normal !important;

    i'm totally lost as to what to do with this. Do i need to use a Generated Content attribute?

  4. I think he means you have to define the format. But then im useless at CSS so dont take my word for it lol

  5. hmm, when I searched your CSS, I couldn't find it. I must have missed it.

    Have you tried changing those attributes?

  6. the only thing i changed was the font size. It seems like none of those things would have anything to do with the time zone.

    Also, i noticed that the "UTC" appears on the comments, too.

  7. here's what i found while looking at the entire page source:
    <div class="entry-date"><abbr class="published" title="2007-06-07T15:48:18+0000">Thu 7 Jun 2007 – 15:48 UTC</abbr></div>

    Can i change this, or am i stuck with it? The CSS shows the following attributes:

    abbr.published {
    	border: 0;
    	cursor: default;
    	margin: 0;
    body.home abbr.published, body.archive abbr.published, {
    	font-weight: bold;
  8. yeah, you can change whatever you want in your CSS.

    That's odd. I mean, just changing the entry-date class should work. It works for me in one of my blogs where I am using Sandbox.

    Maybe I'm missing something here. What is it that you wanna do with that part? do you want to change font style, color?

  9. I think this is a bug that i will report next week. The problem is that the wrong time zone displays in my "entry-date" (UTC instead of GMT-5), and this is not CSS-dependent.

    Thanks for trying to help me!
