  • Copy and paste {{subst:Template:Digital clock and date}} to use this template.
  • The clock must then be manually set to your local time, or another time of your choice, which is done per the following procedure:
1. Refer to the List of UTC time offsets article and find your geographic location
2. Edit the page where you have placed the clock, and where it states "offset=" within this template, enter the corresponding offset relative to your geographic location.
  • For example, to set the clock to the time in New York City, set the offset parameter to -4.
3. If you live in an area where daylight saving time is observed, additional adjustments to the offset parameter may be necessary for the clock to match your time.

This template does 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".
