I am having the same issues that Vincent and “Thibault” have! The date shows a huge “UNDEFINED” and runs into the words of the post. I also want to know how to change the first letter decoration?

I could not get the FAQ’s to work that I downloaded with the template code. How do you fix the “undefined”?

Hi guys, I had the date problem as well, but I was able to correct it. I doubt any of you will check back here but I hope that I can help out new people who have this problem.

The reason this code does not work is because blogger uses a different date/time format than WordPress and tumblr. These sites store the date and time as one variable, timestamp, which looks like “time,month day,year”. Blogger, however, uses just “time” by default. To fix this issue, go to Settings -> Language and Formatting and change the timestamp format to “dayofweek, month day, year”. This should resolve your issue.

IF you want a more technical explanation: the date script splits up the timestamp variable by commas, separating it into the array timesplit, which looks like [[time][ month day][ year]]. It then sets the year to timesplit[2] and splits [month day] by spaces, then redefines timesplit as this new array, [[ ][month][day]]. It then defines month as timesplit[1] and day as timesplit[2]. So you can see that it doesn’t actually look at the first comma segment at all, which is why it doens’t matter whether it’s a time or a day of the week.
Hope this helped! You can check out my blog and verify that it works.

I love this template. Just a few issues.

1. Sidebar is “fixed”. As a result it doesnt scroll down and my sidebar menu is long. When I made it “fluid” the sidebar scrolled and now sits by default way above my post body. This means my sidebar menu sit way above on the left. and white space on the right. You have to scroll down to see the post section. How do I fix this?

2. Using the latest version of Blogger. In the Pages from the dashboard, I cannot choose the pages to either be on top or sidebar of my blog. When I choose those options and save it reverts back to “don’t show” which means I have to manually link my pages. How do I fix this?

3. How do I expand the yellow background on sidebar?

4. How do I shrink my blog heading and make it fit in the side bar, right now, it overflows beyond the borders into the main (posts) widget.

¿Cómo se puede quitar que se destaque la primera letra de cada entrada?
