In the 7.5 version of PHP Nuke, I had to go through and change the time zone setting in 3 or 4 different locations as the forums and the various nodes I installed did not honor a universal time zone value. Any chance that Raven PHPNuke has remedied this problem such that the TimeZone can be set so the time for posts, news items, and other modules can represent the time consistently throughout the website?

Since RavenNuke is based on PHP-Nuke 7.6 at its core, the answer is "no".

Bummer, that was one of the biggest 'uhhgs' for me. I believe I had to modify the Time in 4 or 5 different locations before on the last version I was running. The other is the whole SQL injection problem. I'm no very little about PHP... is there no way to use prepared statements with PHP? If you were just sending values to the database and not constructing full on SQL statements, that would avoid all of the SQL Injection attacks.

That is odd, I can only think of Admin -> Preferences and Admin -> Forums -> Configuration. Where else did you have to change the timezone? Now, HOW the date/time is displayed could also be in a few places and maybe that was also a consideration.

Regarding the "prepared statements" comment, this is PHP-Nuke, so right now, it is still that. What RavenNuke becomes -- might even start anew with PHP-Portal -- who knows. But, it would take a ton of re-writing. Not something we're prepared to do right now in the near-term.

Not to mention, what about all the add-ons / hacks? These would all have to be re-written as well. It is just not practical. Over the years, the evolution of the patches, NukeSentinel, and now RavenNuke, things are a ton better now, security-wise, than before, but you are always only as good as your "weakest link" and that is usually is some add-on that is insecure.

I had to change the Timezone for the ShoutCast, the statistics (they didn't appear to honor the change), and the Dontations node (otherwise off by a full day). I believe there was one more place, but I can't recall it at the moment.

phpNuke doesn't define any timezone for modules, only the forums use the forum configuration settings. phpNuke uses the server time only

Ah, I see, you were including other non-core nuke modules in the count. Ok.
