Live display shows UTC instead of configured time zone

Post by gcams » Sat Mar 14, 2020 10:34 pm

I'm not sure when this changed, but the "last update" time on the live-display always used to represent the local timezone (the Time Zone set in the Meteoplug control panel). However I noticed today that it is showing UTC instead of obeying the Time Zone setting.

Example - My config Time Zone is set to Australia/Melbourne

But my Live dashboard is showing time in UTC:

The time zone is correct however on the Meteoplug map (screenshot taken a minute later than above):
Annotation 2020-03-14 202747.jpg
Annotation 2020-03-14 202747.jpg (12.78 KiB) Viewed 110 times

Is it possible to correct this please? My site visitors keep thinking the data is old when it's actually current, just the wrong timezone.

Thank you.

Yes it's definitely not ideal, as folk think the data is out of date/old!
