User's Local Time and Date in Postbit and Profile for vB 4
Version 1.0.0
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This product will show the local time and date of users in their posts and profile. That way, you will know what the time and date is where they are located. I use this on my site so I will have an idea if it is the middle of the night, where they are at, or daytime. With your users living in all corners of the globe, this hack is a nice gauge of the different time zones without having to figure out each one in your head.

Note: This will also show the correct time and date of the poster to guests. You do not have to be logged in to know what time it is in someone else's world.

Credits:
Thanks goes out to Andreas for pointing me in the right direction for the profile time and helping to verify the original code. And thanks goes out to Chen Avinadav for making the first local time hack for vB 2 and allowing me to release it for vB 3, vB 3.5, vB 3.7 and now vB 4.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release for vB 4

Installation Overview:
----------------------------
1 Product XML (4 Plugins, 2 Phrases and 2 templates)

Installation Instructions:
-------------------------------
Go to your Admin CP
Scroll down to 'Plugin System'
Click 'Manage Products'
Click 'Add/Import Product'
Click the 'Browse' button, and locate the product-boofo_date_time.xml file on your computer
---------------------------------------------------

Done!
Enjoy!

Great mod, but the Local Time & Date fields keep duplicating themselves in the postbit several times...

It works fine with the default skin, which is what I use. You have a custom skin I take it?

↑ Right; I presume that I'll need to do some HTML-magic on my custom skin?

It looks like you might have to. What postbit are you using? The legacy?

Yup, the PostBit Legacy; I've been needing to do this for a few other mods too, so it's old news to me. I'm still getting the hang of editing those templates, but I guess that I'll need to put the code for this mod somewhere in the PostBit Legacy template

Look in the xml file and you will see that I use a template hook in the postbit_legacy template. Just look for that hook in the template of the custom skin and see what is going on there.

Great plugin - Thank you.

One problem for a newbie here... IŽd like to change the text "Local Time" to "Current Local Time", but have not been able to find anywhere to change it.
Apreciate the help - Thank you.

Edit: Located it in the .xml file, so uninstalled, changed text in .xml and reinstalled again ! Works like a charm - Thank you.
