Why don't my journal entries show the correct date or time? Can I use 12-hour time?
If the time on your entries is incorrect, there are several steps you can take:
- Clock Problems: Check that your computer's clock (date, time, and time zone) are all set correctly. LiveJournal uses information from your computer's clock to set the times on the Post an Entry page.
- Autocomplete: Your browser may have used autocomplete to fill in entry date and time from a previous entry. Consult your browser documentation for instructions on clearing this information.
- Incorrect Time Value: You have dated entries in the future due to an incorrect time value error.
You can then edit the entries
where the date or time is incorrect.
The Post an Entry
page uses a 24-hour clock, so "8:00" is 8AM and "20:00" is 8PM.
If you prefer a 12-hour clock, you may wish to try certain journal styles or downloadable clients
that display entry time with a 12-hour clock. For more information on a specific client, consult its documentation or its menu options.
