Setting the correct timezone in your settings ensures that your site visitors are viewing the correct date/time in their own timezone. 

This is useful for things like online events, working with clients in different regions, using relevant date filtering and other date/time sensitive data.

NOTE: The default time zone setting for new sites is UTC.

How to set the timezone of your site:

  1. Open your Site Settings
  2. Go to Settings tab
  3. Scroll down to the Site Time Zone section
  4. Click Detect my timezone (or choose a time zone from the menu)
  5. Click Save Changes
  6. Publish your site
