Automatically update todays date on daily menu

Go to solution Solved by DavidCliff,

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! On my website we have a daily menu that we make daily changes too and currently we are manually changing the date everyday. I added a text block at the top of the page to manually do this. Does anyone know of a way or code to have this change daily to be today’s date? 

I have looked into 3rd party widgets but can’t seem to find anything that isn’t a calendar. 

please help! Thank you

Try this code in a HTML block

<div id="dateContainer">
    <!-- Date will be displayed here -->

    const dateContainer = document.getElementById('dateContainer');
    const currentDate = new Date();
    const options = { weekday: 'long', year: 'numeric', month: 'long', day: 'numeric' };
    const formattedDate = currentDate.toLocaleDateString(undefined, options);
    dateContainer.textContent = formattedDate;

David, thank you so much! Can you help me learn how to fix the font style and size so that it can match the rest of the website? 

I think you can add this code under to adjust size

  #dateContainer, #dateContainer * {
  	font-size: 18px !important;
