i would like me self-hosted vanilla to obey my set time and not the client's time is there a way to do this ?
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
will they ever learn?
oops sorry im using 2.1b
change this in bootstrap to your own
// Make sure a default time zone is set
and make sure upon registration that the houroffset in the user table is zero.
I haven't tested it, but it seems like it should work.
or you could leave it as utc and change offset in user table to the number you want, but i think the first way (with change in bootstrap) will also present your server with the time you want when a user is not logged in as well.
