in the top bar of www.jamcalc.org/test.php, it shows the current date and time when you opened the site. the time is supposed to be set to GMT, but it doesnt look right.

here is the code i used:
<?php echo gmdate ("M d | Y");?>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Login Time: <?php echo gmdate ("H:i:s");?>GMT

How do you want it to look? I think you have the correct time there. Do you mean you want a different format?

hmmm ... Maybe I'm missing something. Right now it looks how I think you want it to look. I see ..

Login Time: 04:36:06GMT

I'm pretty sure that is correct. Also, your using H:i:s , which means it's already displaying in military format. When it turns 1 o'clock in the afternoon, your time should say 13:00:00.

Sorry if I'm not answering you properly, but it looks okay to me. Am I missing something?

well if its already displaying in military time and its 9:00 PM, then it should say 21:00:00GMT
according to how it is right now, its 4:00 AM (in the morning)

Ah ... that's why I don't understand what your talking about then. I thought it really was 4 in the morning right now. Are you sure it's 9:00 GMT right now?

Let me look a little deeper into your problem now.

According to greenwichmeantime.com, it's 05:00:00 (in the morning) GMT. Where are you getting 9:00 PM from?

Your GMT time on your site and the GMT time on greenwichmeantime.com's site correspond. I think your code is already correct. :)
