How should we handle it? Should I ask everyone to move their timezone forward?

This is the way it works:

All times are stored in a timestamp, which is GMT.

Then, phpBB adds or substracts hours according to the timezone, but not according to summer & winter time.

I've asked for help at the phpBB Forums, they'll probably have some ideas.

The way it currently works is the following:

- The profile timezone selection has been changed to only include the GMT offset.
- During the summer, the time is put ahead one hour everywhere on the board, without any action on your part
- During the winter, the time is put back to winter time, and the timezone select is modified so that it says GMT instead of GMT +1, GMT +1 instead of GMT +2, etc... No action is required on your part for this.

The board has been changed back to winter time. You shouldn't have to do anything.

Sorry for not doing this earlier, I completely forgot! Embarassed

Some how my profile ended up getting set to GMT-1.

Anything to do with the fact I had already changed it from GMT+1 to GMT?

Yes, that would be the reason. The value in the database would then have been '-1'.

I have moved all times forward an hour. I have also made changes to the active topics on the home page, which now should display the time based on the timezone in your profile (ie: I am in France, my timezone was set to GMT +1, it was moved to GMT +2, and the active topics are now also on GMT +2).

The board has been moved back to summer time Smile.

Let me know if there are any problems.

This post should show up as having been made at 10:30 if you are on GMT +2, 09:30 if you are on GMT +1 (British Summer Time), or 08:30 if you are on GMT (see Profile page for setting).

I have to do it manually. I guess I could code it in to make the changes I make automatically twice a year, but I haven't got round to it, especially as phpBB 2.2 might be out next time I do it (the feature is already included in it and each user can change the option themselves).
