Thanks for being patient and helping to troubleshoot this. Now that we've identified this problem it can be addressed.

A few notes that might help:

The timezone setting within the forums is ONLY for the forums and does not have any affect on the FitDay application - Classic or 2.0.

FitDay Classic - we added a timezone setting in the user profile that addresses the issues that some have reported. This was added last Friday (12/16)

FitDay 2.0 Beta - does not rely on any settings. It uses your computers time and timezone settings to perform all date calculations. Some adjustments were also made to the Beta on Friday.

Our QA team has tested and confirmed that timezones are being handled correctly.

Please try out the new setting in classic and report any issues here. I will continue to monitor this thread.

Default FitDay Classic now stores TimeZone in Profile ... Try It !

FitDay Classic never had a concept of TimeZone Previous to Friday.

And especially for those far from GMT in the + direction it was annoying.

FitDay Classic now stores and responds to a TimeZone Correctly through a new preference at the bottom of the Profile Page.

FitDay Beta Always has and continues to respect the TimeZone as understood by your Browser, as set on your Computer.

Those people will "discrepancies" between Classic and Beta Dates will now be able to properly set their TimeZone in their "Classic" Profiles and Foods will be entered and Displayed on the Dates/Days indicated in both consistently.

This has been corrected.

Here's the problem I think. Notice the setting is for Pacific? I select EST, save, and it keeps defaulting back to PST. I have tried it several times with different zones, and each time it defaults to PST. I think this setting, which resides within the Classic interface, which is screwy right now, is the setting that controls the Beta. Anyway, that's what I'm guessing at this point. Because I'm confused as well.

Test Nope. I am set to my time zone= pacific standard time =gmt8 in classic mode under my profile. My computer shows 11.38 and I have no wrong date issues in beta so that's fine its just when the time posts in the forums it's one hour ahead. Weird but doesn't effect my use of the program I asked hubby to check my computer as I am not the most computer literate person he said the computer is showing accurate date,time and time zone so let me know what you think. Love the new beta by the way.

OK, FitDay Beta works OK now for my time zone (GMT +3).

I have one new issue though, when I log into FitDay it starts in FitDay Beta, but when I go to Forums FitDay switches to FitDay Classic and stays in Classic.

Thanks,

Aranki

If the date is in the URL (?_a_Date=1324339200.) when you save your profile (or navigating from page to page), the application's current date will not automatically change.

This setting does not have any affect on the forums and is ONLY for determining the date when you first log in.

The forums are not part of the beta and therefore must link back to classic (for all other users that are not in the beta). We have a solution for this that we will be deploying soon. For now, it is best to open the forums in a new tab.

Love to hear the good wishes on FD Beta ...

Yeah, FD Beta never had any problems with Time Zones.

FD Classic never addressed Time Zones _at all_ before Friday ... 12/16/2011 ... and we got it right on ...12/19/2011 ...

They were always off ... especially annoying in GMT + countries like Australia ... now they will be consistent, but FD Classic will never be "Perfect" on the issue of Time Zones.

vBulletin ... which is the software running the Forum is a whole different subject, separate from FD Classic and FD Beta!!

Love it, that y'all care about FitDay !!!

Speaking of vBulletin, do you know if/when it will be updated?

Also, any possibility to get skins? They're very inexpensive and would give us a nice facelift here.
