Time zone, culture and language settings

Applies to Infiniti v8.1 or later
Infiniti supports a sites default time zone, culture and language and as per user time zone, culture and language.

All date, time, language and number formatting in Infiniti is initially set to the server's settings. This may be changed in a number of ways:

  • Changing the setting for the site in Manage.
  • Passing in a parameter on the URL.
  • Setting them at a user level in Produce or Manage.

The priority for these settings are as follows:

  1. If a language/culture has been passed in on the URL, this will be used and after logging in, will change the current user's settings.
  2. If no language/culture has been passed on the URL, the user's settings will be used.
  3. If there is no specific setting for the user, the settings defined in Manage or the web.config will be used.
  4. Default settings on the server.

Time Zone defines the date and time retrieval.

Culture defines date and number formatting.

Language defines what text is displayed in the UI.
