Currently my blog theme is itheme from N.Design Studio. You can download it at this link:

If you try to install it yourself, you will notice something is missing. Exactly, the calendar icon is missing, and the date is not showing. Being a lazy programmer, it was ok for me at first.

Just so you don’t have to go through all the trouble, here are the steps:

  1. Download

  4. Save the two css files in your itheme folder, then save the gif file in your itheme/images/ folder.
  5. Now we will modify the single.php file. Open it up with vi or whatever you like
  6. Jump to line 9, in-between the div line and the h2 line, stick in these two lines:
  7. Now jump to your new line 14, between postdata and entry, stick in the following line:
  • Save single.php. That is for the individual posts. Now do the same thing to index.php for the front page.

    <div class="post" id="post-">

    <a href="" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: ">

    Filed in: Add comments
    <?php the_content('
