How To Set An Auto-Updating Footer Copyright Year In Divi Without Code

This trick will show you how to easily set an auto-updating footer copyright year directly in the Divi Builder with dynamic content!

Just Add A Text Module!

To get started, add a Text Module to your layout wherever you want it. You probably will want to add this to a footer section, whether that is in your Theme Builder or just in your page layout.

Copyright © 2021 Your Website Name

Step 1. Add Text Module

Step 2. Choose Dynamic Content Icon

And that’s it! Simple as that.

Bonus #1

Dynamically Add The Site Title!

Too lazy to type your site name? Want that to be automatic also? Great, we have another hack for you! Just add a second text module, and this time choose the “Site Title” in the dynamic content.

Next, add a CSS class to the ROW Custom CSS field called “pa-inline-module.” Basically we need to move the two separate modules to stack side by side with each other so they line up horizontally.

Copy the CSS snippet below into your Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS box.

.pa-inline-module .et_pb_text {
  display: inline-block!important;
}

Add about 4px of margin between them and you now have a 100% automatic footer copyright text in Divi! 

Bonus #2

Add Legal Links

You even use html in the “After” field, so just go for it! Nothing holding you back!

Cool!
Thank you for your work!

One question, how I can set this in the bottom line at the end of the page (under the footer)?

In your video you added custom CSS to page not Copy the CSS snippet below into your Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS. I was not able to get this to work with the Divi -> Them Builder -> Global FooterPage Footer. Could you include more instruction how to do this (video demonstration would be perfect). THANKS for sharing
