Working With Timezones In Jekyll

October 14, 2015

I was working on implementing a subscribe in my blog when I realized that my timestamps were being factored from UTC, and not EDT/EST.

If you are experiencing the same thing, make sure you are setting your timezone offset in your blog posts Front Matter:

date: 2015-10-14 07:40:00 -04:00

Also, make sure you set your timezone in your _config.yml:

timezone: America/New_York.

Rebuild, and it should be good to go now!
