    I’ve configured my timezone correctly as “New York” in WordPress’s Settings > General. It shows me the UTC time and my current time, which is five hours behind. This is as expected, great.

    However, all activity shows as 5 hours old.
    Is there a setting that I am missing that I need to adjust?

    Peter – did you change your timezone settings after creating the content? Do you still get the problem on new content?

    I found the problem. I changed the timezone in wordpress settings only. I did not notice that I also had to change in General Intranet Settings as follows:

    Changed from Time Zone: U to Time Zone: America/New_York

    Problem Solved!

    Part of the confusion, I suppose, is that I did not notice “U” to mean something, and furthermore, http://www.php.net/manual/en/timezones.php did not have single character codes.
