Version: 3.0 Display the time according to your blog via admin toolbar widget, a sidebar widget, and/or template tag.
Display the time according to your blog via admin toolbar widget, a sidebar widget, and/or template tag.
This plugin adds a dynamic functional clock to the top of all admin pages to show the server time for the blog. The clock automatically updates as time passes, as you would expect of a digital clock.
This plugin also supports a static mode which puts a timestamp string at the top of all admin pages instead of the dynamic clock. This static admin time widget is AJAX-ified so that if you click the timestamp, it updates in place (without a page reload) to show the new current server time.
Also provided is a "Blog Time" widget providing the same functionality as the admin widget, but for your sidebars. You may also utilize the plugin's capabilities directly within a theme template via use of the template tag 'c2c_blog_time()'.
NOTE: For the front-end widget, this plugin generates a timestamp and NOT a clock. The time being displayed is the time of the page load, or if clicked, the time when the widget last retrieved the time. It does not actively increment time on the display. A static version is also available for the admin widget, though by default the admin widget displays a dynamic clock.
This is most useful to see the server/blog time to judge when a time sensitive post, comment, or action would be dated by the blog (i.e. such as monitoring for when to close comments on a contest post, or just accounting for the server being hosted in a different timezone).
