What Do We Know About The BX Error Codes So Far?

All we really know about the bx error codes - so far - is that they occur when something goes wrong with what one is trying to do to their blog. has said that the error code message has always been there (even before they changed to their new format). It's just that now they have assigned bx error code numbers to the error messages. has said that the codes don't have any specific meaning to them - however there are a few bx error codes that have been posted about more than one time.

"How Long Until Contacts Me After I Report My BX Error Code Problem?"

According to one of's articles they don't generally
contact someone UNLESS they need more information about what it is
that you are reporting.

Also too, enough people have to report the error and I am assuming
that this is because has said that a lot of these bx error
codes are temporary - meaning you might want to give it a few days to
see if the problem solves itself.

It has also been suggested by one of the employees that
you might want to try to clear your cache and cookies and then re-load
your browser. Some people have posted that this has worked for them.

BX Error Codes - Whose Fault Are They?

Here is a reply that I posted on one of the "help boards:

It's not really anyone's "fault". Glitches and the like occur all the
time on the internet. Recent articles have said that the bx error
codes could be the fault of, one's computer and even one's
server so there could be more than just one reason as to why you are
getting one of the bx error code messages.

As I have said before has said that a lot of these bx
error codes are temporary which means that you may want to give it a
few days to see if the problem solves itself.

However if you continue to get the error code you can report it to by clicking on "Resources" on the right side of this page
and that will take you to a link where you can report your bx error
code problem. When enough people report it then will
assign someone to look into it further.

If you take a look at some of the previous posts you will see that a
lot of people have been posting about the bx error codes that they
have been getting and while I'm sure that they would love to have
their bx error code problem solved asap it may not happen that fast.
You have to realize that you're not the only one(s) who is getting one
of the bx error codes and there are probably some people "ahead" of
you in that they have reported their bx error code problem before you.

You should keep in contact with's official blog where they
post about the errors that they have fixed so far - and hopefully
yours will be amongst them.



a blogger has posted that they have gotten this bx error code when trying to publish a post to their blog and/or the blog post isn't being accepted.


It may help to save your post as a "draft" until you can figure out how to solve the problem.

"How Long Does It Take To Solve A BX Error Code Problem?"

Here is an answer that I posted to one of the help boards:

It's really hard to pinpoint an exact time as to when can / will solve a particular bx error code problem.

When I have replied to other posts taliking about a bx error code I usually reply to report it - but you have already done that. However it should also be noted that enough people have to report the error before will assign someone to look into it further. has said that a lot of these bx error codes are temporary so you may want to give it a few days just to see if the problem solves itself.

I have all seen other people reply that even though you did report it you may want to report it again.

From time to time I have seen some of the employees answer some of the posts so maybe one of them will see yours and reply.

Also too, does have their own official blog where you can read up on their latest updates and fixes.

"Hi, I got this error when i upload(ed) my layout template to my blog. What shall i do to upload my old template to my blog?

I finally managed to change my template. I did not even remember that I had needed to change it until a friend had reminded me just now.

Well..Celebrations! I love my blog now..that lame plain white theme made me work all night saving each and every script before I could even edit the template. Argh. And yeah, cheers to blogger for fixing "bX-4smx9i" error code making my templates work fine :) hooray!

I Got Mail From The Blogger Help Descussion Board!

Yesterday I got an email from the message boards saying that they request that I not include my signature line with all the posts that I answer!

This seems really strange to me because number one one of their main articles said that as long as the signature files are short and sweet then they are allowed. MY signature line is 3 lines long! Is that not short enough?

I just don't understand why other people can leave their signature lines in a post but not me!



bx error code # that appears when trying to upload an image to one's's blog

Tuesday, July 15, 2008



this bx error code also came up when someone posted a link on their blog. When the person went to view their blog that is when they got this same message error # (they also have said that they can post but not view their blog)

*A Side Note Here:

Unfortunately this now means that the error codes that people are receiving may not all be for the same thing!

Comments From Others!

Here is a comment that was left by a blogger who has a blog on

"I have tried and tried to contact but I have no idea how! I have started to move my site over to Wordpress. I thought that if Blogger was to smarten up I could continue with them. That has not happened."

People Are Still Getting BX Error Codes!

Here is a copy of one of the replies that I have been posting on the help boards when people have been posting about the bx error codes that they have been getting:

It's dis-heartening to see that so many people are posting about the bx error code problems that they are getting. Even though there are so many posts from people who have said that they are getting numerous different bx error codes I thought that I would answer your post simply because no one else did.

Basically if you are still getting the bx error code then you can report it to the staff by clicking on "Resources" and that will take you to a link to where you can report your bx error code problem. When enough people report it then will assign someone to look into it further.

Here is what someone posted about this particular bx error code:

"I want to edit my HTML. I am trying to update my blog and i wanted a new Template. I got a free one on ..... and I went to edit my HTML and it didn't work. I got this error code: bX-drsmql. Anyone able to help? by the way, none of the templates worked on this blog, whereas they all worked on my other blog."

Here is a solution that someone else posted:

Verify the template is compatible with your Blogger account. If you use the 'classic' templates, the template must be XHTML based. If you use the newer 'layout' templates, the template must be XML based.

So far 3 different people have reported this specific bx error code number.

blog normally

"It Is Difficult Contacting"

"I have been getting the error codes for over a month now. I have reported them to Blogger and nothing. I continue to get daily new error codes when doing the same thing and I report them and still nothing. I don’t even have the faintest clue of how to contact Blogger to get past the error code screen that you’re talking about. Blogger makes it so difficult contact their support group services."

While I do know that the staff have posted different links to where people can report their error code problems - I have included such a link on the side of this blog - it seems that people are getting quite frustrated at not getting any feedback from about the error code messages that they are receiving. I have seen message board posts from actual employees stating that they see that some bloggers are feeling as though they are "not getting enough love" and that is why they posted links to a form where people can report their error code problems. But so far it doesn't seem to be doing any good as far as some bloggers are concerned. A few have even mentioned that they were considering moving their blog to someplace else!

that's why I can't understand why just doesn't simply post the procedure for getting out of the error screen. It's my theory - and I have to say this is my theory alone - that the reason why they are not posting the bypass procedure is because they want people to send them the error code messages that they are getting as opposed to just posting the bypass procedure. This is probably because they want to know what the error codes are and how people are getting them. However the problem seems to be that people are getting the same error codes for doing different things! Another thing too is that while a specific error code has been solved for one person it hasn't been solved for another.

I have mentioned many times about there being an error code blog online - don't know if it is's offical blog but it does have error code information on it. The last time I checked the blog - which was a few days ago - the blog said that it was temporarily unavailable which is strange because I can still see it online!

Update! - the blog has been recently updated!

If you are trying to contact the staff about asking about the bypass procedure and they are not resonding they must have a reason why. Maybe they just don't want the bloggers to know what the bypass procedure is. Meanwhile I will continue to use it because getting those error code screens is quite annoying and if I didn't know the bypass procedure myself I would just move my blog somewhere else.



If you are getting this error then one of the reasons could be that you have not granted permission to to access your adsense account.

Here is one solution that has been posted:

  1. Login to your Google account, then

  2. then click Adsense and go to your adsense account

  3. Go to the "My account" tab then go to "Account access" and press the "grant access" option

* For those of you that do not know what the adsense program is it is a way that lets you make money with your blog or website by placing ads on your site. When visitors to your site click on the ads then you earn money. How much money can you earn with the adsense program? Here is a link to a blog post about just how much some people have been making with the adsense program

I Found Out The "Bypass" Procedure Solves Yet Another Problem!

Have you ever tried signing in to your account only to be met with the folowing error message:

Your browser's cookie functionality is disabled. Please enable JavaScript and cookies in order to use Blogger

Well I got this message today and decided to try and get out of it because I knew that something was wrong here because I have been able to get into my account before. So I tried the "bypass" and it worked!

August 17, 2007 - I got this same problem to day when I was trying to get to my blog and I used the bypass procedure and as you can see I'm back to my blog!


Someone reported that they had gotten this error code................


"Omigosh - I kept getting the same error (bX-4smx9i) and could not figure out how to fix it. After searching and searching different groups, discussions and other sites - I finally stumbled onto someone's post on how they fixed it. Whenever I tried to upload my XML template, it would give me a warning that certain page elements would be deleted. I would click confirm and save, but the next screen would give me a big FAT error. I followed the suggestion from this blog and deleted all the page elements listed and... HALLELUJAH!! I was able to upload my XML file and get everything fixed................."

Unfortunately the person that posted this did not leave a link to the website / blog that told them how they solved the problem........

happens when trying to upload a new XML template to change your blog's layout

Someone posted a solution that worked for them.....

I get that occasionally.....For me, reopening my browser fixes the problem. At other times I have to reboot my computer.............

11/11/08 Update!

Here is another blogger that posted about this bx error code:

"HI, i had a similar problem when i tried to upload a template, i had to delete my adsense and then i could upload the template"

It has been some time since I posted about this particular bx error code and there has been some new news about when people are having problems with uploading new or third-party templates!

It has to do with the fact that the most probable reason why your template is not being accepted is because the template itself has either corrupt or missing coding in it.

I have that a lot of the third-party blog template sites have information on them to help you if you are having problems uploading a new template to your blog.

It would also help a great deal if you posted and said which of the templates you were trying to upload and mention the site where you got the template.

I got this code today when I was making a change on my AOL Blog!

I was posting an entry to this blog about AOL's recent price/fee increase and I noticed that my blog had more content on the side than it did with the blog posts so I decided to increase the number of blog posts that appeared on one page and thus I wanted to change the number of times that my adsense ads appeared under the posts. So when I tried to change the number of adsense ads between my blog posts - up popped the bX-ts0ypr error code!

I used the bypass procedure and it got me out of the error code screen!!

If you take a look at my AOL Blog you will see that my adsense ads appear after only a certain number of posts!

For a few days now I have been wanting to get one of those bx error code screens just to see if the bypass procedure works - and it does! which lets me know that there is indeed a way to get out of those infamous bx error code screens!

By the way this particular bx error code - bX-ts0ypr - has been mentioned many times by others who have posted that they have gotten the same exact error code!
