Userbox documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

With this userbox you let everyone know what time it is at your place, simply by providing your time zone.

It makes use of the {{Current hour in time zone}} and {{Current minute in time zone}} templates, which automatically adjust the time according to daylight saving time (DST). Please refer to the documentation of those templates to see which time zones are supported. Instead of giving a time zone, an offset can also be given (see below).

Clicking the refresh icon will refresh the time by purging your user page.

UsageEdit

See below for examples.
{{User:Thayts/Userboxes/DST in user time zone |replace with time zone abbreviation or hour offset |replace with minute offset (only works if hour offset is used) |12h=no |24h=yes |dst=yes |place= |text=where this user lives |bg-c=#e2f2ff |border-c=#2475cd |text-c=#444444 |icon=File:Crystal Clear app clock.svg}}

Name Meaning
(1) time zone abbreviation[1] none any abbreviation supported by both {{Current hour in time zone}} and {{Current minute in time zone}} (e.g. EST) The abbreviation of your time zone. If dst=no, different types of abbreviations of the same time zone (e.g. CET and CEST) will produce different results. Otherwise (i.e. automatic daylight saving time adjustment is enabled, which is the default), the results will be the same and the abbreviations can be used interchangeably. yes[2]
or (1) hour offset[1] none any positive or negative whole number (e.g. -3, 1, 5) The hour offset from UTC time, given instead of a time zone abbreviation. Note that the time will not be automatically adjusted according to daylight saving time when using this option.
(2) minute offset 0 any positive or negative whole number (e.g. -30, 45) The minute offset from UTC+(hour offset) time. Has only effect when an hour offset is being used. no
