Comments in Your Timezone!

Want to change that pesky GMT timezone on your comments page?

  1. Apply the Customising the layout of your Comment Headers tutorial.


  2. Find the line which reads:
    function EntryPage::print_comment(Comment comment) {


  3. On the line beneath it, paste the following, configuring as you see fit:

  4. #################################################################### #GMT -- Timezone fix ####################################################################
    var string comment_date = $comment.time->date_format(); var string comment_time = $comment.time->time_format(); var string comment_dayname = $comment.time->date_format("%%da%%"); var int comment_year = 0; var int comment_month = 0; var int comment_day = 0; var int comment_hour = 0; var int time_iso = 0; var int comment_min = 0; var int timezone = 07; #Offset from GMT in hours. (NO NEGATIVES!) If your offset from GMT is -0730, this value would be "07". var int timezone_min = 00; #Offset from GMT in minutes.

  5. Find the line which reads: <td colspan="2" align="left" style="white-space: nowrap"><strong>$date</strong> """; print $comment.time->date_format("long")+" - "+$comment.time->time_format(); """</td> and replace it with the following: <td colspan="2" align="left" style="white-space: nowrap"><strong>$date</strong> $tz_date - $tz_time</td>.


This code hasn't been fully tested for all sorts of things like leap-years and such, so if you notice any odd dates, please tell me!
