Hi All,

The TimeZones allowed doesn't include any daylight savings options.
Is this a missing issue or is there any way to enabling the daylight timezones for the portal?

Thanks
Ben Starr

Hi William,

You can add additional time zones by setting the time.zones property in the portal-ext.properties file. As far as daylight saving goes I would think that it is dependent on the selected time zone (i.e. daylight saving will be activated/deactivated based on the daylight saving settings of the selected time zone). I don't think it is necessary to manually turn on/off daylight saving provided that the relevant time zone is available in the list.

Regards,

Ben

It seems because there are so many time zones that the Liferay team decided to only include a limited set of time zones by default. I do not believe that all of the default time zones include daylight saving (even though they may have the same offset as a daylight saving time zone). If you want daylight saving for a time zone you probably need to add the time zone yourself.
