    How current is the information on the LII website?

    We update our collections of the US Code and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) each time the government releases a new machine-readable version. For US Code, update information typically appears at the end of the section and in the Notes. For CFR, update information typically appears at the end of the section.

    Our Supreme Court collection is updated immediately whenever the Court issues a new opinion.

    Our secondary materials are updated with new content whenever authors create it. We are exploring ways to display the creation and editing dates of materials in our Wex legal encyclopedia.

    Hi,
    I can't see any yellow boxes saying how current the Code is either. Have tried Chrome and IE. None of the sections I looked at seemed to have a yellow box, nor any other form of currency statement. I tried several different sections, e.g. 17 USC ยง1308 (see screenshot). Please could you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Best wishes,

    Hester

    I returned to this forum by clicking on the "How current is this?" link, and I remember posting a few years ago about it. Again I'm not getting the yellow boxes - sorry, I'm really not trying to be that guy. I was looking at 16 USC 4301 and I have attached a screenshot. Is there a setting that I'm missing? I'm getting the same issue in Firefox and in Chrome.

    Hi Gary. Just got confirmation that the URL structure will remain the same.

    Thanks so much, Charlotte! Any information you can obtain about the URL structure of the CFRs will be much appreciated.

    Hi Gary60. Sorry for the delay in response.

    Our eCFR is updated for every new issue of the Federal Register. Please note that our eCFR is still in Beta.
    Beta! The text on the eCFR tab represents the unofficial eCFR text at ecfr.gov.



    I will get confirmation on the URL structure.

    Please update this page https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/49/part-37 to include Appendix E: found here:

    https://www.federalregister.gov/arti...-and-practices

    Thanks! I have also let the FTA know it's missing from their website.

    Hello. I see in the initial post of this sticky topic that the CFRs on the Cornell website are updated each time the government updates them electronically. I assume that is still the case today?

    Also, is there any plan to change the URL structure of hyperlinks to the CFRs, or will they remain like https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/1/part-51 or https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/40/1.1?

    Thanks.

    Hi Brent. I see the yellow "Current through..." boxes when I visit US Code pages. What titles/sections have you visited where you do not see this display?

    I noticed that the yellow boxes aren't appearing any more on the USC pages I'm visiting. Has there been a change in policy or in how currency information is displayed? The RSS Feed links on the right sides of the pages look to have relevant information, but I am wondering if the yellow boxes have been taken down intentionally. Thanks!

    Lots of questions - I'll follow up directly on another channel, but short version: we use FDsys CFR XML for the text, Federal Register XML for the updates, and link to eCFR for anyone who needs the most current version of the text. When we started, FDsys XML was in a much earlier phase of development, so we adapted what we could (e.g., CSS) and most of our work went into correcting the structure - it's in much better shape now; we also add a bunch of markup to support features for people reading the CFR on the site. We update the text on the FDsys release schedule and the updates on the FR schedule. We use Drupal to add features to the processed XML and display the pages.
