InstallActivateGo.com Copyright Current Date Shortcodes

Description

This plugin provides the [iagc] shortcode, which can be inserted on a WordPress Page or Post to display the official Copyright notice, a C with a circle around it («©») required legally in many countries to protect («copyright») many forms of intellectual property.

The [iagy] shortcode displays the current year. To display the Copyright symbol followed by the current year, use the [iagcy] shortcode.

Although not required in a Copyright notice, the [iagm] shortcode displays the name of the current month and the [iagd] shortcode displays the current day of the month.

Note that the day, month and year are truly Current, accurate to the moment the Page or Post is displayed, based on the Timezone set in WordPress General Settings.

To provide compatibility with previous Versions of this plugin, the [c], [y], [cy], [m] and [d] shortcodes will still work, but one or more of them will be disabled if any other activated plugin or theme defines the same shortcode, so as not to interfere with that other plugin or theme.

FAQ

Why are some or all of the Shortcodes showing instead of their values being displayed?

This can happen if this plugin is not activated on the site you are using it on. Or if you mistyped the name of the Shortcode.

By itself, this plugin only supports Shortcode use in Pages and Posts, i.e. – not even in Comments. Other plugins may expand Shortcode usage into other areas, though older plugins may have stopped working with newer versions of WordPress.

Works well. The text responds properly when editing borders, alignment, and padding. Other similar plugins were not working correctly.

Using The7 theme, the shortcode will work in some places but not others. Can't fault either this plugin or the theme, but if using the plugin, be aware there can be issues.

Wasted a lot of time trying to get this plug-in to work, which it didn't, even after wasting additional time with the same developer's "Shortcodes Anywhere and Everywhere"....Note that this plug-in is not updated or maintained in any way for current versions of WordPress, so I would recommend finding an alternate solution. Finding an answer as to why it didn't work was also futile. No real answer is available publicly, even though I saw that other people had the same issue. When I reached out to the developer of this plug-in for some help ... he offered very little of it, was rude, unhelpful, and finally condescended to give me a useless answer that I already knew ... "Yea. It won't work...."

Thank you for this shortcode solution. I was so tired of editing the php files and having my edits deleted with every theme update. This short code works exactly as expected.
