When using the Blog feature under Tiki 14, if...:
...then, if the user works on a new blog post and uses the 'preview' feature, when the page reloads after requesting the preview, the Publish Date will be skewed by the difference between UTC and the inferred Local timezone.
The skew is also compounding; if 'preview' is used multiple times, the Publish Date can end up being quite distant from the actual date and time of the blog post.
I have related tickets 1579 and 4007 as they describe similar behaviour in the Banners feature; please feel free to un-relate if they are not pertinent.
Edit 2015-10-22: After demonstrating on show.t.o, it appears the skew may relate to the timezone of the underlying server, rather than what is being inferred by Tiki from the user. However, it is still the case that setting an explicit timezone alleviates the issue.
This can be worked around by:

Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
