Because of changes in my schedule, I am no longer updating this blog or taking on new clients. Previous clients are welcome to get in touch with me and I will consult my schedule to see if I have time to help you.

Blogger Error: Too Many Redirects

I recently put together an awesome blog for a client with a custom redirect that took the visitor to a static page instead of the main blog feed when you first load the blog.  This is a really slick feature on blogger that helps you get around the fact that you can't have a static homepage in blogger like you can in wordpress.  Cool, huh?  Wrong.

The custom redirect feature is incompatible with mobile devices.  This is a known problem and (presumably) blogger is working on fixing it, but for now, if you have a custom redirect set up on your blog, people looking at it on their phones or tablets will see the error message: Too Many Redirects.

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what the heck was wrong when I got this error, so I'm just putting this out there as a public service announcement: if you use the custom redirect setting in blogger, your blog will not load on mobile devices.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Luckily, my client and I were able to figure something else out that worked for her, so all's well that ends well.
