In php programs, I have for a long time used this:

date_default_timezone_set("America/Los_Angeles");

To get the date / time in Pacific Time, USA. Other parameters for US Central, etc.

I am doing some custom pages on a word press site; it does not seem to work.

I seem to get GMT.

Does that not work in WordPress?

The site is hosted at WPEngine. Could that be the problem? I think they operate their servers on GMT

Of course I can "manually" convert to Pacific Time by adding 8 hours.
