Kristen, Absolutely. First, you’ll want to find the template that contains the copyright information. From the “Design” menu, choose “Templates”. Then, search for 2009. That should reveal the culprit. Depending on how your site was designed, there may be more than one template that needs to be updated.

Next, click the template title to put it into edit mode. Then, find and replace the year. To have it auto-update, you could change 2009 to . That will keep the year current.

After saving your template, you will need to rebuild your site to see the changes live on the public URL.
