Auto Update Copyright Year In ExpressionEngine

A couple of years ago, we wrote an entry on using PHP to auto update the copyright year on websites built on WordPress and other PHP websites. However, if you are building a site in ExpressionEngine, it is advised to utilize EE code when possible over PHP.

Allowing a copyright year to auto-update is easy to do in ExpressionEngine thanks to the "current_time" variable, which still functions using PHP date variables.

Simply drop the following in your theme and you are all set.

Copyright © {current_time format="%Y"}

We wish everyone a happy and successful 2012!
