Author Posts April 20, 2007 at 11:39 am #98150 spammanMember Okay, so I wrote a post yesterday and timestamped it for April 20th 2007 @ 07:00. Here it is 7:36 am and I don’t see posted yet. Why is that? The time setting in my options is set to -5 which should be right for the US East Coast (correct?). April 20, 2007 at 11:41 am #98266 cornellMember Spamman – what’s the link to your blog? April 20, 2007 at 12:31 pm #98272 spammanMember http://infectedairsoft.wordpress.com I just checked it out, and it’s posted now, but like an hour late. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the east coast of the US -5 hours? April 20, 2007 at 12:41 pm #98274 katmMember Nope, you’re right. Eastern time is currently UTC-5. April 20, 2007 at 1:44 pm #98278 spammanMember Yeah I just realized that WordPress does not take into account the time change 2x a year for Daylight Savings time. So that would be why I need to set it to -4 instead. April 20, 2007 at 1:48 pm #98279 drmikeMember Yup. Had to do it on mine as well. WordPress.com runs on UTC time so if we here in the US change our clocks, we have to change our blog’s clocks as well. April 21, 2007 at 8:23 pm #98458 spammanMember Thanks for the help guys.
