GMT dropdown autoselect according to local GMT?

#1
[eluser]Tyler Diaz[/eluser]
If the topic title did not explain itself too clearly, what I want to do is: Take the date helper GMT dropdown and make it auto select the GMT that corresponds to what may seem as the default one. For example, my GMT is GMT-5. How could I make the dropdown be default selected at GMT-5?

I tried experimenting and searching but did not have much luck. Thanks in advance, Tyler Diaz.

You need to use UM5 to select GMT-5:
Code:
timezone_menu('UM5');

Check timezone reference table here - http://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-gui...elper.html

I understood that part, I have read the date helper past of the guide extensively.

But how would I make it auto select according to the GMT the user has. A case scenario would be supposing you live in Texas, and I live in florida - Both different time zones. When you see the dropdown it is auto selected to the Texas GMT and when I see the dropdown it is auto selected to the florida GMT.

I guess you need to use javascript to detect the user's timezone.
