Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) date & time picker "NOW" issue Reply To: date & time picker "NOW" issue

  • Hi John

    it is being a long time since your last reply

    we have tried a different date and time picker but unfortunately it did not works as it should.

    now back to ACF date & time picker.

    we have installed the bellow code but again, we still having a problem with current time.


    we create a post at :19/09/2020 12:49 am

    but on the date & time picker it is: 18/09/2020 2:49 pm

    even so, the developer is completely lost and can not figure out what to do no more.

    any help would be much appreciated.

    the code:

    add_action( ‘acf/save_post’, ‘set_submit_time’ );
    function set_submit_time($post_id) {
    update_field(‘entry_post_date’, date(‘Y-m-d H:i:s’), $post_id);

    add_action(‘save_post’, ‘change_content’);
    global $post;
    global $wpdb;
    function change_content($post_id) {
    $datefield = get_post_meta($post_id,’entry_post_date’,true);
    $post_date = date(“Y-m-d H:i:s”, strtotime($datefield));
    $my_post = array();
    $my_post[‘ID’] = $post_id;
    $my_post[‘post_date’] = $post_date;

    remove_action(‘save_post’, ‘change_content’);
    wp_update_post( $my_post );
    add_action(‘save_post’, ‘change_content’);

    add_filter(‘acf/load_field/name=entry_post_date’, ‘my_acf_default_date’);

    function my_acf_default_date($field) {

    $field[‘default_value’] = date(‘Y-m-d H:i:s’);

    return $field;
