The plugin was designed to detect a copyright year in the footer section of your website. If a copyright is placed in the body, header or other area, even if it is global, the update will not work. If you have gone through all of the troubleshooting tips and the plugin is not working with your site, it is possible that the Theme is coded in a non-standard way.
