    I would like to add a small piece of java script to the footer that allows the copyright year to automatically update to the current: – the results looks like this:

    © 2007 – 2018 WebsiteName

    This is the code:

    © 2007 - var d = new Date(); document.write(d.getFullYear()); WebsiteName

    Could you please advise: where & how do I adjust the child theme so that it will display correctly. Thank you.

    The free theme has no dedicated JS field, so you’d need to use a plugin to add the code to your site. Then you’d need to format the target text in a way that lets you edit it with the companion JS.

    For example, use
    &copy; 2007 - <span id="copyyear">2018</span> WebsiteName
    in the text field and

    function update_copyyear(){
        var d = new Date();
        document.getElementById('copyyear').innerHTML( d.getFullYear() );
    }
    update_copyyear();

    for the JS.

    This code is untested
