Convert Your Blog Post Published Date In Calendar Style

It’s quite common to see calendar style dates next to some WordPress posts but for the Blogger platform it isn’t always an very easy task to add this. But who said you can’t do it? You need to look no further than this blog. In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to create a calendar style date for your Blogger posts.

How To Create Calendar Style Dates In Blogger?

Step 1.) Go to Settings > Language and FormattingDate Header Format and change the date format as you can see in my example below (put day first, then the month and finally the year)

Step 2.) Then go to Template > Edit HTML.
Step 4.) And search CTRL+F the following line:

<h2 class='date-header'><span><data:post.dateHeader/></span></h2>

Step 5.) In case you find it twice, then you should replace it twice with this code:

<div id='Date'>
<div id='Date'>

Step 6.) Now search for </head> to find it.
Step 7.) And paste the code from below just ABOVE the </head> tag:

<script type='text/javascript'>
var DateCalendar;
function changeDate(d){
if (d == "") {
d = DateCalendar;
var da = d.split(' ');
day = "<strong class='date_day'>"+da[0]+"</strong>";
month = "<strong class='date_month'>"+da[1].slice(0,3)+"</strong>";
year = "<strong class='date_year'>"+da[2]+"</strong>";
DateCalendar = d;
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<style type='text/css'>
/* Calendar style date
----------------------------------------------- */
#Date {
background: transparent url( dar07.png) no-repeat;
display: block;
float: left;
margin: 15px 2px 0 -108px;
padding: 0 0 8px 0px;
border: 0;
text-transform: uppercase;
.date_month {
display: block;
font-size: 15px;
color:#ffffff; /* Month's color */
.date_day {
display: block;
font-size: 28px;
color:#282828; /* Day's color */
.date_year {
display: block;
font-size: 10px;
color:#282828; /* Year's color */

Step 8.) Save and done.


No need of basic customization. If you want to do then can edit CSS as per your desires.
