I would like to add a custom copyright footer to my site e.g. MONTH YEAR. I have set up a »short« date format for English, French and German in admin/config/regional/date-time/locale. Using
<?php print format_date(time(), 'custom', t('F Y')); ?> in page.tpl.php is working great.
However I would love to go one step further. How do I print the short date format to page.tpl.php instead of adding them to *.tpl files separately?
