In this tutorial I will tell you to edit the footer of your vBulletin forum so that YEAR in the footer changes automatically so that you can to New Year Party on December 31 instead of editing your footer copyright notice.

It is only four step process, see the screenshots below.

Login to AdminCP and go to (Step 1 and 2) Settings > Options > Site name / URL / Contact Details and scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see "Copyright Text" field. Edit the code below for your site and copy and paste (Step 3) it in the "Copyright Text" field. Click Save (Step 4).



PS. Do not forget to edit the text in the red color in the code below.

I found that out the hard way.

Thanks for the tip. I was wondering how to do that without using PHP code in a hook.

Great tip...it work perfectly the first time....unlike when I hack together something myself.

Thanks and happy New Year!

great,

quick question...

When I look to the source code it shows:
2009-<script type="text/javascript">d = new Date();y = d.getFullYear();document.write(y);</script>2012
(or when using a little other script, but doing the same thing: )
2009-<script type="text/javascript">document.write((new Date()).getFullYear());</script>2012

is there a way to only show: 2009-2012
in the source-code?

Friendly greetings,
Valcav

In the source-code javascript will be displayed.
