Question now Answered - Many thanks :)

Is anyone else suffering from 'Error 503' when trying to post comments or open up other blog sites since Blogger's update?

This thing is stopping me from posting comments left, right and centre over the last several days, but I'm damned if I can find a solution to it?

*This has now been addressed, thankfully - appreciate the replies :) *

No solution, alas, but it is a problem I've been having too. Refreshing the page seems to work, but is hardly satisfactory.

I just the error message coming back over to your blog.

Nikki said...

I'm getting it all the time too! I just keep refreshing the page and the comment has usually been posted. It's been much better over the last couple of days, are you still having the problem now?

Mark K said...

Aye - I think it has something to do with Bloggers update, as all was find and running smoothly before that. I'm still using the old interface, not really wanting to switch over to the new one.

I have it too and I'm also thinking that the Blogger update may have something to do with it. But it's definitely not your router.
I just got the error message when I tried to read this blog, of course.

I'm getting it from time to time also.

Elizabeth Twist said...

Yup, I've been seeing it. Like Nikki, I'm finding that hitting "refresh" usually reveals that the comment's been posted despite the error message.

Ok, thank you, ladies and gentlemen for replying. I can now rest easy and avoid bursting a blood vessel in frustration.

Oh the irony, I got it on my way to this page! Yes, I've been getting the message of late, but I find refreshing the page sorts it out.

I had no idea what it was. Thank you, Mark, for sharing this. One of my fellow bloggers mentioned it briefly on her blog, but I was left in the dark :( Isn't technology supposed to make our life easier? I think NOT. I always get frustrated with iPhones, tablets, laptops, blogs, and now this, error 503. Argh! >:/

Updates aren't always the best thing. Sometimes that approach of, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, holds true.
