STILL HAVING BLOGGER PROBLEMS
Really frustrated with all the error messages preventing my posts from publishing but I guess the consolation is that we are not the only one's suddenly having this error 500 problem. Seems others are having the same thing. With text only Open Live Writer will publish but add a photo and it won't. Same thing with Blogger now. It will publish text but not photos. I'm not really interested in writing a text only blog!! I remember last year going through all this error crap as well. If Open Live Writer and Blogger doesn't work then what?? WordPress?? Geeeeezzzzz. I have a feeling the all powerful, all consuming Google probably has had a meddling hand in all this again!!!!

It is frustrating. Can ruin your whole day. If Blogger didn't work for me today, I'd be stuck. Be sure to let us know what you find.ReplyDelete
I guess it's not the add an album in Google Photos solution this time.
Hmm I have no problems publishing my blog on blogger as I have always done with pictures. Can't us live writer on a Mac.ReplyDelete
Sorry about this, but don't let it get to you.ReplyDelete
I have three different Blogger blogs and have just posted on them today and tonight, with photos, and no problems. In fact I can't remember a time since 2011 that I have not been able to post on Blogger but I write in their platform and do not send my blog to Blogger from any 3rd party.ReplyDelete
You might "clear" your browser cache files. That usually fixes the problems of when a website does not load. Just a guess. Oh, I'm on a Mac using Google Chrome or Safari.
I have noticed if I do web based photos from smug mug rather than uploading directly to Google the blog publishes almost instantly. With no glitches, from open live writerReplyDelete
I've had no issues with Blogger yet. Keep your chin up Al. It will work out at some point.ReplyDelete
y&t i've the same error with open live writer! i can't publish images. How fix it?ReplyDelete
As you know, me too. The recurring errors are wearing me down. Losing my blogginger enthusiasm in direct proportion to my irritation with Google. In protest I'd dump chrome and go back to IE if it weren't an even more unreliable program. Grump. . .grump. . Grump!ReplyDelete
I just tried a test post on my blog using the blogger format, not Live Writer and it posted photo's perfectly.ReplyDelete
I'm guessing it may be the Live Writer program.
I've never had any of those problems, but don't use Live Writer either and post directly on the Blogger page. To add photos I just click the add photos icon on Blogger's menu. I guess I don't understand why people use Live Writer...what advantages it brings.ReplyDelete
Writing in Blogger or Open Live Writer is the same but OLW easily allows more control over how photos can be sized and placed in the post and that's a biggy for me. If I were to put all horizontal photos in it would simplify things but I like to wrap text around vertical pics and that's tricky to do in Blogger. OLW also allows one to easily click and move photos around with the post and when one has a lot of photos that is big help. OLW also eliminates that second stop where Blogger uploads your chosen photos into a box then you have click them again to get them into your post. Blogger photo sizes are small, medium, large, and extra large. OLW has all those plus every size in between all those sizes with even smaller or larger at each end. There are also cropping and photo editing tools within OLW itself..For me I just find OLW has more to offer, is more creative than Blogger, and is easier to use.Delete
You can drag photos into blogger from your computer and once they load you can move them around by holding and dragging, and they do have size selections when you right click the photo you can chose the size, so I type in my text, then resize a photo to say medium size then drag it to the right of the text etc, and it works, probably won't work as well as Live Writer but until the issue is solved, better than nothing I imagine. I host my photos in Flickr, so it's more a 2 step process, copy and paste instead of uploading to Blogger.ReplyDelete
Having the same problems as everyone else....misery loves company I guess. Good to know that it's not something I've done but it still doesn't help much. I use Open Live Writer because I don't have unlimited data to do a draft while I'm on line. I tried clearing my cache etc. but nothing works.ReplyDelete
Hey Al, do not sweat it, even The Bayfield Breeze could not publish today!ReplyDelete
I hit this today, as well. It's so aggravating.ReplyDelete
Me too Al, been trying to resolve this as well with no luck so far. Hopefully one of us will have a breakthrough soon...ReplyDelete
EUREKA I MAY HAVE A FIX - Here is what worked for me - View your Blog in a browser such as Chrome. Using Blogger go to top right corner and select DESIGN. Then select THEME. Choose a new theme (or same if it still exists) and apply it. My guess is that some themes are outdated or have been updated. This worked for me and I hope it works for you too...ReplyDelete
OLW was originally created by Microsoft, if I'm not mistaken. It was abandoned my MS and has been kept alive by someone cobbling the code to keep up with changes in internet standards and functionality. This is not a long-term recipe for success. There's no money to be made in keeping an orphaned program running and the long term prognosis is bleak. Might be a good idea to master the Blogger editor, or move to Wordpress, whose editor is similar to Bloggers.ReplyDelete
Just my two nickles...
