PHP Question

Is it possible to get the timezone from your visitor with php?

Or can this only be done with javascript (client-side)?

Answer

There are two ways to do this. The most obvious way is to use Javascript since it lives in the client world. The other way is to have users specify their time zone when they register for your site and then you can do some back end manipulations based on GMT to get the actual time they visited. This of course has the flaw that the user can put in the wrong time zone.
