I'm just noticing the clock timing of posts are behind -1.00 hour, not a great big issue and assume it just needs manually configured with the BST / DST time zones.

Apologies for pointing out "pernickity" O.C.D points .bounce

AMC, the clock times are set by the individual members within their profiles. ;)

For the UK you should be on 'UTC Western European, Greenwich Mean Time'. Was the problem not that you'd got the tick box wrong for DST?

Hi Bernicarey, Cheers for responding,

The settings were set originally to GMT time zone but when I checked my postings they were 1 hour behind, so I now have changed to +1 Central European timezone

So, it's alive...kind of :lol:

There's a few things I can only do whilst the new site is live, so before I start spreading the news all over the web that the new site has arrived, I've given myself a week of tweaking the live site.

Have a look and let me know what you think...hopefully if you have more suggestions, I can tweak this week as we go :D

I still have to tidy up the blog pages, sort out the newsletter forms, user log in stuff etc.

Jack has been working flat out every night, all weekend every weekend for months setting up this new main site and it would be nice if some of you could please have a look and maybe throw a wee compliment his way. http://www.healthandsafetytips.co.uk/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Quiet appreciation sometimes needs a wee shout. ;) :director:

Thank you. .salut

Every single link has been manually checked, edited, programmed, reinstated, etc etc etc by Jack alone and all because he wants to help people keep others safe by providing this free site to everyone. (Now also user friendly on mobiles.)

JACK I APPRECIATE YOU.
