Dilectio Blogger Template edit post

Posted by Clyde On Thursday, February 07, 2008
The Dilectio blogger template has been ported by Jacky Supit and is also called as the wow or smashing blogger template. I prefer the word Dilectio, given to us by its orignal creator Design Disease who created this template for wordpress.

This theme was created for a contest run by Smashing Magazine who asked for a “simple, beautiful and user-friendly” template. It definetly maages to do that and its the same template that this blog uses.
Dilectio Blogger Template
Dilectio is the latin word for “love, solicitude, esteem”. The creator of the template states that it’s a rather atmospheric theme and to achieve this effect he started from scratch to make this template give a feeling, the rounded shape that is repeating randomly, creates a beautiful and original rhythm.

I really appreciate this template and it is by far one of the most beautiful templates I have seen for blogger. Although the blogger version seems to have a bug where the Author name does not appear.

The solution to the author problem is rather simple, go to the edit html settings of this template, expand widgets and search for the code highlighted below.
Smashing Blogger Template Author ProblemOnce you find the code below change the post.Author to and save the template. This should get this bug fixed, if you have a problem with the date not appearing then take a look at this post. I do hope you enjoyed this free blogger template, lots more coming soon.

    it says:

    We were unable to save your template
    Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.

    Your template is invalid because the tag 'b:section' appears inside of the tag 'head'.


  2. hello Lekim,

    Blogger has recently made some major update in their server settings.

    This does not allow < div > tags in the < head > section of the template.

    You will have to move the < div > in the body or perhaps above the head.

    Blogger has not yet announced officially what the situation is.

    So I hope you can wait for a while before you do so.

    I have the save problem that lekim.

    Help me for this balise, i love this template !
    How can you succede to install this template in your blogger?

    Thanks for your help, sorry for my english, im a french girl ;)


  4. Hello Jasmine,

    I uploaded this template much before blogger made these changes.

    I would suggest that you follow my instructions written in the second comment.

    Remove the < div > from the < head > section that should solve the problem

    I checked your blog out, why dont you use the cooking template or a recipe template?



  5. adrain said,

    What makes you think you can use the Dilectio theme without linking back to DesignDisease?


  7. Ahmed,

    Its strange that you say that I have not linked back. When you post a comment on a page that has two links to DesignDisease.



  8. Adrain are you still facing a problem?


  9. sue surah said,

    Your template is invalid because the tag 'b:section' appears inside of the tag 'head'.
    Now what to do ???


  11. Bhavika said,

    hey Annonymous -

    Its really quite simple, all you need to do is go to Edit Html and move the contents of the 'b:section' into the body part of your template. That's it!
