The output will be like this :
© Copyright 2008-2009
Note : You should update the starting year for your copyright year.
PHP Code Snippet
© Copyright <?php
$then = 2007;
$now = date(’Y');
if ($then == $now)
echo "$then - $now"; ?>
You can also try this snipper for simplity of code
© Copyright 2007 - <?php echo date('Y'); ?>
Note : You need to edit $then for setting it to the year your blog launched. The final year is automatically calculated using date() function of PHP.

I never thought to write a script to update the Copyright year because it`s fun to change it yourself, to think what you have done in a year

So what would the relevant code be in Thesis?
Same I believe! These codes are common Avinash.. ! 🙂
I think the php coding of date (y) is enough for making the copyright year displayed. isnt it?
SEO Tips for Blogger
Anybody can add a copyright text on the footer of the page or i need to pay something to put a copyright text ?
You don’t need to pay for this… !
It is just a code ! So ..
Nice share buddy. It will help busy bloggers 🙂
Yup, and I’m sure, this will be useful to you ! 😀
DIdn’t get the thought of this until now 😉
Ha ha.. I thought of making this post.. when I was studying PHP ! 😀
Prefer using PHP People.
So better config the server to hav a common footer that runs in php 😉
I also prefer PHP code, but if the blogger uses a blog in .blogspot, then he should try only the JS code, since PHP is not supported there ! 😉
I recently moved from Blogger to WordPress! I will need this script now! Thanks a ton!
If you have any suggestions for a WordPress newbie like me, then feel free to tell me about it!
Glad you are happy with this script buddy ! 🙂
Suggestions ? 😀 Maybe.. redirect your blogger blog to wordpress… that can give you some extra traffic…
Actually, I never though of this before. Thanks for remind me. I’ll take a look =)
Thanks Blinkky ! 😉
If you need any assistance.. feel free to ask.. !
Well, updating an year is not that annoying, a new year comes once in 365 days 😀
As time flies.. you may become a busy blogger… then little things like updating years will be an issue ! 😛
Hmm thats a one good handy trick.
Glad it helped you buddy ! 😉
