How do I offset the time for my time zone? I am central and my server time is an hour ahead of me.
Well one way is to simply subtract an hour (or to be more exact 3600 seconds.) Here is an example:
$b = time () - 3600;
print date("D, F jS G:i a",$b) . "<br>";
You can add or subtract any amount of seconds to the time function while you create it's variable. This let's you offset minutes, hours, days or even years.
