Add clock to footer


Well-known member
Simply put, this adds the date and time to your footer. Clicking it will take you to the Preferences page, where you can change the time zone.
(Note: I'm hoping to adjust it to make it to show just the time once I figure out that code.)

To install, go to <ul class="footerLinks"> in the "footer" template, and add the following code before the </ul> tag.

<li><a href="{xen:link 'account/preferences'}"><div class="time muted">{xen:datetime $datetime, 'absolute'}</div></a></li>
Then...you're done. :D

Please note that this is my first modification (ever), so if there's something you notice that can be made easier, let me know. :)

I'd actually recommend against putting the current date/time anywhere on the page, for reasons I won't get into right now. Let's just say it might disadvantage you at a later date.

Don't all computers already have a clock either in the menu bar or task bar?
Not sure you why anyone would need to see the server time.

I once had a review to post but it had an embargo on it, so I waited until the embargo time to post it - but I never noticed that the server time was off by a few hours, so it looked like I broke the embargo - and the company who gave me the game to review weren't happy
