autoupdate credits info in template footerIt makes a lot of sense to always add your website name along with Copyrights Date/time in Footer credits to let your users get accustomed to your brand identity and also know that you reserve full copyrights of the content you share on your blog. A credit link consists of mostly your Trademark/benchmark name (i.e. Blog Title) and the Time interval for which you deserve full ownership of your Blog resources and of its use and distribution. When we design Blogger templates we often add Credit links or attribution links at the bottom of the blog footer to let everyone know who designed and developed the template.

In your case if you want to remind your visitors of who owns the content and resources then you can surely use the simple script shared below which will dynamically insert your Blog Title, Blog link and current Year in your blog to let everyone know of your Copyrights. After using this XHTML + JavaScript, no matter how many years may pass by, your footer credits will always show the current Copyrights Legal Date, thus preventing you from manually updating the Date each year and Blog Title each time you update the Site Title. If it is 2015 it will show © 2015 and in 2020 it will automatically get updated to © 2020. Therefore this tutorial will help you Auto Insert Copyrights Legal Date and Trademark in Blogger Footer Credits. Lets get started

Update Blogger footer Credits

1 Go To Blogger > Template > Backup your Template

2 Click Edit HTML

3 Search your Footer Credits code and replace the contents with this Simple code.


<a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl'><data:blog.title/>™ </a>© <script type='text/javascript'>document.write(new Date().getFullYear());</script>, All Rights Reserved.

Things to note:

  • data:blog.homepageUrl will be replaced with your Blog Homepage URL
  • <data:blog.title/>™ will be replaced with your Homepage title i.e. Your Trademark
  • The green highlighted script will be replaced with Current new Date of the year. getFullYear() returns the year in four digits. You can learn more about it at JavaScript Date Reference
  • You can replace the bold black text with any custom message you may like

4 Finally save your template!

Your Footer will now be automatically updated each time you change your blogspot blog title or when the new year arrives!
