This is easy with Connections and the free Local Time extension. Take a moment to install and configure it now. It only takes a few steps. The most important step is settings up the Google Maps Time Zone API. Do not skip over this step. When finished, come back here.
That was the hard stuff. To display the local time, first navigate to the WordPress Widgets admin page. Next, find the Local Time widget and drag and drop it to the desired sidebar. That’s it, there is nothing more you have to do. The widget will display automatically on the entry’s profile/detail page.
The widget provides you with many options which you can use to customize the display. I recommend you use the default settings. However, feel free to tweak.
In conclusion, displaying the local time is simple and intuitive. Therefore, you can quickly add this information, providing more value to your visitors.
