Vanilla Timestamp Issue.

edited October 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I found out an issue showing timestamp values for user activities. This happens here in vanilla forum as well as in my deployment.
I am writing a post at Oct 04, 2010 - 3:49PM IST. Now instead of actual date it shows time 30mins before. Now in my case it would be 3.20PM

    3:50pm Monday (IST) - this is the current time in IST. I think back end all the time zone are in EST/EDT and time conversion is not happening for people based on their region.

    Quite a noticeable bug for Forum application any insight to this.

    You don't say which version of vanilla you are using and any plugins tht may be significant.
    Your posts here are showing up as UTC+5 (ie Pakistan time zone) sometimes posts on a webpage appear with a correctly converted time but sql database is running in a different timezone, depends on your hosting companies policy and does NOT change with DST changes, which I understand India does not use. The half-hour off timezones can cause confusion working out time in the rest of the world.

    I just did a time zone change, It worked for me. And since my forum is not international for time being i can keep my worries away.
