Fixing Undefined Date in a Blogger Post Template

A very common problem for Bloggers especially blogs and sites which uses free blogger templates which are downloaded online is that they mostly encounter errors on the display of dates and times on their web sites.

Most of the time, if you will modify the codes, and if you try to display the timestamp in your blog post, you will only see the time, and not a complete UNIX timestamp, so theere is no problem in the code or blogger xml/html codes, the problem lies in the display settings on how the template parses the timestamp in our web site that is understandable to the visitors. This is just a very simple problem that does not require any complex changes in the html or xml codes of our templates. Maybe some of us are trying to fix it through coding but that is certainly a long process and might take much of your time.

Here are the very simple steps:

1. Go to your Blog's Settings>>Language and formatting

2. Look at the Timestamp Format, maybe that is set to only the time and does not include days and month.

3. Click the drop-down and change it accordingly (look at the format in the photo above, the timestamp format should look like that)
