Your publish is taking longer than expected. To continue waiting for it to finish, click here.In some cases, the blogs are large, with lots of labels. This may be an expected consequence of size.
But size doesn't seem to be a consistent factor, and some reports are of hours of waiting for publishing to finish. However, I'd still advise considering blog size as a factor, while we wait for advice from Blogger.
>> (Update 9/10): Blogger Employee now suggests that the problem may be related to a server address problem
One blog was able to shake this FTP problem by adding a "ftp." to the beginning of their server address in the Settings | Publishing tab (for example, the address changed from "server.com" to "ftp.server.com"). To see if this will work for you, first, try connecting via a separate FTP client with and without the "ftp." at the beginning of your server name.
>> (Update 9/7): Blogger Employee is now involved, and has some specific questions.
- Could you guys tell me which hosting provider you're using? If everyone's using the same provider, that's an easy point to focus on.
- Have you ensured that things are running smoothly on your server? If you log in directly to your server, do you run into any difficulties?
- How many of you are unable to fully publish after you get the error? Or, are you eventually able to publish your files even though it takes a long time to do so?
