Hi! I'm running the latest MediaWiki 1.35. VisualEditor is up and running. I installed Linter and run update.php with no problems. I set up the timezone with $wgLocaltimezone, all cool. However when I create a talk page and sign a comment, the [Reply] button doesn't appear, see here

All debugging is on and there doesn't seem to be any warnings neither in the HTML output nor the console.

What could be wrong? Thanks for any help and for this awesome tool!

Something’s fishy with your time zone abbreviation, I think DT simply doesn’t recognize your comment as a comment. (This would explain why are there no warnings, reporting every line of text that’s not a comment would make no sense.) It expects the time zone to be the one of the time zone abbreviations (abbr field) returned by DateTimeZone::getTransitions, and -03 is quite certainly not a such “abbreviation”.

That was it, thanks so much for the sharp eye! I set $wgLocaltimezone = 'UTC'; and now it works fine. Before I had it set to $wgLocaltimezone = 'America/Argentina/Buenos_Aires'; which I believe is valid, but apparently not supported by DiscussionTools.
