Adding a clock in your blog

Someone asked how to add a clock to the blog, and I feel I should answer it in a post so that more will know about it. There may be more possibilities than this, but http://www.clocklink.com/ may be a good choice. Here is a screenshot of their gallery:

All you need to do is to chose the clock you want, click on "Get HTML". You will have to select your country/region timezone, and not all countries are listed. Mine wasn't , so what I did was to do a Google search for GMT Malaysia and found it is GMT + 8. So I selected that, highlighted the HTML, copy and paste into the HTML/Javascript Page Element, saved then drag it into the position I want. You can see an example of the clock in this demonstration blog Blogging Ideas. The clock is at the bottom of the left sidebar.

  2. Hi Marc,

    Thanks for the extra information, but the sites don't seem to be working well, otherwise I will test it out and add them in an update.

  6. i've tried to add a clocklink clock as an HTML element in my Blogger blog, but it never works right. When I change the time zone code, it just continues to show the same time as my computer and once the blog is open the hands of the clock freeze. Any idea why this is happening?
