 > > How do I get bp_core_current_time() to know that the clock time is 4
 hours earlier than it thinks it is?
 > That's easy - there is a filter `'bp_core_current_time'` that you can
 use to change its output to whatever you want.
 > A more important question is why `bp_core_current_time()` is returning
 the wrong time to begin with. What time zone are you in? Is
 `current_time()` (wp-includes/functions.php) working correctly for you? If
 `gmdate()` is returning an incorrect time, then you might have a PHP
 configuration issue.

 We are in Time Zone "EST", "New York", "GMT-5"
 WordPress Settings:
 Timezone New York       UTC time is 2012-07-10 14:43:28 Local time is
 2012-07-10 10:43:28
 Choose a city in the same timezone as you.
 This timezone is currently in daylight saving time.

 PHP Settings:
 date/time support       enabled
 "Olson" Timezone Database Version       2009.13
 Timezone Database       internal
 Default timezone        US/Eastern

 current_time() returns nothing [from within the bp-core-functions.php

 gmdate('m/d/y g:i:s a') = 07/10/12 2:51:38 pm [that's not right]

 Finally, it can't be a PHP settings issue because the server I have WP/BP
 installed on has been running for years and we have thousands of PHP apps
 running on it. never had a date-time issue with any of them.
