HOW TO: Automatically Update The Copyright Year


Copyright-YearManually updating the copyright year could be annoying to everyone. We need to change the copyright year every year. But there is a solution for this indeed. You can automatically update the copyright year using PHP and also using JavaScript.

These code snippets updates the copyright year automatically. JavaScript code works on any webpages whereas PHP code works only on PHP pages. But both they have their own advantages.

JavaScript Code Snippet

<script type="text/javascript">
now=new Date();
</script>&copy; Copyright 2008-<script type="text/javascript">

The output will be like this :

© Copyright 2008-2009

Note : You should update the starting year for your copyright year.

PHP Code Snippet

&copy; Copyright <?php
$then = 2007;
$now = date(’Y');
if ($then == $now)
echo $now;
echo "$then - $now"; ?>

You can also try this snipper for simplity of code

&copy; 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.
