Website Footer Copyright Notice Disclaimer Statements – What Year to Use

In the early years of the Internet, it was common for a website to have the year of launch as the copyright year. The older the date, the more impressed site visitors would be with how old and presumably well-established and reputable the site was. It was similar to businesses having pride in their date of establishment. Today, most websites have the current year as their copyright. This is primarily done to convey to site visitors that the site is current. It’s also an acknowledgement that websites are constantly having content added and updated. Websites are no longer like books or other completed works and intellectual property. They are constantly changing in their design and content. Here are some thoughts to consider about copyright dates. Changing Views About Copyright. About 10 years ago, there was a perception that not only would the text and pictures of a website be protected by copyright, but also the other intellectual property making up a site’s design would be protected. Thus, when a major revision would be made (even if no written or graphic content was changed) people would have their copyright date reflect those changes. Today it seems that trademarks and patents are better suited for the programming code that makes up web design. Copyright generally covers intellectual property in the format of text, images, video, and music. Graphic design, depending on its use (if for business) may fall under trademark instead of copyright (unless it’s artistic design). For example, we would say that a business logo is trademarked, but we probably wouldn’t say it’s protected by copyright.

Facebook Pages – Deciding on a Page Name for Your Business, Organization, or Cause

In addition to your personal Facebook page, you can create pages for entities (businesses, organizations, bands, celebrities, or causes). When deciding on a Facebook page name for your business, organization, cause, or other entity, it’s important to consider what people will type when they are searching for your page. Some people will know your name and type that, others may use a more generic search phrase (if they don’t yet know you exist). You want your page name to read well, make sense, and communicate clearly, but also include those keywords. Start with the most likely word that people will type. You’ll notice that Facebook (like Google) uses predictive typing to narrow down the search immediately. So, if you start with the most likely word or name, this helps a lot. Avoid using phrases, quotes, or tag-lines. Before creating your page, try using the Search feature in Facebook to see how the predictive typing works and consider how effectively other pages are found. Critique them and consider ways you can make your page more effectively discoverable. The URL that Facebook creates for your group will include the name you’ve chosen, along with some numbers to make the page address unique from other pages with the same name. The above suggestions are similar to SEO guidelines for the Internet, but they apply within the Facebook ecosystem.   FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestTumblrGoogleMorePocketRedditPrintEmailLike this:Like...

Configuring WordPress to Display as Root Home Page for Website Installation

Technology > Services > WordPress Support Summary. Many hosting companies offer one-click WordPress installation. However, their implementation of WordPress places all of your site files in a subdirectory such as yourwebsite.com/blog or something like that. This document explains how to avoid having all of your website pages in a sub-directory. After establishing a standard WordPress installation, follow the steps below to make WordPress your primary (root level) website. These instructions are an excerpt taken from a WordPress.org support page on this topic. [source] Instructions. If you already have WordPress installed in its own folder (i.e. http://example.com/wordpress) then the steps are as follows: Go to the General panel. In the box for Site address (URL): change the address to the root directory’s URL. Example: http://example.com Click Save Changes. (Do not worry about the error message and do not try to see your blog at this point! You will probably get a message about file not found.) Copy (NOT MOVE!) the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory into the root directory of your site (Blog address). The .htaccess file is invisible, so you may have to set your FTP client to show hidden files. If you are not using pretty permalinks, then you may not have a .htaccess file. If you are running WordPress on a Windows (IIS) server and are using pretty permalinks, you’ll have a web.config rather than a .htaccess file in your WordPress directory. As stated above, copy (don’t move) the index.php file to your root directory, but MOVE (DON’T COPY) the web.config file to your root directory. Open your root directory’s index.php file in a text editor Change the following and save the file. Change the line that says: require('./wp-blog-header.php'); to the following, using your directory name for the WordPress core files: require('./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php'); Login...
