One of my latest experience has been to show the correct date time to russian guys.

In order to manage the right local date for each country I have done the following 3 simple steps:

  1. Store the date in GMT format (Greenwich Mean Time)
  2. Declare the momentJS in my webpage
  3. Use the momentJS function to convert the date

Browser will do a right conversion



1) Date Time stored as GMT

I use the followin php function

$today = gmdate("Y-m-d H:i:s");  


in alternative your can use utc_timestamp, it release the gmt date time




2) Include the Momentjs in the head/head

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>


3) In the web page I use the moment javascript

moment.utc(params).local().format('DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm')


The browser will use the client local time to show the right time zone.
