My site is http://adultacnetreatmentreviews.com. As its new year 2014 now, I need to update my footer.
Currently I’m using Genesis Simple Edits and I have the footer codes displayed as below:
<div class=”gototop”><p>[footer_backtotop]</p></div><div class=”creds”><p>Copyright [footer_copyright] · Adult Acne Treatment Reviews · Theme by StudioPress<br><font size=”2″>If I create a link to a product in a review, sometimes I may get paid a commission if a visitor to my site purchases the product. For more details, please see my <u>Disclosure Policy</u>.</font></p></div>
I’m not sure whether I need to change anything here as I don’t see 2013 within this code. Does it mean that it will automatically update the year by itself? Or do I have to change it elsewhere?

date will automatically change. Do not need to change any thing in the code. Go to Dashboard -> General Settings page -> Select your time zone from the drop down. Thenyear will change based on your local time.

The [footer_copyright] shortcode includes the year and it will update automatically. If you want to display a span of years – for example, if you want it to say 2013-2014 once tomorrow gets here, you can change the shortcode to [footer_copyright first="2013"]. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the suggestions!
Ok. As nutsandbolts mentioned, since my site started since 2011, and I want to change it to 2011-2014, will the year ‘2014’ automatically change to 2015 next year while 2011 still remains?
Basically, if I do this, then is it an automated update?December 31, 2013 at 11:37 am #82337

I managed to do it! You can take a look at my site footer now. I’m in Singapore and its 1.50am over here. 2014 is just 2hrs old!
Thanks a lot nutsandbolts! Haha! Sorry, I don’t know your name and so I have to call you like that as displayed! Happy New Year 2014 to you and the rest of the studiopress members!December 31, 2013 at 12:05 pm #82343
Oh, sorry. Realized that I missed your name at the bottom of your reply. Thanks Andrea for your support!December 31, 2013 at 8:25 pm #82423
IANAL, but since copyright for a lot of countries (those signed up to the Berne Convention) defaults to 70 years after the author’s death, leaving the original date more than likely covers you.
