Ticket #774 (open enhancement)

Better implementation of daylight saving time

  • Priority: normal

The actual system of DST implementation of FluxBB is a checkbox to go 1 hour forward in summer.
Is it possible to implement the automatic change by country (choice of the country name in a list) ?
This will prevent the time errors two times a year for all concerned users.
Most of OS do this automatically.

It's not that easy, the worlds is split in timezones, but not every country in 1 timezone uses daylight saving, so for some countries, it will work, but for others not.

  • Milestone set to 2.0-beta1.

We're not exactly an OS, but we'll still investigate wink

Good suggestion.
