Timezone Settings in Cyclos

Post by mohsin »

Hello

I was wondering if anyone considered including a timezone setting at user level or instance level where the ISP may be in a different time zone to the members - in our system I had simply added a small field where a user could add or reduce hrs and minutes from the system time (ie

Time Difference: ___ ___ + - in hh:mm
Server Time is: 11:49:26 PM, 12-Jul-2005

(this was the ISP server time in USA), the member could personally put their time zone here ie for Australia, New Zealand or UK even depending where the user was located). I did not automate day light saving but then a user can easily fix it from their own profile (was running short of development funds at the time... so I do not research in automating the daylight saving side).

I am asking this because it is fairly easy to do as Local Setting or Individual Member can do it at registration and we can host Cyclos for community members in Melbourne (Australia) or Christchurch (NZ) or even London (UK) using shared hosting that would save costs for all instances. Because we plan to use for cyclos for social purposes this is not critical for now.

Kind regards

No, not yet.

But we are planning to work on an extension of Cyclos for interlinking different systems. In such a system, a time zone setting would be quite usefull.

So I'm quite sure there will be something like this in some future version, though at the moment we cannot promise anything, as it is not yet in our planning.
