How to make the calendar default to the current year

Our calendars always default to the current year. If a different year is displayed every time you open the calendar page and you would like the current year to be shown by default, follow the instructions below.

Out-of-date Bookmarks or Favorites

The problem usually arises when the calendar page is accessed via an out-of-date bookmark, favorite, or otherwise saved link. When you set up a calendar, the year is included as a parameter in the saved link (URL), like in the following example:

http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/custom.html?year=2015&country=1&mtm=2&cdt=4&df=1

The highlighted section of the URL determines the year (here: 2015). If you save this link, the calendar will always default to 2015.

Update your Bookmarks or Favorites

To have the bookmark, favorite or link default to the current year, simply delete the last section of the URL. In line with the above example, it should now look like this:

http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar

Now save this page and, if necessary, delete the old bookmark/favorite/link.
