jQuery Current Year

Keep your website up to date with the current year with this jQuery Current Year snippet which is particularly useful for showing the current year for Copyright purposes:-

<!– HTML –>
<div>Copyright &copy; <span class="currentyear">Year</span></div>
<!– Script –>
jQuery(document).ready( function($) {
currentyear = new Date().getFullYear();
// Alternative
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
var today = new Date();
var year = today.getFullYear();

Simply ensure that you have added the span (and div container if required) on your page and jQuery will automatically enter the current year. The HTML Copyright symbol has been added for your convenience.

You can see a working example in the footer of this website.
