Step 6

Does your screen look like the image below? This is the brains of your webpage. This is the backdoor of your Web Property. This is written in a language that you may have heard of but didn't really know what it was, let alone how to understand it. The screen you are looking at may seem intimidating, but knowing how to command the webpage to function a certain way just by editing the code can be exciting. Okay, maybe it only seems exciting to those of us who work with codes daily. 

The easiest way to locate the copyright date is to do a document search by using the keyword "copy". Once you locate the copyright statement in the footer, go ahead and change it to the new year. Do not add or omit any information from the original text. Whatever changes you make on this screen will reflect on your Web Property the moment you save the changes, so change the date only in the format it is written Don't forget to save your changes to publish to the internet.
These changes cannot be undone after closing this webpage.
To request the copyright service, login to the WIP forum and submit a ticket. If you do not have a login, contact us at 888-600-2011 and speak to a Virtual Property Agent.

Step 3

After clicking the "File Manager" icon, the next screen you should see is a list of your Web Property's webpages. Locate the public_html folder in the left column and click it to open up the files in this folder.
Step 4

It's time to edit each webpage of your Web Property. Now that the public_html folder is open, locate the first webpage to edit the file. Notice there are two files showing with the same file name. One file is the CSS file and the other is the HTML or PHP file. The one you need to modify is the one with the "html" extension, so right-click on the icon to go deeper into the server.
Click the "Edit" link after right-clicking on a web file.
Step 5

You are now entering the text editor. If you see the screen below with the warnings, you are in the right place so congratulations. Now, it's worth repeating that if you are not comfortable with editing HTML files, please find someone who does or submit a request for our team to do it for you. If you mess up the code in your file and do not have a backup copy, you can request for us to recode the webpage at $35 per webpage.

Click on the "Edit" button to enter the actual HTML file of your chosen webpage.
