Happy New Year!

I have an old Gallery 3 (v3.0.9) site running with a hard coded copyright year in the footer. I need to update the year to 2021, and it has been so long since I touched the site that I don't remember how to do that. Also, is there a way to make the year roll over automatically?

I grepped the /var/www/gallery directory for the copyright string, but nothing came up. I assume it is a line in a footer template somewhere, but I don't know where.

Thanks!

I found the solution! Admin -> Appearance -> Theme Options. There is a footer section.

I still would like to have the copyright date (ie the current year) roll over automatically. Is there a way to do that?

I have the string "Copyright (C) xxxxx 2001-2021" in the footer. I would like to have the 2021 rollover automatically to 2022 next year. I tried inserting <?= date("Y") ?> in for the year, but all that appears in the footer is "Copyright (C) xxxxx 2001-". Can I put something in the footer for the current year so it rolls over automatically each year?

Thanks!

I came up with one solution that feels like a hack. Is there a more "Gallery3" way of doing this?

In the footer text I put
Copyright (C) xxxxx 2001-<span id="copyright-year"></span>.

In the theme/js/ui.init.js (themes/wind/js/ui.init.js) I added at the bottom:
  var date = new Date().getFullYear();
  document.getElementById("copyright-year").innerHTML = date;

Is there a more idiomatic way to accomplish this goal in the Gallery3/php world?

Thanks!

Mark,

Actually, what you've come up with is much closer to a "Gallery3" way of doing it that I was going to sugget -- which is a short bit of PHP script which that work in one of my non-Gallery sites. Not even sure that one could be inserted into the standard Gallery footer text like yours.

J.R.,

Gallery seems to strip out any php in the footer section. I tried inserting <?= date("Y") ?> in for the year, but all that appears in the footer is "Copyright (C) xxxxx 2001-". I couldn't find a way to "escape" that bit of php code so Gallery wouldn't remove it when the footer is displayed.

Thanks!
