Since the depreaction of gadgets I cannot use the new editor but I would like to. I think the only thing holding me back are two placeholders; the date and the time. I had them in two separate PH to make them more organized. I can add the time with the world clock but how do I add the date?

I would like something like "Friday, December 11"

I might suggest using the spreadsheet placeholder. You could use the formatting and calculation ability to get it to look however you'd like. My $0.02.

Hi William, we'll be providing a Time and Date Widget that can be used in the new Editor in the coming weeks. 

Thanks!

Hi William!

Our content team actually has work in their backlog for a clock widget. As of right now, the plan is for this Clock Widget to display the date as well.
