I'm on a fresh installation of XOOPS 2.3.3 and extcal 2.2.2 in a PHP 5.3.0 and MySQL 5 environment.

extcal brings an error in all different views (week-list, month-list, year-list, week-calender, ...). As example the week-list:

Warningdate() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Europe/Berlin' for 'CEST/2.0/DST' instead in /home/.../modules/extcal/week.php on line 18

If i change lines 18-19 in week php from
$year = isset($_GET['year']) ? intval($_GET['year']) : date('Y');
$month = isset($_GET['month']) ? intval($_GET['month']) : date('n');
$day = isset($_GET['day']) ? intval($_GET['day']) : date('j');


to
$year = isset($_GET['year']) ? intval($_GET['year']) : date_default_timezone_set('Y');
$month = isset($_GET['month']) ? intval($_GET['month']) : date_default_timezone_set('n');
$day = isset($_GET['day']) ? intval($_GET['day']) : date_default_timezone_set('j');


the error is gone, BUT i don't get todays date! Calender view starts in the year 1999!

What's going wrong here?

I played around a bit and changed back to PHP 5.1.10 for the moment. But for further compatibility to upcoming PHP versions this should be fixed.

Hi!

I'm installing 2.2.2. on XOOPS 2.3.3., with PHP 5.3.0, and I'm having the same problem.

I have just add date_default_timezone_set instead of date, and the calendar starts at 1999...

How could I fix it without changing PHP version?

Thanks a lot, and my apologies by my english and programming skills...


Thanks in advance!

The use of date_default_timezone_set is wrong.
Undo these changes.

In stead try by editing mainfile.php and add
date_default_timezone_set('Europe/Brussels');

Choose the name of your time zone from here.

When a user is logged on, it could be advantagous to set the default timezone in relation to the timezone selected in his profile.
