A new plugin with some help from Andrey. Part I --- Date Display Add a date/time display to your admin control panel nice and spiffy on the top line between the login and search. Updates every couple of minutes when the dash board does, otherwise static. The content is fully customisable to suit your needs. Part II --- Timezone The default method for setting a local time zone display is to edit site.php, the plugin allows you to set your preferred time zone from a drop down. It is then active in the Admin & user sides. Additionally if you enable the TimeZone brick in the profile users can have their local time displayed, by default it uses the main system one. Free, download here. If you use it I would ask that you register so I know usage, donations gratefully accepted.
