    Datepicker Time Zone Adjustment Changes in U7.5 +

    Hi all

    I found an issue on this at Looks like it was fixed in 7.5.

    Could not find any documentation or further info on it. Anyone know more?

    What do you want to know? :-)

    The new functionality is super simple: the editor chooses the time in THEIR timezone and whatever date and time is chosen will be used to publish/unpublish the page.

    Example: you're in Denmark and you're setting content to be published at noon.

    enter image description here

    It will be published at noon, Danish time. But as it says under the picker: on the server it will be published at 10. This is because the server in this case is set to UTC, so when it's 10UTC, it will be 12 in Denmark.

    If there's no difference between the editor's local time and the server time then the "this translates to the following time" message doesn't appear under the picker.

    In short: the time the editor chooses is the time where unpublish/publish will happen, they don't have to calculate any more like they used to before v7.5.

    That's exactly what we want! We were gonna build this but will suggest an upgrade instead.

    It wasn't quite clear, in the issue tracker, if the calculation of the time diff was done as well as displaying a label - just needed to make sure.

    Thanks Sebastiaan
