Forgot to change the year in your footer?

A new year, a new footer? Even now in february I still see a lot of blogs that haven’t changed the year in their footer (yet). It still reads “© 200x – 2007“. Maybe the owner forgot to change the year or doesn’t know how and where to change it.

Wordpress copyright change year in footer

If you change the code in your footer as follows, you’ll never have to worry about it again.

  1. Login to your WordPress blog
  2. Choose “Presentation
  3. Choose “Theme Editor
  4. At the right, look for “Footer” and click on it
  5. In the editor, look for the copyright sign (©) followed by 200x – 2007 (or something similar)
  6. Change the code to this:

© 200x – <?php echo date(“Y”) ?>

That’s it! Next year you won’t have to worry about it anymore, the year will change automatically.
