Change Copyright Year Automatically On Your Blog [How To]
New to tech or a newbie blogger? You should have probably installed a free theme on your blog, maybe, sometimes premium theme if you have taken your blogging journey a serious one. Most of the free themes have less functionality of customization. The copyright year is an important thing that you need to care about when you are into the next year. If your theme provides a dynamic functionality of taking the year from the browser, you do not have to worry. In the other case, if your blog has a static year in the footer that says copyright, you can make it dynamic, or in other words, you can change copyright year automatically using the system's time.
Most of the bloggers use WordPress or Blogger platform. I do have a tutorial for both platforms. Also, if you are using WordPress, we have got two different ways to add a dynamic year so that copyright year automatically changes.
- Login to your Blogger dashboard.

- Click on Save.
- Now click on Save Arrangement to save your Layout.
Theme does not have a place for editing footer text?
