Is there a way to set a timezone preference here?


I'm seeing today's posts with yesterday's date so presumably somehow my preference somewhere is set to UTC or something, and not NZ daylight saving.

Er... Have you tried looking in the menu on the top? There's a link there called Profile Options.

Seriously folks... Look around the menus here and you might find something new every day.

ok, it doesn't display as most BBS software does; you actually have to edit the preferences to see the option.

I had a look and tried to edit my timezone as all postings appear hour ahead (or I'm an hour behind). There is no option to select my current timezone (NZ), the best I can get is one hour ahead or more.

You go to your Profile page, change the settings - there's a dropdown list with all hours of the day - just select the current one.
