  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <!--ducktime--> wherever you need the current Unix Timestamp in your content. <!--ducktime+value--> and <!--ducktime-value--> can also be used to generate times in the past or present based on the current timestamp (value
    must be an integer).


My timestamp isn’t appearing. What gives?

Make sure there’s no spaces in your Insert Markup, and that ‘ducktime’ is written in lowercase.
