Blogger: stack overflow at line 54 part 2
posted by Colleen Shirazi, Tuesday, November 13, 2007 at 10:28 PM (Pacific)

See part 1.

I encountered this again recently on someone else's blog. I googled the error, but all I could seem to find were versions of my crappy half-assed solution that I slapped up almost two years ago, on the assumption that Blogger would take care of it.

It's not caused by turning the backlinks feature on or off. It's caused by old Blogger templates. If you choose a new template for your blog, the error should disappear.

Note: if you've customized your template at all, do a Select All, Copy and Paste a copy of your template in a text editor such as Notepad, Wordpad, et cetera (anything that supports unformatted text files) before replacing your template.

Problems publishing on #4

Scratch the cookie theory. Doesn't work.

Now I'm trying something else out...if (if) you can publish on an older browser, the problem would appear to be browser-specific. It's just a bugger to test. Until you've blogged enough to really test it out.

I will leave you with a really nice episode of Doctor Who. Mind you I'm not the biggest Doctor Who fan, but some of the stuff is beyond excellent. Besides I need to test out my settings.

Okay! I've discovered a few things.

One is that my blog publishes fine in an earlier version of IE, when it won't publish in my (reasonably upgraded) versions of Firefox and IE. You might try using an older browser if you have one around.

Two is that when I turned on this setting in Firefox: "ask me every time," I got a boatload of requests from Blogger to modify cookies. I clicked "allow" each time, and it published without the nefarious "Your publish is taking longer than expected..." message.

It would appear to be a cookie issue of some sort. At least that's my theory du jour.

I finally got the opportunity to test this out: Problems publishing on

i.e. I tried clearing the cache when I saw this a couple of times:

It didn't work.

I got better results logging out, and logging back in again. Actually I deleted the cookie for, then logged back in, then published without any further problems.

I have no idea yet whether this is pure coincidence, but it's better than dorking around with it for hours.

I've had these on and off. I'll try publishing a post, and the thing keeps running and running, and doesn't publish anything. It will occasionally show a message saying to the effect: This is taking longer to publish than we thought, click here to continue publishing. So I click, and it starts running and running again, then I get the "publishing is taking longer than we expected" message again, then it runs and runs again, et cetera.

After some rounds of this, it will say, "Your blog was published with errors." When it finally gets to this point, I can actually publish it.

I used to be able to pop open IE and get it to publish there (I usually use Firefox). Now it's exactly the same in both browsers.

One time it did that, it occurred to me to try clearing the cache. This actually worked. When I got the umpteenth "publishing is taking longer than we expected" link, I cleared the browser cache before clicking the link. It published right away.

I haven't had the opportunity to try this theory out again as Blogger hasn't been "down" for me since, but I'm game to give it another go.

Just encountered this. You go to the blog and click get the above message.

Go to your blogger account and turn off the back links feature (settings/comments). Republish the blog.

I'll guess this is a temporary bug.
