WordPress Plugin: Automatic Copyright Year

Auto­mat­ic Copy­right Year seeks to solve a com­mon prob­lem: keep­ing your copy­right year up-to-date.

It’s a prob­lem all of us had: on Jan­u­ary 1st every year, we need to go through every one of our web­sites and update all the foot­ers. And when we see oth­er peo­ple’s sites that, in the foot­er, say, “© 1998” then sud­den­ly it’s revealed how out-of-date the site is.

With Auto­mat­ic Copy­right Year, this prob­lem will nev­er hap­pen to you!

Instead of going through every site you have each year on the 1st of Jan­u­ary and change the year man­u­al­ly, now it will all be done seam­lessy for you. Just install the Auto­mat­ic Copy­right Year plu­g­in and voila: your sites will always have an up-to-date copy­right.

The instal­la­tion and use is very straight­for­ward. You should:

1. Upload the fold­er ‘auto­mat­ic-copy­right-year‘ to the ‘/wp-con­tent/­plu­g­in­s/‘ direc­to­ry
2. Acti­vate the plu­g­in through the ‘Plu­g­ins’ menu in Word­Press
3. Add ‘<span>2021</span>’ to a wid­get or to any­where inside the html foot­er ele­ment

As of ver­sion 1.0, there is no need to mod­i­fy any options. The plu­g­in will go through the con­tent of your wid­gets and the html foot­er tag and replace <span>2021</span> with the cur­rent year num­ber.
