Our website shows “© 2011 – [current_year]”. Why would we want to do that? Well, it lets our visitors know that we’ve not just sprung up overnight, but have been around for a few years.
Here’s a quick php snippet to achieve just that.
How it works
First, change the
$first_year variable to the year your site was created. The script will compare
$first_year with the current year (from php’s
date() function) and if they are the same, it will display only the current year. If
$first_year is in the past, the script will display a range of years –
$first_year to the current year.
