Template:Date and time templates

From Safer nicotine wiki
[edit] all subsections that follow:


These templates do not put a working clock on your page. The clock will not update the time on your screen every minute. Instead, it records the date and time that the page was most recently edited or purged.
If you want a clock that constantly updates, then go to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets and enable the Appearance item, "Add a clock to the personal toolbar that displays the current time in UTC and provides a link to purge the current page".
