    Hi Anandu,

    Yes, it is just a matter of waiting AFAIK. Blogger recently announced that “the old interface is going away in a few days” (the “classic” dashboard and profiles where you edit your blog and settings). Google is doing some major upgrades to integrate Blogger with G+ and other services, so things will be a little wonky for at least the next week or so (note I said “at least”).

    I got this error too. I have both a self-hosted WP blog and a Blogger blog and wanted to redirect my Blogger blog to the custom domain I also use for WordPress, but just for right now, it’s a no-go. Maybe check back around October or so — it’s only a couple weeks away. :-)

    try to right click -> impact element.. you can find this code
    “subdomain.blogspot.com”
    try you change data-c value to 1, data-c=”1″..
    shimmerchoco.blogspot.com
    automatically input text to change the domain is shown, and you can change this. I edited it using the browser chrome and successfully.

    This error is shown whenever there is some sort of a scheduled maintenance work going on. It usually gets resolved within the day.

    • rejdz

      your right- so very slow maintenance action! IF THEY WANT MAINTENANCE BE IN GOOD SIDE MAYBE NEXT TIME WITHIN 24HRS MAX. NOT A GOOD BUSINESS BLOGGER TEAM

      Its been 5 days now. I am also stuck with same issue. My blog is down.

    • sanam

      I have the exact same problem, it’s been 5 days for me now too, and since I bought the .com domain for my site i keep getting a 404 (not found) error whenever i visit the new website, even though i have registered it and my .blogspot.com has successfully redirected to the .com

  • Romi

    I think this is not an issue that we can solve.May be the maintenance section of blogger doing some kind of maintenance work may be for better workflow. I don’t know how much time it take to become normal condition .If anybody know that please let me know
    Thanks
