Timezone display


WE would like to change the way time zones are displayed, rather than, for instance ‘US/Central’, we would want to display’ GMT-5’ or ‘CT’ or similar.

Is there any way to do this ?– is it just a configuration change, or a database table update?



AFAIK using explicit “GMT-x” timezone names is discouraged (it’s very confusing with DST for example). What’s your usecase for them? Pretty much everyone uses city-name-based timezones nowadays (and I think those are included in the list).

That said, we simply take the timezone list from the pytz library and have no plans to make this overrideable.

ok mate - thanks for your reply - it was a user saying the names were confusing ! lol
