At least to me, the forum clock is still on DST even though on my user preferences I have CST selected. I see nowhere that I can switch off DST. Is this something you have to do, Lake?

Thanks.

Our forum is set to CST & it's still wrong. I can't fix it. :roll:

I went into board preferences and changed this to No: Summer Time/DST is in effect:

It worked for me.

I fiddled with the admin settings but that didn't work. What DID work was to go to the User Control Panel (everyone has one) --> Board Preferences--> Summertime/DST in in effect--> check NO.

Sorry for that extra step you'll have to take to reset the clock for the forums but, as I said, my administering the forum clock internally did not work.
