I need a simple script to add the time to one of my sites. Does anyone have one I could use?

If can use SSI on your page you can drop the time in simply with this:

<!--#config timefmt="%H:%M" --> <!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL" -->
it will give time like: 12:30

There a whole host of switches to determine how the date displays. Nice summary here [htmlite.com].

Oilman,

I'm really clueless when it comes to SSI and inserting the script you mentioned. Does it have to be enclosed within <script language="">the script</script> and if so, what would it say? Thanks.

You enter the code, exactly as Oilman has it shown, anywhere on the page.

Marshall, the link oilman provided is really most useful. Gives you the very basics on SSI.
If it doesn´t work - try renaming your file to shtml. Many hosts require that extension. Spent hours scratching my head before I found out that one.

I already bookmarked the link. Doesn't surprise me about the SHTML extension. Thanks everyone.
