newsflash article not showing op
« on: December 15, 2010, 19:21:54 pm »
New articles displayed via the module newsflash do show up exactly
after one hour. But only in sites using Virtuemart. Does the use of
virtuemart alter the timestamp?

Example:
Real time is 21.32 hours UTC+1
Using a normal menu function the timestamp becomes:
(a.publish_up = '0000-00-00 00:00:00' OR a.publish_up <= '2010-12-14
19:32:58' )
So there is a difference of two hours.
Using a virtuemart module the above string alters to:
(a.publish_up = '0000-00-00 00:00:00' OR a.publish_up <= '2010-12-14
20:32:58' )
Now the difference is only one hour, but now the new article is
showing up immediatly after publishing.

This happens on various sites using Virtuemart and not on sites
without it. So thats why i got the idea that VM is
altering the way Joomla determines the time on a specific moment.

That is curious. It surely needs an investigation. I'll report back whenever i'll find something.

Hi Francesco,
Did you have any luck so far finding an answer?
Kind regards, Cornelius

Sorry not. It's been a very busy few weeks, i'm going to have a look at this (and many other reports) in this coming week.

@cornelius123:
i was not able to reproduce the error. On a specific site, with or without VirtueMart, timestamps are not changed. Did you try on a brand new site? E.g.;
1. install Joomla
2. set up a Newsflash module
3. show timestamps from Newsflash module
4. install VirtueMart
5. show timestamps from Newsflash module

Please let me also know Joomla and VirtueMart versions.
