Maha Copyright Date


Super simple way to add your website name, copyright symbol and current year via a shortcode. Just add the shortcode [maha-copyright-date].

If you prefer you can display a different name to your website name. [maha-copyright-date = change_name = “New name here”]


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Add the shortcode [maha-copyright-date] on your page.


Why do I need this plugin, won’t most wordpress themes have a copyright date already included

They do but most themes have the date as a static text. With this plugin the date will change automatically each year.

I want to use a different name in front of the copyright symbol not the websites name.

Yes that is possible. Just do this…[maha-copyright-date = change_name = “New name here”]
