I just made a personal sig like next : [1]. But I can't figure out how to make current time appear at the end of the text. (This templates is using {{{1|}}} for optional parameter: I'd like to have something like 20/Jul/2018 02:48 Korea over here.) Please have a look on the page above and give me some advice. Thank you.

Maybe something with magic words like {{SUBST:CURRENTDAY}}? --Plasmarelais 09:59, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
Wonderful. I replaced it with {{{1|{{LOCALDAY}}/{{LOCALMONTH}}/{{LOCALYEAR}} {{LOCALTIME}}}}} and it seems to work without problem. Thank you! Cafeinlove 10:31, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
But isn't it necessary to substitute into the values of the magic words? I don't know how you use your sig, but atm I'll always show the current time, dynamically. --Plasmarelais 10:40, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
I believe Magic words and Transclusions are automatically substituted in Sigs. - Tjcool007 (Talk / Contribs) 11:02, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
I have tried the substitution, but when I save the page, all the magic words get replaced with the real value(ex. subst:currentday -> 21). But it seems to work well without subst, you can see it on [2]. Cafeinlove 11:06, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
Ah finally no, I get realtime value with this codes. Is there an another way to have timestamp here? Cafeinlove 14:08, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
In the Preferences entry box for my sig, I put my sig template followed by the date/time with both substituted like this: {{SUBST:sigtemplate}} {{SUBST:#time:j M Y g:i A|-8 hours}} Pacific
Works for me. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 21 Feb 2011 12:39 PM Pacific
I put {{SUBST:User:Cafeinlove/sig|{{SUBST:#time:j/M/Y G:i}}}} for a test. It works pretty well, unless I got the timestamp doubled like next. what could possibly go wrong?

Your sig is adding too much text, make sure you have two sig pages. For mine I have User:Godisme/Sig2 which contains the code of my sig. Then I have User:Godisme/Sig which just had{{User:Godisme/Sig2|{{{1|''Predated ''}}}}} my preferences contains {{SUBST:User:Godisme/Sig|{{SUBST:#time: H:i,n/j/Y}}}}. To avoid the double timestamp just use three tildes instead of 4--GodPray  01:52,2/22/2011 

Thank you for helping. I gotta try like you said. Cafeinlove, 02:01, 2/22/2011
I think now it's done properly. Thank you to all of you!  Cafeinlove msg 2/22/2011, 02:19
