I am currently using Wordpress, and an element of user_registered returns the time of registration of the user. I have set the correct timezone, but don't know how to get the user_registered output to match my current time. So far, this is what I have.


    $users = get_users();

    foreach( $users as $user ) {

        $udata = get_userdata( $user->ID );

        $registered = $udata->user_registered;

        printf( '%s member since %s<br>', $udata->data->display_name, date( "Y-m-d H:i:s", strtotime( $registered ) ) );

echo('date below <br>');
echo date('Y-m-d H:i:s');

The date default timezone indeed changes the timezone (last echo) However, what I want to change is the output of user_registered. (which is the stored time).

How do I globally change the way the time is being displayed when called? In other words if I call for the date/timestamp through plugin or direct, it will always give me the output of America/Los_Angeles.

Thanks in advance. I'm a noob. FYI the echo and printf stuff is purely for temporary display. I want to change the way user_registered is rendered when called from plugin or direct.

If javascript or jquery is an option i'm all ears.


On the Settings > General page, find the section labeled Timezone. Select a city in the same timezone as you.
