Patch for version 4.2.2

Here's a fix for the birthday issue in the "Edit Profile" screen - for users whose timezone is earlier than GMT, the default birthday on the "Edit Profile" screen will always be a day before the date stored in the database. This can lead to unobservant users constantly moving their birthday backwards through time each time they edit their profile. The fix is quick:

In sources/ocf_members_action2.php, change:

Code

$default_time=is_null($dob_month)?NULL:array(0,0,$dob_month,$dob_day,$dob_year);
to

Code

$default_time=is_null($dob_month)?NULL:usertime_to_servertime(mktime(0,0,0,$dob_month,$dob_day,$dob_year));
This ensures that the timestamp for the birthdate is properly adjusted for timezones and will appear properly on the "Edit Profile" screen.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
