Utech World Time

Description

Creates digital real time world clocks on your posts or pages using simple shortcode. The customizable clocks show the name and current time of the location of your choice.

  • The clocks display the current time, even if the user’s computer clock is wrong.
  • Automatic adjustment for Daylight Saving Time
  • All major time zones supported
  • Customizable and easy to use with shortcode

Quick Start

  • Put the following shortcode anywhere on your post or page to create a GMT/UTC clock:

    [worldtime]  
    
  • Use the ‘places’ parameter to specify the clock’s time zone:

    [worldtime places="Paris"]  
    
  • List several places separated by a comma. This will create multiple world clocks in a stack (currently maximum 6)

    [worldtime places="Rome, New York"]  
    

The name of the location has to match exactly with a name in the list of the locations. For a complete list of all locations visit

Please note currently there are only up to 6 clocks supported in a stack. Also please limit the total number of clocks per page to 6, see below for further details.

What else you need to know

This plugin utilizes services provided by TimeAndDate.com and is brought to you with their friendly permission.

TimeAndDate’s condition of use stipulates a maximum of 6 clocks per page. In future this limit will be removed however for now it is important to stick to it as each clock creates a connection to their server (and ours). TimeAndDate also requires a separate link to their site if more than two clocks are used.
