Widgets for blogs: 4 – world time

• General background: The gigya shortcode 3 – widgets.
• Paste shortcode into text widget or html post/page editor. For suitable dimensions check my posts on sidebar width and post/page width.
• Some of these widgets may not display correctly in Explorer – use at your own risk (till Explorer learns to behave, or till users learn not to use Explorer).

  4. Panos,
    Sorry to go OT, but do you know much about Icecast? I set up a source client as a “beta” and broadcasted “web radio” all day today. Ideally, I’d love to fashion a widget/player for my blogpage. At the very least I can host it elsewhere and link to it. Curious if you’ve looked at it.

  5. @djeddieo: I don’t know anything at all about Icecast. I’ll look into it in due time.

  6. Hi Panos. I’ve been searching my brain, trying to remember widgets I’ve seen that I really, really wished I could have on my blog. I finally realized that what I’ve admired more than anything else on other blogs are those neat little “Quote of the Day” widgets. I tried doing a search for them, thinking that I could ask for your help if I found one I liked.

    Unfortunately I got way more results than I anticipated, and the few I liked turned out not to be free. Do you know of any that are both free and will work with the gigya shortcode? Have you considered doing a post on widgets like this?

  7. @IM: Yes, I’ll do a post with such stuff too. In the meantime, please link to a couple of widgets you liked so I can try find a similar free one.

  10. Hi Panos, I was just about to put this on my blog, it looks so cool but… A small thing…..London time should maybe be renamed Greenwich Mean Time. The time in London right now is an hour ahead, as we are on BST.

    As Wiki puts it : ‘British Summer Time (BST) is the civil time during the summer months in the United Kingdom during which the clocks are advanced from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)[1][2] by one hour. The British Summer Time period begins on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday of October. Though initially popular after its introduction in 1916, the practice now divides opinion.”

  11. Hi,
    Those widgets aren’t mine so I can’t do anything about that!
    You could add one of the clocks you can find here (all configurable):

  12. I realised that after I had left the comment, and looked at the widgets properly. Apologies!

    Posted by lostROsoul | September 3, 2011, 17:48
  16. Hi,
    I’m not familiar with Chatroll. If you have an account with them, show me the code(s) you can get and I’ll tell you. See point 4 here first:
