Every year, around this time, I love going to popular websites and seeing if they have changed their footer copyright dates yet. I guess you could call it one of my hobbies. This year, I was especially surprised with some of the websites I saw, so I thought I would share them with you.
Before I actually get to the list, I want to give you a quick tip on how to keep your blog updated forever without having to manually change the footer date. You can use this tip on any website that supports php 4 and 5. Let’s say that your blog’s footer looked something like this:
Copyright © 2009 TutorialWow.com - All Rights Reserved
To make it never have to be updated, just change it to this:
Copyright © <?php echo date("Y"); ?> TutorialWow.com - All Rights Reserved
As you can see, all I did was replace “2009″ with “< ?php echo date(“Y”); ?>”. This simply outputs the current year number, and makes for a care-free footer!
Without further nonsense, here are 34 websites that are still in 2008 (or even 2007 for some) – in no particular order.
You the Designer
Digital Artist Toolbox
Just Creative Design
My Ink Blog
Fuel Your Creativity
Web Designer Wall
Enough of my rantings – go update your blog footer!
