Resolve to Get Your Copyright Right

While coming up with your new year’s resolutions and enjoying some bowl games, remember to update the copyright year on your site so you visitors will know your site is current.

If you’re running PHP, here’s a way to set it and forget it:

<?php echo date('Y'); ?>

For example, Copyright © 1999-<?php echo date(‘Y’); ?> will always display the current year. Stick it in a footer or other global-include file and you won’t have to worry about it in 2009.

Any other tips to kick off the new year?

  1. Hey Joel,

    I’m back in action with more to come. My church’s Web space provider has been hacked a couple of times so there’s plenty of new blogging material coming out of the recovery process.

    Congrats on baby #3 on the way. I’ve got three wonderful boys who give me so much joy, laughter and wonderment.
