|How Time Zones Work on Xanga...|
The Xanga Community has members from almost every different time zone on the
planet! We've made it easy for every member to set their Xanga Sites to use
their own local time zones.|
Setting Your Own Time Zone
To set your time zone, just sign into your Xanga Site and click the little "Account
info" link in that first box on the left. On that page, you'll see a
pull-down menu with all of the world's time zones. Just choose your time zone
and click "Save Changes".
If you live in a time zone that uses daylight savings, just check the box and
we'll "automatically adjust for daylight saving changes" for you!
