[SOLVED] Animate Category Menu Bar / Custom Post Date Not Working After Update to 3.6

After updating to 3.6.7, I have noticed that the Animate Category Menu Bar option is not working. I have it set to yes, but it is not working as it was on 3.6.4.

Also, the code that I added to Add HTML/CSS Inserts in 3.6.4 for a custom post date is no longer working. I know that I cannot use PHP in this section any longer and would like to know where else I can put the code to make it work in 3.6.7. The code is below.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

.date {
background: url('<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/datebox.gif') repeat-x scroll top left;
display: inline;
float: left;
font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
border:1px solid #000000;
margin: 30px 10px 10px 10px;
.date-inside {
border:2px solid #FFFFFF;
.date .date-day {

Did you apply the BUGFIX's?

you need to change the <?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?> to the full path

Thanks for the quick response! I have not yet applied the bugfix's. (I am still a bit of a newbie...Do I need to apply all eight and do you have a thread on the proper way to do this?). Also, I am not sure what you mean by changing to the full path for the custom post date portion of my question. Any additional help you could provide would be appreciated.
Thanks again!

Juggle Dad,
Thanks for your first post. I found the thread on describing how to apply the bug fixes. Everything is working great again.

My custom post date has stopped working again in 3.6.7. I have checked everything possible and cannot figure out why this is not working.
Code below:

Added to CSS / HTML Insert:

.date {
background: url(/sitename/blog/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/datebox.gif);
display: inline;
float: left;
width: 80px;
text-align: center;
vertical-align: middle;
color: #FFFFFF;
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 16px;
border: 1px solid #000000;
margin: 30px 10px 10px 10px;
.date-inside {
border: 2px solid #FFFFFF;
padding: 2px;
.date .date-day {
font-size: 22px;

Added to edit post/page info items in kickers:

<div class="date">
<div class="date-inside">
<div class="date-month"><?php the_time('M'); ?></div>
<div class="date-day"><?php the_time('d'); ?></div>
<div class="date-year"><?php the_time('Y'); ?></div>

Please note - working on local server.

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks again!

Because of WordPress requirements most php does not run in the theme options.
