The event time zone field (new in CiviCRM 5.47) doesn't show up in the "new event" form. Impossible to store a new event to the DB, as the event time zone entry is mandatory.

Joomla 3.10.6 / CiviCRM 5.47

Where to configure the default time zone for events?
Why does the respective setting not show up in the event form?

Thanks a lot for your advice.

  • Does your site have a customized EventInfo.tpl?

  • Yes, it has a customized EventInfo.tpl. Does this have an impact on the backend/form?

  • The EventInfo.tpl form in the administration area has NOT been customized, only the frontend template.

  • In my test-environment with a completely new installation from scratch, the form is displaying as expected (with the timezone-field).

Finally found out, what was going on.
The extension "Advanced Events" is not yet respecting the new timezone setting.

In order to create/administer events, the extension has to be deactivated (not uninstalled).

Like this, everything works as expected.
