ISSUE SUMMARY:

How can I make the default timezone selection when adding an event the one I need?

Hi,

here the steps:
copy /components/com_community/templates/jomsocial/layouts/events.forms.php
to
/templates/rt_ambrosia/html/com_community/layouts/events.forms.php
create that folder if not exist
edit that file (new location), at line 387
find this code

$defaultTimeZone = isset($event->offset) ? $params->get('timezone') : $systemOffset;
changing it to
$defaultTimeZone = isset($event->offset) ? $params->get('timezone') : JFactory::getConfig()->get('offset');
if ($defaultTimeZone == null) $defaultTimeZone = JFactory::getConfig()->get('offset');

with this override method, the changes will not disappear at jomsocial upgrade.

FYI:
documentation.jomsocial.com/wiki/Customizing_Template

copy the original - unedited file - to the directory you instructed, same old behavior (as expected) and no new problems. Editing the newly copied file as instructed produces:

0 syntax error, unexpected '&'
