WordPress Time Zone Problem

This article was written by in Uncategorized. 2 comments.

Here in the United States, most people should have turned their clocks back one hour this morning to revert to standard time. WordPress users will have to change their time zone in their settings to reflect the change. I live on the east coast of the United States, so I have to change my WordPress time zone setting from UTC-4 to UTC-5.

This is just a reminder for personal finance bloggers. If you want your posts to appear correctly on pfblogs.org or for new posts to reflect the correct time, you’ll have to make this change.

By the way, beginning with next year, daylight savings time is being extended by one month and will span from March to November.

Thanks for the tip — I need to go in and change it, I guess. Not to get too technical, but they’re extending by a week into November, and by three weeks at the front end by pushing the start back into March.
