#36829 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Revisions "time ago" not correct when not in GMT

The revisions section of the page edit section says I last edited a page:

8 hours ago (May 13, 2016 @ 13:28:09)

However that is only a couple of minutes ago. The date displayed is the correct date and time according to the server settings (Perth, Australia) but the "time ago" is the offset to GMT rather than a couple of minutes.

I had a quick look at the function wp_prepare_revisions_for_js in
wp-admin/includes/revision.php, and it contains the line:

$now_gmt = time();

According to this is timezone independent. I think that might be the problem, but I've only been doing PHP for a few months so thought I would let someone else say what the correct fix should be!
