Having trouble with Templater templates not being recognized

Things I have tried

I am running 0.15.9 on MacOS 12.5.1

I have associated templates with specific folder:

But when I try and create an entry I get the following error message:

What I’m trying to do

I have relaunched Obsidian and I have disabled and re-enabled but the problem persists.

I have checked the Console but don’t see any errors. Where should I be seeing the errors?

Thanks in advance.

Can you post the problematic template? Surround it with triple backticks ``` so it renders as pure Markdown, so we can see the syntax.

(No idea where the error might show up.)

Here is the template code:

author: forrest
created: <% tp.date.now(format: string=YYYY-MM-DD) %>

# <% tp.file.creation_date(formate="ddd D MMM YYY") %>

I’m not familiar with the syntax, but you have “formate” instead of “format”. Could that be it?

That was a hint of the root problem. I just discovered that the date formatting syntax has changed to the following:

<% tp.date.now("YYYY-MM-DD") %>

Thanks for the help in moving me forward to the solution.
