I was toying around with my blogger blog and I noticed this weird bug or error. I cannot add a page element to my layout. Whether it was a bug or a real error, I still managed to make a work around to make it work.
Information about the error
I’m currently using blogger beta and I’m in the layout page. I currently have two places where I can add a page element and each of them has one widget. Whenever I try to add one, I cannot proceed after choosing which page element I want to add because it returns a 404 not found error.
Update from Entreprenars:
I found out that if you clicked the desired page element without the page being fully loaded, the 404 error always appears. What I did was to wait for the page to be loaded fully before choosing the desired page element . It was effective on me and the 404 error never came back.
Solution # 1 : Keep trying to add the page element
I did and after five tries of getting 404 not found error, I gave up… next solution please..
Solution # 2 : Relocating your widgets/page elements
In this solution, I moved all the widgets into one place. This picture can help you understand more.
As you can see in the picture, I moved all my widgets to the right part of the blog. Then I proceeded to add a widget on the lower part. Success!!! After that, I just rearranged my widgets again.
It’s just a simple solution but I’m glad it works. So if ever you come across the “404 not found error” while trying to add a page element in blogger/blogspot, you now know what to do. For more tips, bug fixes and solutions that you can find in wordpress and blogger, just subscribe to my feeds.
