Description Lejonel 2012-02-26 11:39:19 UTC
Search results on Special:Search displays time of last edit using UTC, at least on Commons where I have different user preferences, and logged-out on sv.wikipedia which otherwise uses CET.
I think this time should be displayed using user preferred time. That will make it consistent with the same time displayed at the bottom of articles and in page histories.

I think it should be easy to fix by changing line 649 of SpecialSearch.php[1] from:

 $date = $lang->timeanddate( $timestamp ); 


 $date = $lang->timeanddate( $timestamp, true );

See Bug 19992.  Fixing this in the way you suggest would probably mean caching problems and won't happen.

Maybe user time is difficult because of caching. I did not think search results were cached.

But if user time is not possible, wiki default time would be better than UTC. For example CET at Swedish Wikipedia, and EET at Finnish Wikipedia. That will make the displayed times consistent for loggedout users and users with the default time preferences.

I will try reopen this bug and change it to display wiki default time.

Search results pages aren't cached in squid like you're suggesting.
