Title: SMF version / year
Post by: Artras on February 03, 2017, 09:37:58 AM
At each page at the bottom I see "SMF 2.0.13 | SMF © 2016, Simple Machines"
On the avast webboard I even see "SMF 2.0.13 | SMF © 2015, Simple Machines"

As version 2.0.13 was released this year (2017), it seems to me something goes wrong somewhere.
Is it a bug or is there another problem ?

if you are using a any language other then the default english you need to change the copyright manually.
the patch for 2.0.13 was actually generated in 2016, so the year was not updated when the release was made.

Thanks for your answer.

Only would like to know where/how I can update the copyright.

well, in general, you should not change the copyright of the SMF software, since that is our legal copyright.
(so, 2.0.13 should be using 2016, because that is the legal release of the version)

if you need to change it in another language:
index.yourlanguage.php
$forum_copyright

Thank you.

I will check the other languages and if they show 2015, I will change them to 2016.
