When a new user applies for an account, how does one set the timezone default from 'America/Denver' to 'UTC' timzeone? It's ok to allow the user to change the timezone to a preferred timezone. However, most of my users will be signing up from the UK. Is there a way to set the default to UTC rather than America/Denver?

  • r u using date module? i think there is an option to set default timezone.

Try visiting admin/config/regional/settings to set default timezones.

I've also created a module called Timezone Detect that will detect and set user timezones automatically using javascript.
