I came across a lovely little modification the other day that will automatically update your copyright year at the footer of your blog. This will save you a hell of a lot of time if you own multiple blogs.
And it only takes about a minute for every blog that you run.
1. Go to the footer file of your theme and find where your copyright notice is located.
I have this as mine:
Copyright © 2007 – 2011 I Need Discipline. All rights reserved.
2. Where it says ‘2011’ (or whatever year you currently have displayed) replace it with the following code:
[box style=”0″]<?php echo date(Y); ?>[/box]
3. That is it. Now you should see that the code displays 2011 in your copyright notice. This will update itself automatically every year.
I hope it helps. 🙂
