How do I change the time?
« on: December 01, 2020, 01:42:43 AM »
For some reason my time on the forum is Atlantic Time. Is there some way I can make it Eastern?

Why would you even look at forum time when you have a clock in the bottom right of the screen?

Profile - look and layout - time offset, and you're done Tom.

This can be somewhat useful if one wants to know how much time ago a post was made.

Profile has drop down list that includes summary.

Then 'Modify Profile'  (next to highlighted 'Profile info' two lines below profile) has 'look and layout' in a similar drop down menu.

In my layout when clicking on profile there is a sidebar on the left that has "look and layout" as one of the options.

Try this link, should hopefully work for you.
