Time discrepancy between widget/reality/entry

  1. I am in Chicago, CST.

    Server is in Pennsylvania, EST.

    Server time when this entry was submitted:
    Wed Feb 10 17:38:05 EST 2010

    Gravity forms "date_created" entry in the database:
    2010-02-10 21:38:05 which looks to be GMT

    On the dashboard, when I checked at 16:38 local time (CST) the last entry was 60 minutes ago (which matches up with reality - the form entry was made an hour ago). Screenshot:

    When I click through to the entry, the info box says:
    "Submitted on: February 10, 2010 at 9:38 am". Screenshot:

    The minutes are right but the hours are wrong.

    Any ideas why there would be a discrepancy like that?

    Thanks

  2. Interestingly, I added a note to this entry, and the time on the note is accurate (in local time):
    "added on February 10, 2010 at 4:36 pm" (58 minutes after submission)

  3. illinoisharley,
    Gravity Forms stores dates as GMT and converts them to your local time when displaying them (based on your WordPress time zone settings). It looks like you found a bug on the entry detail screen where that conversion is either not taking place, or being done incorrectly.
    I will take a look at it and schedule it for the next patch.

  5. illinoisharley,
    I was actually able to pinpoint the issue and have a new version with the fix. If you would like to give it a try, email me at alex[at]rocketgenius.com

  6. I installed the files you sent and the time difference between the widget and the single entry time is fixed. Thank you for that.
