Tip: Correcting timezone in e-mail footer

Tip: Correcting timezone in e-mail footer

Problem:
Sometimes the date/time for the user info of the email footer is off by one hour to several hours. This is more likely to happen if your web server is hosted in a different timezone as the timezone where you are.

Solution:
You must set the timezone correctly in WordPress – General Settings

Here is how:  Go to the WordPress Administration page, click “Settings – General”  from the options menu. You might find the timezone is set manually by UTC offset (example: UTC-7). Change the timezone to use Country/City Name so that your nearest City Timezone is selected. Click “Save Changes” to save the setting.

setting-wordpress-timezone1

setting-wordpress-timezone2

Note: If your server still has PHP4, be sure to upgrade to PHP5 for better timezone support.
