How To Set An Auto-Updating Footer Copyright Year In Divi Without Code
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.
Step 1. Add Text Module
Step 2. Choose Dynamic Content Icon
Step 3. Choose “Current Date”
Step 4. Fill In The Fields
Before: Copyright © (notice the space after the symbol)
After: Type your website name here
Date Format: Choose “Custom” from the dropdown list
Custom Date Format: Here you need to type a capital “Y”
And that’s it! Simple as that.
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.
Add about 4px of margin between them and you now have a 100% automatic footer copyright text in Divi!
Add Legal Links
You even use html in the “After” field, so just go for it! Nothing holding you back!
