Just a quick simple request. On the Clock option, allow for a customization to display the day of the week (Monday, Tuesday, etc.)

Hello rdflesher,

Thank you for the suggestion! I will forward this request to the Development department.

In the mean time there is a way to display the day of the week and more.

Start off by creating a clock region. Then go to the Time Format field and select Custom. You will notice that a new field will appear to the right. In this field you are able to customize date using PHP functions.

For instance if you were to put: "%A %I:%M %p" it would show up as "Friday 1:27 PM".
%A = Full name of the day.
%I = Shows the hours in a 2-digit 12-hour format.
%M = Minutes represented in 2-digit format.
%p = Upper-case AM or PM depending on the time.

The following links contains more information including many more formats you can use:

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Kind Regards,
Viktor

Awesome - this was exactly what I was looking for - just didn't see it in the custom options. Thanks.
