Perch Blog Date appearing as text field

When my client edits blog posts in admin, instead of select elements for the publish date, they just see something like:

2014-01-17 10:43:00

Any suggestions

Here's the info from Settings:

Do you have type="date" set on the tag in your template?

Yes. I have this in post.html:

<p class="entry-published date">
    <perch:blog id="postDateTime" type="date" label="Date" time="true" format="%d %B %Y" divider-before="Meta information" /> 
    <perch:if exists="authorGivenName">
        by <perch:blog id="authorGivenName" type="hidden" /> <perch:blog id="authorFamilyName" type="hidden" />
    </perch:if>
</p>

When did this start?

Not sure - client had only just reported it.

No other instances of id="postDateTime" in the template?

Nope, no other instances of that.

Ok. Anything else you can tell me? I'm not sure how to help.

Only that it doesn't happen on another site on which I have Perch Blog installed. That site is running Perch 2.3.2, and running Perch Blog 3.8.1. It only has <perch:blog id="postDateTime" format="%d %B %Y" /> in the post.html template, so I wonder if this is worth trying.

Can you show me the entire post.html template?

<div class="hentry">
    <h1>
        <a href="<perch:blog id="postURL" type="hidden" />" rel="bookmark" class="entry-title">
            <perch:blog id="postTitle" type="text" label="Title" required="true" size="xl autowidth" order="1" />
        </a>
    </h1>
    <p class="entry-published date">
        <perch:blog id="postDateTime" type="date" label="Date" time="true" format="%d %B %Y" divider-before="Meta information" /> 
        <perch:if exists="authorGivenName">
            by <perch:blog id="authorGivenName" type="hidden" /> <perch:blog id="authorFamilyName" type="hidden" />
        </perch:if>
    </p>
    <perch:if exists="image">
        <div>
            <img src="<perch:blog id="image" type="image" width="320" height="240" crop="true" label="Image" order="4" />" alt="<perch:blog id="postTitle" />" />

I can't see anything wrong there at all.

Hi...

I have this issue, did anyone find out what the problem was?

Stephen - this issue is a year old. Perch has changed a lot in a year.

You need to create your own thread, with your Diagnostic Report and your template explaining your current issue so we can help.

Fixed... I just removed

<div class="date"><perch:blog id="postDateTime" format="%d %B %Y" /></div>

From my post.html file
