Item8499: Date entry is still screwy
Current State: Closed
Released In: n/a
Target Release: n/a
I just recently tried to use the ActionTrackerPlugin
on a project but I found that the date entry is completely useless. Every time a page is saved it moves the dates back 2 days. This essentially renders the plugin useless as well. Task Item1187
discussed this problem but there didn't seem to be any resolution. I installed the latest version of the plugin but it still seems to be in effect.
Is there any hope to fix this?

Which time zone are you in?
Is your server running UTC?
What is the time related settings in Foswiki?
- 11 Feb 2010
Server is running EST, which is also my timezone.
is set to gmtime
is $day $month $year
Not sure what other foswiki time settings are relevant.

This is a bad bug in a good plugin. Makes it useless. I have this problem in 1.0.9. What else can us users do to get this fixed?

This and Item1187
are essentially duplicates.
FWIW, if I make the following change in Action.pm, things work better for me in PDT (UTC-7):
# Options for parsedate
#my %pdopt = ( NO_RELATIVE => 1, DATE_REQUIRED => 1, WHOLE => 1, GMT => 1);
my %pdopt = ( NO_RELATIVE => 1, DATE_REQUIRED => 1, WHOLE => 1 );
I make no representations that this is any kind of fix.

Turning off the GMT flag as above seems to have corrected operation for me. At least the dates do not shift every time the page is saved. I will start using it again and see if it stays fixed.

Have now been using actiontracker successfully with patch above applied for a couple weeks. At least on my setup it works great.

The 05 Nov 2010 version I just released should have fixed this issue so you do not need to hack the files anymore
