Joomla how to change article time stamp in JA Purity II template

Because Joomla does not support Daylight Savings Time or any Timezone that adjusts for Summer and Winter time etc. I wound up first specifying another Timezone just to get the correct time displayed. Then I realized that would be wrong too.

So I wanted to delete the time from the article date/time stamp so I did this:

Edit the following files:


I replaced
LC2 with LC3 and vooop no more incorrect time, just the date.

article->created, JText::_('DATE_FORMAT_LC3')) ?>

Joomla 1.5.15

Daylight Savings Time not supported!

Akeeba (was JoomlaPack) backup and restore. Free opensource. Awesome package. Restore not as obvious as Backup.
Spent approx 15+ hours trying to restore until I figured out
that the password in configuration.php that comes with Akeeba needs to be updated with the
mysql database password from the target joomla installation's configuration.php file.
