FTP Publishing - April 2009 #2

Yesterday, we noted the return of the well known FTP Publishing symptom
Publishing your blog is taking longer than expected. To continue waiting for it to finish, click here.


Today, and based upon observed threads in Blogger Help Group, and comments to the earlier post, it appears that the problem was not fixed, for all bloggers.

If you're experiencing a problem with publishing your blog, please provide details about your problem. And please, especially, when you report your problem, state whether you observed this problem yesterday also, and specifically state whether the symptoms of your problem are the same as reported yesterday. Nobody will be served by us reporting that yesterdays problem was not fixed, if your symptoms do not reflect the same problem as was fixed yesterday. If we have a new problem, that has to be diagnosed and treated as a new problem.

When making your problem report, as always, please provide details.
  • The blog BlogSpot URL (if applicable).
  • The blog domain URL.
  • The name of the server hosting company.
  • The Blogger FTP server setting value.
  • Important: Is this the same problem that you had, yesterday? Did you have any problem, yesterday?
  • Important: are you attempting to FTP posts with photos?


(Update 2009/5/1): Yet another occurrence of this symptom is being reported, heavily, in BHG.

Hi-

April 18th, having major problems uploading photos to my blog. I haven't tried this in a few days, so this is the first time I have experienced the issue.


The blog domain URL: http://www.browndepot.com
The name of the server hosting company: GoDaddy.com
The Blogger FTP server setting value: FTP
Important: Is this the same problem that you had, yesterday? Did you have any problem, yesterday? No problem/No attempt yesterday
Important: are you attempting to FTP posts with photos? YES - Cannot do it. When I go to my FTP site with an FTP client, it appears that the images are actually getting uploaded, but blogger is not dropping the code into my posting box, so it is as if nothing is happening.

I had this problem for the past three days. It seems to have resolved itself as of 3:00 P.M. Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Sunday, April 18th.

I am having problems with "Your publish is taking longer than expected. To continue waiting for it to finish" on my blogs

It happens both publishing a text blog entry and uploading photos.

Hosting provider: sherweb.net

The ftp server is windows.

Note: the files get uploaded, but it never realizes it finishes. I even got the email indicator of it finishing.
