There are a variety of ways to display a dynamic date on your website’s copyright. We’ve found this handy little plugin to be the easiest and most effective:

Current Year and Copyright Shortcodes:


  1. Download and Install the above plugin
  2. Next add a Text Widget to the Copyright area of your website. This is located under Appearance > Widgets
  3. Then simply input this text and modify to suit your needs:
    Copyright [y]. Your Company Name.
  4. The “Y” is a shortcode that will display the current year
  5. Enjoy 🙂
