.ics Time Zone Conflicts

For our site, we currently manage events for DIFFERENT time zones. The events are all created with the standard start time of each event as it pertains to a particular city but the following occurs:

When I create an event with a start time of 9am – 3pm, a person who downloads the .ics file on the west coast would get the file importing as 6am – 12pm when the event is actually 9am – 3pm

Is there a way to correct this? I did take a look at the other threads but majority of those other concerns out there relate to events hosted locally. I’m looking for something that would work nationwide for various times zones.

Hi jsbruner,

The one solution I’m aware of that would work nationwide for various times zones is to use WordPress multisite, and have one site for each timezone. This is because WordPress allows setting only one timezone per site.

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the response. I’ll consider this an option but not sure how the management of events would be handled with event espresso or am I overthinking it?

The management of events could still be handled with Event Espresso. Multisite allows for admin accounts that can access all sites in the network.

The main difference is each zone will have its own list of events, and along with those their own lists of attendees specific to the events in that zone.
