How to format all dates and times into user's default local time zone?

Hello!

I have good idea. I want to style all dates and times within my site into user's default local time zone. So that date and time is correct for user's local time zone.

I know I can use <f:convertDateTime>. But is there any way to format all dates from one place without using <f:convertDateTime>?

Thank you!

Unfortunately, no. And unless the tag explicitly overrides it, the timezone will be UTC.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
