How To: Automatically Change Year in a WordPress Theme footer

A few days ago I wanted to add the year to the copyright porition of the footer of my WordPress theme. To do this I added the following code to the footer.php of my theme.


  <p>Copyright &#169; <?php echo date('Y'); ?> <a href="https://www.kevinverver.com">Kevin Verver</a>.</p>

The great thing about this code is that it will change the year automatically each year so that you don’t have to remember to update it yourself.

WordPress SSL Administration and Login

I wanted to configure my WordPress blog so that it would use SSL for the WordPress login and for the Administration Dashboard.  I found plugins that would achieve this for me but it would not redirect back to HTTP when not on the login page or the administration dashboard.

To accomplish this I wrote a script that checks the location.pathname to see if it matches the regular expression “.*wp-.*”. This way it will only find a match if on the login page or the administration dashboard. I then created the next script to use if you browse the site while logged in. It changed the protocol to HTTPS, I made it all work by putting the PHP script in the wp-config.php that checks if logged in and then calls the scripts.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
var protocol = location.protocol;

var hostname = location.hostname;

var pathname = location.pathname;

var href = location.href;

var wpAdminMatch = location.pathname.match(".*wp-.*");

if (protocol == "http:" && pathname == wpAdminMatch) { protocol = "https:"; location.replace(protocol + "//" + hostname + pathname) }

else if (protocol == "https:" && pathname != wpAdminMatch) { protocol = "http:"; location.replace(protocol + "//" + hostname + pathname) };
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
var protocol = location.protocol;
var hostname = location.hostname;
var pathname = location.pathname;
var href = location.href;
if (protocol == "http:" ) { protocol = "https:"; location.replace(protocol + "//" + hostname + pathname) } else { };
</script>

$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
$Path=$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$URI='http://www.kevinverver.com'.$Path;
$feed_url ='http://www.kevinverver.com/blog/feed/';
$feed_secure_url ='https://www.kevinverver.com/blog/feed/';
if (0 == $current_user->ID && $URI != $feed_url && $URI != $feed_secure_url) {
    echo '<script type="text/javascript" src="/blog/sslcheck.js"></script>';
} 
else if ($URI != $feed_url && $URI != $feed_secure_url) {
     echo '<script type="text/javascript" src="/blog/ssllogin.js"></script>';
}
