How to set the time zone of WordPress blog?

Posted by

To set the time zone for your wordpress blog,

  1. Login to your blog and click Settings.
  2. Scroll down that page and you will see the Timezone field set as UTC.
  3. UTC time is set in London, UK. If you are in the UK, you should have a zero in the hour’s box.
  4. If you are in another country you need to change that number.
  5. For example, if you live in Paris, France your timezone is one hour ahead of UTC so you would put +1
  6. If you live in Boston MA you are 5 hours behind UTC so you would put -5
  7. San Francisco? -8
  8. Mumbai? UTC+5:30 hours
  9. You can find the time zones of many cities here: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock
  10. UTC time is on the bottom part of that page – all you need to do is work out the difference.
