Discussing how to add a copyright notice at each page automatically on the NanoBlogger mailing list, here are the two propositions i can think of.

It can be done by adding directly the copyright notice in the desired template files (i.e. templates/main_index.htm, etc.):

  1. Either writing it in the corresponding files...

    $ diff -u templates/main_index.htm templates/main_index.htm.hardwritten
    +++ templates/main_index.htm.plugin Mon Aug 8 13:12:29 2005

    +$NB_Copyright

    +
    <div id="menu">
    $NB_PageLinks

The advantage of the second proposition is the capability to add a general feature using the NanoBlogger framework, and the use of the CSS to modify the new copyright class.
