How to change the Timezone in WordPress

There are a variety of reasons why you should change the timezone in WordPress.

One important reason is that we want all emails received from the site to include the time stamp in our time zone. Another reason is that several popular plugins, such as The Events Calendar, urge that we set the correct time in order for events to display appropriately.

Let’s begin by adjusting the time zone.

Go to the WordPress Dashboard’s Settings > General menu to set the timezone.

You will see a drop-down menu where you can choose your desired time zone. You can also select a large city inside your time zone.

Scroll down and click Save Changes to save the time zone after you’ve set the first day of the week.


The date format can also be customized.
