Whats News WP - Displayed Time Discrepancy

Feb 5, 2010 at 1:18 PM

I apologize for the duplication of this thread as I originally posted this in another thread as a reply but think that it got buried. Anyway...

I recently DL'd and installed the SmartTools web parts on my server to test them out. One of my site managers found them before I had tested them and decided to test them herself. She found that the displayed time in the Whats New wp was off by about six (6) hours. It looks like this issue has been raised before but I did not find a resolution.

Issue Details:

  • The regional settings on my server use US Central Time (GMT-6:00)
  • A test file was uploaded to document library and timestamped at 2:05 PM (1405)
  • The Whats News wp displays the time as 8:05 AM (0805). 6 hours negative

Has anyone else experience this discrepancy? If so, what did you do to correct it besides hide the column.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

I am having the same issue, has anyone found a fix for this?  It seems the webpart is using GMT
