    I notice the time shown on my posts is incorrect compared to the present time. My ipad is set to the correct time but this does not seem to make a difference!
    For example the time right now is 20:36

    Your posting shows 15:36, so maybe this is a time zone thing?

    On my iPad, the time zones are to type in a city, and it will use it's time zone. If you are sure the time zone is correct, try restarting the iPad (power off then on).

    That is not correct, my time at the top of my ipad says at this moment: 21:04!

    What is your location? How does 21:24 compare to the actual time where you are?

    Try taking a screenshot and posting it. If the time on your iPad it set correctly, the posting time of your posts should match the time at the top of the screen, at the time the pst is made.

    No point in taking a screenshot ( even if I knew how to on ipad!) there is a constant 7 hour difference between shown actual time at top of screen & posted time shown in this forum! Present time is 21: 55

    Go to the iPF website on Safari. Find Settings/General Settings/Date and Time Options. You can enter your timezones there


    If you need any help, give a shout back and I'll do some screenshots for you.
