    • navigate to any page on the frontend and click on the Customize button
    • or go to Appearance then Customize in the backend.
  2. Once in Customize, click on Footer, then Footer Layout.
  3. Now just type in the following shortcode in the dialog box, wherever you want the current year to appear.
