+-------[ Justin Dunsworth ]---------------------- | I am having difficulties with time zones and rendering proper times/dates. My | time zone is GMT-6 (CST)... mysql reports the proper time/date, running | <dtml-var expr="e.strftime('%c')"> shows Zope has the right date, running a | query straight from the SQLMethod shows the proper time in relation to the | field in mysql. However, when I try and run the variable in the dtml document | it gives the time in GMT+0. | ? | For example... in mysql I have "2009-12-23 10:41:06" as the? date of | the? record.? Running the SQL Method returns it as '2009/12/23 10:41:06 GMT+0' | -- So far so good but when I run <dtml-var comment_date fmt="%m-%d-%y %H:%M"> | in my document it gives: 12-23-09 04:41. | ? | I can get fmt=ISO (and other similar time functions) working and showing the | proper date/time but I'd rather have a little more control over how the time is | displayed. Is there any suggestions on what to do? I've looked? many places and | couldn't find the answer. | ? | I am running Zope 2.11.4-final, python 2.4.4, win32 | ?
using fmt / strftime on Zope DateTime strips the timezone info and converts to localzone before rendering, which is why your times are out by 6 hours... your distance from GMT. -- Andrew Milton a...@theinternet.com.au
