Tenía el mismo problema de la fecha.
Hay que ir primero:
En la parte de “Formato”
Hay varias opciones:
Formato de cabecera
Formato de fecha índice de archivos
Formato de hora
Zona horaria

El “Formato de cabecera” debe de coincidir con el “Formato de hora” que por lo general muestra una hora y no un mes y una fecha.
Ya con eso me funcionó.

I’ve downloaded the template and got as far as #’s 8 and 9 in the instructions.

There is no ‘Recent Posts’, or ‘Recent Comments’ widgets on my Layout Page.

So I don’t know what to do, or where to put the Feed URL you mention for both of those widgets.

Any help would be appreciated because I really love this template and want to use it.

Thank you

Hello all,

My Spanish is a bit rusty, so what I did was translate the ‘respuesta’. I got it. Here’s the literal transalation from MS Word:

“This is the answer: It is necessary to go first: Configuration: In the part of “Format” There are several options: Format of head Format of date index of archives Format of hour hour Zone etc. The “format of head” must agree with the “Format of hour” that generally shows to one hour and not a month and a date. With that already worked to me.”

So I tried to understand that. And this is what worked for me: In Settings > Formatting, I made the format the same for Date Header Format and Timestamp Format. Well, this is after several tries of matching different pairs, and if you would notice, Timestamp Formats are just a few, compared to the list in Date Header Format.

Anyway, the only pair that worked is “day-of-the-week month-dd-yyyy”, and for my case, that is “Saturday, April 04, 2009” – today’s date.

Then no matter how you define the Archive section, it has no effect on the display of date in the posts.

So, let me say it just the same, this template is very, very nice.

¡Muchos gracias!

Tambien seguí el consejo de Marie, en los formatos puse:

Formato de cabecera de fecha: domingo 12 de abril de 2009
Formato de fecha del indice de archivos: abril 2009
Formato de hora: domingo, abril 12,2009

y me funcionó.

Muchas gracias a todos.

Ésta era la plantilla que estaba buscando.

Sólo una pregunta: Cómo hago para que en cada entrada sólo me aparezcan 20 o 30 palabras introductorias y después diga leer más?

Perdonen pero soy un poco neófito en esto. Mi rama es la Anestesiología pero escribo bastante.

Para arreglar lo de la fecha teneis que poner el mismo formato de fecha y de hora, y así se arregla.

Thanks Eutychus! The below did work for me.

the only pair that worked is “day-of-the-week month-dd-yyyy”, and for my case, that is “Saturday, April 04, 2009″ – today’s date. – Eutychus

Yo he intentado resolver la mayoría de los problemas que da esta plantilla. Lo malo es que ahora los “recent post” no me aparecen, puse otro widget y ya no tengo problemas, pero ahora es el feed el que no responde, me tira error, como que no lo puedo validar.

Hay alguien que le haya ocurrido similar que me pueda ayudar?

Thanks, Eutychus!
Your answer is very helpful.

And I tried translating the tip into Japanese language.

1. まず、ダッシュボード⇒設定⇒フォーマットへ進みます。
2. 幾つかある日付ヘッダー項目等の設定項目の中から、
3. これらの値は同じになっていなければなりません。
Day-of-the-week, MM,DD,YYYY、例えば、
4. どの言語設定にしていても構いません。
5. あとはデータをセーブして、ブログを表示してみてください。

1. Go first Dashboard => Setting=> Formatting.
2. There are several options: ‘Format of head’…etc.
Just find “Date Header Format” and “Timestamp Format”.
3. Date Header Format and Timestamp Format must be the same value.
Day-of-the-week, MM,DD,YYYY. For instance,
“Wednesday, September 02, 2009”.
4. No matter what, or which language you selected.
5. Then save the data, and beiw your blog!

Thanks for the info. But I dont know how to start, how do I go to “DashBoard” Or where could I find the “Date Header Format”. Please explain me.

-Thanks in advance

Lulue 22 October 2009 at 8:41

Hi, Saravanan
OK, I’ll try to explain it.

*Your Blogger’s Dashboard is here

At first, go to “Setting” => “Formatting”.
Now you can see, “Date Header Format”.
It’s on the second line in the page.
Select “date, DD,MM,YYYY” from the pull-down menu.
(ex: Friday,23,October,2009)

And press “Save setting” button.
Then, check your blogger page.

Please forgive me for my poor english.
I’m not a native speaker.
Have fun :-D

Hola, tengo esta plantilla desde hace más de un año pero últimamente no se carga debidamente y no puedo ver el diseño (sólo el color de fondo). El problema es que puedo ver todo tipo de plantillas menos la mía. Le he pedido a otra persona que lo intente (tiene una conexión a internet distinta) y tampoco la ve.
¿A alguno de ustedes le está pasando esto?

I have been trying to use three of these temps, including this one, and I keep getting the message, “The zip file must include a file named ‘style.css’.” and it won’t let me upload it… Please help,.

↩ Reply
Claudia 9 March 2010 at 14:43

You do not need a style.css file. Just unzip the file your downloaded (with winzip, winrar or izarc) and read the instructions attached. You can also read our FAQ.

I am having the following problems uploading this template and using it on my blog:

1. Cannot load header art.
2. Template background art is not loading.
3. Certain aspects related to the background art (like dates of posts) are not showing up.

If you check out my blog right now, it’s kind of a train wreck.

I appreciate any help on this!!! I’m kind of desperate – I’ve been bugging a coworker to help and I’d like to leave him alone if I can.

Luke Sherwood 12 June 2013 at 17:00

Thanks again!
