For the past few days, I’ve been editing my Ghost website, including the theme, to make it mine, so to speak. But I haven’t been able to get past this small, but rather significant, issue concerning Casper, Ghost’s default theme, and it’s copyright information in the footer.
On Casper, the footer includes automatically-generated copyright information, which is great, but it’s formatted incorrectly if you look closely. (It’s widely known that the copyright symbol should always be formatted before the name of the blog or, in the cases of larger media companies, the company that publishes the blog.) For example:
- The New York Times, the largest and most important newspaper in the world, formats their copyright information in their footer correctly, by formatting it: “© 2019 The New York Times Company.”
- The Washington Post, another example, shows the same formatting, but also includes the years its blog has been online or, simply, copyrighted online: “© 1996-2019 The Washington Post.”
In simpler terms, I’d like to change the formatting of the copyright information found in the footer of my website. But, really, this should be something that the team behind Casper corrects, as it’s a bug and is incorrect.
