SOLVED! spiffy date
I've got almost everything I want on my layout, only that Spiffy Date thingie isn't working. I got the first part of this tutorial http://community.livejournal.com/component_help/870069.html
but I'm not getting the second part. I suppose I've got to change something in this tutorial http://community.livejournal.com/component_help/1109659.html?nc=3, but I'm not completely sure where.
