How to Add an Automatically Updating Date to your Webflow Site

Memberscripts needed




Why/When would you need to Add an Automatically Updating Date?

  1. Display a friendly dynamic welcome message to your site visitors.
  2. Build a better rapport with your users.

It’s always a good idea to build a friendly rapport with your users and one simple way to help with that is by displaying a dynamic welcome message on your site.

In our case, we’re going to look at how you can build a dynamic message based on their date and/or time of day. All it will do is check the user’s date and time and figure out what it needs to display, simple as that.

Adding an automatically updating date to a Webflow site

To add an automatically updating date to your Webflow site, we’re going to use MemberScript #73 – Display Date & Time. Follow the link to get the code you’ll need to add to your page and watch a video tutorial on how to set everything up.

Setting it up

The first thing you’ll need to do is add a heading or a text block depending on what exactly you need and style it however you want.

Then, go ahead and add a span around the dynamic part of your text. For example, if you want to display a message based on the time of day, you could say “Good time of day,” where “time of day” is the dynamic part that will display the actual time of day, so on the live site it would just say “Good morning/afternoon/evening.”

Now select the span around the dynamic part of the text and add one of the following attributes to it, based on what you want displayed:

  • ms-code-date=”day”
  • ms-code-date=”time-of-day”
  • ms-code-date=”month”
  • ms-code-date=”year”
  • ms-code-date=”time”

Making it work

Now that you’ve got the welcome message set up and you’ve added the appropriate attribute, all you need to do is add the MemberScript #73 custom code to your page, before the closing body tag.

If you want to change the formatting of the date or time, feel free to tinker with the code as you see fit.


That’s everything, you can now go ahead and test the dynamic welcome message on your live site.
