Linking to The World Clock

Tips and Tricks

Linking to the Personal World Clock

It's generally a bad idea to link to your Personal World Clock at http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/personal.html because it is personal - other people will not be able to see the cities you have and it will only work from your own computer.

Instead, please click on the "Linkable version of this personal clock" link you will find on your personal clock, and use that address for your link instead so that it will work for other people as well:

<a href="http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/custom.html?cities=54,111,166,196,215,248"> Time in some selected cities</a>

Linking to the Fixed Time World Clock

If you have some live radio show that is about to happen, a website you are about to open, a chat that is about to take place, and you want to inform people about when it will start, you can link to the Fixed Time World Clock, which will show current time around the world when your event begins.

  1. First you go to The Fixed Time World Clock - setup.
  2. On that page, you select the city and local time the event begins.
  3. Click on "Show Fixed Time" to generate the wanted list of cities.
  4. Copy the URL in the Location field (such as: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=...)
  5. Now you can copy that URL into your html-document. Be sure to get the whole address into one line or it will probably not work.

Making long URLs shorter

Some addresses/URLs on timeanddate.com may contain many parameters and be quite long. These URLs can cause trouble if sent via email as they will break into several lines for some mail clients. For this purpose, a "Short URL" service is available on most pages, look for a link labeled "Create short URL to this page" near the bottom of the page.

Use of address in other media

If you want to publish the address in your newspaper, magazine, TV or radio program, you may want to read these recommendations.
