    Date And Time Of Posts

    Why are posts from today registering with tomorrows date? I just commented on a thread, and now my post is the first in a thread that was started earlier today. I tried looking on my phone and computer and both showed the same thing. Anyone else seeing that?

    Possibly our host providers server had an issue with date/time...

    Current system time on our server matches my current time - Tue Apr 10 08:31:01 CDT 2018

    In VB posts within threads have a unique identifier (primary key) in the database consisting of a postid and is not time related although each post does have a system time timestamp called dateline.



    Displaying of those posts/threads is a sort option you set in your Settings->General->Thread Display Options. This is how it is done with a web browser, I am not sure how sorting works with tapatalk or even if it is relevant.

    I also am not sure how the tapatalk plugin interacts with VB - i.e. does it bypass and use tapatalk servers timestamp vs. local time...


    Are you both using tapatalk to post?




    Thread Display Options

    Can I change the order of posts?

    You have a choice over how you view threads. When you're in a thread, look at the top bar. On the right hand side you'll see 'Display Mode'. Click on this and it lets you change how posts are ordered.

    You have three choices:

    Linear Mode - posts are displayed chronologically, usually from oldest to newest. Posts are shown in a flat mode so that many posts can be viewed simultaneously. It is possible to change the ordering by changing your preferences in the User CP

    Threaded Mode - a tree is shown along with every post. This shows you the relationship each post has to the others. It's easy to see who responded to whom. Only one post is shown at a time. By clicking on a single post in the post tree, the page will show that post and all posts made in response to it.

    Hybrid Mode - This is a mixture of the linear and threaded modes. The post tree is displayed as in the threaded mode, but many posts are shown at the same time as in the linear modes.

    I dont know if it has done it with my posts...Im sorry if my above comment was confusing. I only meant to say that I also noticed Cody's post was showing at the top of the thread in taptalk.

    No worries..

    Clearly something got hosed with the timestamp

    select threadid, postid, username, dateline from post table where threadid=57034 order by postid


    |theadid|postid|username|dateline


    |57034|473278|CypressReef|1523336328 <-- 1st post for this thread
    |57034|473279|Bolo|1523337003
    |57034|473281|CypressReef|1523337496
    |57034|473293|Cody|1523329725 <-- dateline of this post is prior to dateline of 1st post

    I will see if I can correct it..
