Find user’s timezone with PHP and Ajax

In PHP on October 14, 2011 by patrellery


Here’s a simple function to find out what is the user’s timezone in PHP


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
if("".length==0){
var visitortime = new Date();
var visitortimezone = "GMT " + -visitortime.getTimezoneOffset()/60;
$.ajax({
type: "GET",
url: "http://domain.com/timezone.php",
data: 'time='+ visitortimezone,
success: function(){
location.reload();
}
});
}
});

and then on your php file:
<?php
session_start();
$_SESSION['time'] = $_GET['time'];
?>
