[resolved] Year is displaying differently on different pages (3 posts)

    I have tried searching, but it's not turning up anything. Maybe I don't know what to search for.

    I am getting a different year displaying in my sidebar, depending on which page is calling it!! The sidebar code remains the same...but on my Pages and posts, the year is 2006, and on a category page, the year is 2007.

    Here are two examples (see the copyright info on the right, bottom of sidebar):

    http://www.timelessword.com/webmaster -- shows 2007
    http://www.timelessword.com -- shows 2006
    http://www.timelessword.com/sermons/gospels/who-is-jesus/who-is-jesus-matthew-1613-16 -- shows 2006

    The code for all of these is the same:

    2000-<?php the_time('Y', '', ''); ?>

    I have tried the_date and it's the same result.

    Any thoughts? I am not even sure where to begin. Oh, I am using WP 2.1.3, just upgraded but the problem has been there since 2.0.5. I am using a completely custom theme I built from the ground up. If there is any other info I can supply, I would be glad to.

    TIA :)

    replace the_time with date. the_time is a WP function that uses the year provided by the loop. But what you want is the current year, regardless of what displays in the loop. So use date, a PHP (not WP) function. Should look like this:

    `2000-<?php echo date("Y"); ?>
