We switched to Blogger Contempo theme and started a new project to fix its SEO issues. The new, fixed theme is applied to our travel blog. We will be releasing all the new fixes, programs and instructions on this discussion forum.
The original fix
June 9, 2013 (updated on March 25, 2015)
We fixed the problem with the dynamic views Blogger failed to fix for over six months. In about every tenth page load, custom CSS fails to load properly, there is no menu, and the dock is empty. This makes websites look ugly and leaves users stranded without navigation. When the bug happens, user has to reload the page with [ctrl]-R or [shift]-[ctrl]-R once or twice before the website gets back to normal.
Great news: we fixed the problem. It has been applied to this blog a few days ago, and according to the feedback, everything functions properly now. The instructions for the fix are below.
To access and edit Blogger template, go to Dashboard, select Template from the pulldown menu, and Edit HTML. Then scroll down until you see the following lines at the bottom of the template:
Change the setTimeout function to window.onload so that the template looks like this:
Code: Select all
Click Save template. After that, go to your website and make sure everything works. If you get your dynamic views fixed, please share this page to others. There are still over 2 million bloggers using the dynamic views version that does not work properly. In case something goes wrong, leave us a comment telling what happened, so we can figure out together how to fix that. Thank you.
Code: Select all
A similar incident happened in 2009. Is Google planning to shut down Blogger? Does this imply that the dynamic views template will soon be discontinued? Why Google fails to react to the complaints of angry bloggers? In any case, this is exactly the same kind of customer service that made us ditch Google Books permanently in 2007.
