Config for clock not working



  • Hello folks,

    I know I am doing something dumb. Everything else is working, though my clock is not taking the config: { section. I am trying to change it to 12 hour format (for WAF) and remove the seconds and add a lowercase am/pm.

    Thanks for any suggestions and help!


    Here is my config file :

    And the console error is? Or possibly it could also be in 'pm2 logs '



  • @KirAsh4 When I hit `` for the console (which is what I assume you mean) I doesn’t give any errors. Everything is working fine. It shows all the data correctly, but the clock is in 24 hour format. It’s almost like it’s just omitting the config section, and moving on. Though it says "No helper found for the module: clock. But I am pretty sure it always has said that.

    Thanks!



  • Had the same issue. Try removing the ’ marks before and after “true” or “false”

    like this

    config: {
         displaySeconds: false,
     }
    

    worked for me ;)

  • yes true and false are booleans and no strings, so you need to remove the quotes


  • Module Developer

    @strawberry-3-141 Try timeFormat: 12, instead of timeformat: 12,.

    Capitalization has gotten me more times that I can count.
