vB3.5 Local time and date in post and profile
Version 1.0.1
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This product will add the local time and date of users in the posts and profile. That way you will know what the time and date is where they are located. I use this on my site so I will have an idea if it is the middle of the night, where they are at, or daytime. With your users living in all corners of the globe, this hack is a nice gauge of the different time zones without having to figure out each one in your head.

Credits:
Thanks goes out to KirbyDE for pointing me in the right direction for the profile time and helping to verify the code. And everyone who chipped in at vbulletin.org to help me figure out vB3.5's new ways of doing things. A special thanks goes out to Chen Avinadav for making the first local time hack for vB2 and allowing me to release it for vB3 and vB3.5.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release
Version 1.0.1 --Fixed time where it didn't show right for many people. Thanks to Kirby for the fix.

lol, actually maybe I spoke to soon or it's probably something on my end, but the times are 4 hours earlier than they should be.

Make sure your Default Time Zone Offset in the Date and Time settings in the vBulletin Options is set at your true server time.

They are the same unless DST is messing it up.

Seems to work when using ENGLISH,
but it gives me weird percentage things when I switch to KOREAN (my default language pack):

Local Time: %0:%Aug %p
Local Date: %24-%08-%2005
:/

thoughts suggestions?

hmmm...
very useful, but I have to uninstall for now.

I got the wrong time too. (it SEEMS to be adding the forum default time and the USER CP settings time).

also, as I said, above it seems to break when using a different language pack (important for me cause I have a multilanguage site.)

but DEFININTELY will install again when that get sorted out. good idea!! ^^
