On my Main settings I have our site set to USA Eastern Time Zone (GMT - 5).

I have just noticed that our Event Calendar and the Countdown panel keep wanting to default to (GMT - 4).

I'm not certain, but I would think that these should take their time zone cue from whatever the setting is in the Admin Panel.

Thanks !

To me this doesn't sound like a bug. The timezone setting in your admin panel has nothing to do with the events panel, it is just the default timezone for when members register. Times are displayed on a per user basis, not per website.

OK, thank you.

...I had an idea while typing my response and just pinned down what's going on.

Example - In the Event Calendar we scheduled an event for 8pm. My time Option is set to US Eastern (EST / UTC-5). When I look at the Event...it states "8pm - date - (GMT/UTC-5)". This is correct, as the event will be at 8pm.

Then, I went to my profile and checked the box that says "automatically adjust for daylight savings time". Now when I look at the event it states "9pm - date - (GMT/UTC-4)". This is not correct....the event is still at 8pm even though we are now in observance of DST and are technically (EDT / UTC-4)

Does this help ?? The time of day of an event should not change with the DST...the event will still remain at the stated time.

From what I can see, it looks like all new events would be created at UTC-4. I think the only "problem" is for events posted/created prior to the switch to DST last month. All of these events are now off by one hour.

Thanks James !

Sorry for the late response, thanks for adding this feature. Without it, it had made a lot of the features on the website unusable.
