    Copyright Date not changed

    Hi,

    We are running an edugeek joomla site version 1.0. The copyright in the footer of the site says:

    Copyright 2009 School Name

    It should have changed to 2010 automatically and it hasn't. The date on the Server and the Client is correct.

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks

    It's probably hard-coded in the php code (footer.inc ??)
    Sorry that probably should read footer.php (been playing around in Drupal recently)
    Check to ensure that your Template index.php doesn't set this value
    Then check ..../includes/footer.php which probably does set it

    Yes that sounds about right. Search for footer files and you're sure to find your 2009.

    There is a footer module which looks at the date and automatically displays the current year as the latest but I've not used the edugeek version for a while. (Just downloaded it as 1.3.zip with a 1.2 folder inside)

    Otherwise a quick bit of sed can fix this for you.

    I've just read on another forum of Y2010 issues elsewhere. EPOS terminals failing at midnight etc. No idea if this is your problem in this particular case, but could be.

    Sounds to me like your date is hardcoded i.e.

    Copyright 2009 School Name Here

    Fine the 2009 in the footer and change it to:

    PHP Code:
    Copyright <?php echo date('Y'); ?> School Name
    This will then echo the year (according to your server) so it will change every year without having to think about it.

    Microsofts online subscription systems seem to have this failing, my technet+ subscription online says it expires on the 01/01/1900 rather than 01/01/2011 it seems to have not been working that well!!! But I must admit a few things online glancing around the web seem to have suffered the 2010 bug (is this the new millennium bug)

    If you still have material that hasn't been changed since it was published in 2009, your copyright line should be "Copyright 2009 - 2010".

    That's hard coded I imagine. The vBulletin one has updated.

    In theory, does it matter? Is this text actually significant?

    I was talking about the one at the bottom of the very site. It may also be that vB have recently released a patch so that'll have latest copyright attached to it.

    This will then echo the year (according to your server) so it will change every year without having to think about it.

    It uses code similar to this. It is not hard coded in the PHP file there is a variable like this.....

    So just to some up the date is not hard coded

    Show us the code and echo it out yourself.

    I'll see if I have time this morning to set this up and try.
