Strictly speaking, every time a text is amended, the particular year should appear in the copyright notice i.e
© 2010, 2012 for which case there is the plugin sed_copyright (now sadly orphaned).
The following code features another method without using a plugin.
Use PHP to output the year
<txp:variable name="year" value='<txp:php>echo safe_strftime("%Y");</txp:php>' /> <txp:if_variable name="year" value='<txp:posted format="%Y" />'> © <txp:variable name="year" /> <txp:else /> © <txp:posted format="%Y" />–<txp:variable name="year" /> </txp:if_variable>
The code detects if the article was posted this year and would therefore display
If it was posted any year before the current year of 2014, then it will display that year and the current one – i.e
Here is the code in action© 2014–2023
