Use the Right Format
This plugin detects a copyright year in the footer to automatically update it to the current year based on a visitor’s location.
© Copyright 2022
Do not place words such as your company name between copyright and year.
Dynamic Copyright Year will update the most recent year in a range. It must be formatted this way to work:
© YYYY - YYYY
Copyright YYYY - YYYY
© Copyright YYYY - YYYY
It works with or without a space between the “©” and year, or year and “-“.
It will not work with “to” instead of a dash.
Test if updates are working by entering a past year in your footer, then activate automatic updates and visit the site to view the footer. Test if updates are working by entering a past year in your footer, then activate automatic updates and visit the site to view the footer.
