Put a clock on your Protopage

UPDATE (17 May 2006) : Clocklink have modified the way their source code works, and are now using code that is incompatible with Protopage. We will post a message here when we have implemented a work-around.

As you’ve previously seen in our video tutorial, it’s possible to put all sorts of content into HTML sticky notes.

A website called ClockLink provides some fantastic clocks that you can use on your Protopage.

To get started, go to the ClockLink gallery and find a clock that you like.

Once you have decided on a clock, click the View HTML Tag button underneath it.

Choose your timezone and the size of the clock from the menus, and then copy the source code for that clock to the clipboard by selecting it, right clicking it and choosing Copy.

Now, go back to your Protopage, add a sticky note, and choose HTML at the bottom of the edit window. Now right click in the edit window and choose Paste.

Click Save Changes and you’re all done!

    P.S. If you want to make the clock even smaller than the Size setting at ClockLink allows, you can change the width= and height= values in the HTML code youself to smaller values.

    Nice (again!), but does it have to be a sticky note? Can’t you guys make it a widget? It would look way better without the panel-ish looks and background. Speaking of background, could you make it possible to choose more colors? I mean there is a handful of colors to choose from but how about custom colors? Or atleast add white to choice you give us :-))

    Hi works great. One thing I noticed was that I had to select html before I pasted in, rather than after. Which is per your instructions. I just thought it was curious!! Thanks so much for the new feature.

    I’ve used the clocklink clocks to create my own little “world time” window with my local time and that of my boss on the East US coast.

    Another tool that I’ve added to my Protopage is information from my LAST-FM account.

    It would be great to have an option for sticky notes to auto-hide their title bars, scroll bars, and backgrounds when the mouse is not over them.

  6. Mellissa Says:

    Can we have a calendar widget? Or even a link to a place like this that would let us have current calendars show all the time in a sticky note window?

    Got the code embedded but it’s not displaying anything, just the outline of the bar (I chose a countdown clock).

  8. GC Says:

    Great Stuff! Is there a calculator that can be embedded the same way?

  9. Andrew Says:

    c4a3I think that when Galio is picked, it’s to enusre that you will have a solid standing vs. whatever the opposing teams middle may be. Kassadin and Morgana are very strong middle champions in middle lane and provide good presence vs other casters, but, Galio is good vs all those as well as anything else. I find when I play Galio, I AM the presence in the middle lane. I can provide excellent harassment as well as survivability. As long as your good with tossing a gaze down range, you should have no problem commanding your lane. The only problem I can foresee is if you come across a champion like Gragas, where he acts almost exactly as Galio. Both provide 2 pokes, a heal/damage reduction and a AOE ult with damage and placement (Almost a reverse ult).Speaking of this though, if you had the option I would pick a Gragas over a Galio simply because of a higher AP scaling and damage output late game, and Galio’s ult CD is kinda high with the high possibility of being interrupted right quick, as would frequent happen in games over 1500.Long story short, if your looking for this type of middle presence, pick Gragas.b4
