How to solve “Please correct the error on this form” - error on blogger - Google AdSense

Hello, google brought you here because its the best recommended for you. Kindly bookmark this website now

Are you a blogger or website owner using blogger platform trying to set up your google adsense associated with your blog and getting frustrated with error messages as “Please correct the errors on this form” or “could not save earning settings” or “google adsense cant show on classic themes” 9jaedublog is here to help you set-up and troubleshoot your blogger website.

Try trouble shooting your website and your browser, use google chrome incognito tab or clear your browser history and data then load your website again. Try also on other devices and PC to check if it's displaying ads.

Try the new blogger, cause probably the old version of blogger is stopping you from doing that, use PC and mobile to check also but in the new version of blogger.

Check also if the account logged in on your blogger dashboard is the account associated to your google AdSense account you are using on your blog, you can have up to 3 google accounts to one blog and one of them is the main account for AdSense, so if you are not logged in, you will get some errors with blogger.

Cant Show ads between your posts

  • Sign in to Blogger. In the top left, choose the blog where you want to show ads.
  • From the menu on the left, click Layout.
  • Based on your template:
  • In "Blog Posts," under "Page Body," click Edit.
  • In "Blog Posts," under "Main," click Edit.
  • Check the box next to "Show Ads Between Posts."
  • Choose the ad format, colors, and how often you want the ads to show up.
  • Click Save. If you are getting the error message at this step just try reverting to the new blogger or go back to the earnings page and turn off the ads to no and come back to set show ads in blog post and save to see, if it didn't save don't worry. Just continue with the tutorial.
  • To save the arrangement, in the bottom right, click Save.

What to do if AdSense doesn't turn on

Important: To check that your account is still active, go to AdSense.

Sign in to Blogger, in the top left, choose a blog from the menu on the left, click Layout. Under the AdSense gadget, click Edit and then Save. Repeat again for each AdSense gadget on your blog. At the bottom of the "Blog Posts" gadget, click Edit and then Save.
To save the arrangement, in the bottom right, click Save.

Set up an ads.txt file

If your blog is monetized with third-party providers or you’ve manually integrated AdSense in your blog, you need to manually set up the content of the ads.txt file. Learn more about ads.txt for AdSense.

Sign in to Blogger. In the top left, choose the blog you want to set up, from the menu on the left, click Settings. Under "Monetization," turn on Enable custom ads.txt, click Custom ads.txt.

Copy the settings from your third-party monetization provider and paste them in the text box. Click Save.
Tip: To check the content of your ads.txt file, go to http://<your blog address>/ads.txt.

Can't save your modification in Layout > Blog posts in 2021

I got feedbacks on another issue on blogger which is related to this, so I decided to update this post.

You are trying to edit your blog Layout and the body section of your blog posts but cannot save the settings. You are always getting an error notification to correct the error on the form, you checked and can't find error which can be corrected and still shows error while trying to save. 

This issue occurs because of the manipulation of theme, Google blogger has a malfunction in the themes switch or changing. When you switch from an old theme to a new theme, you will notice there are widgets which was on the old theme you used which will not be removed automatically when you change to a new theme, that's why you manually remove them.

So, back to the blog posts edit section, if you are not qualified for AdSense (your blog/website is still under review by AdSense and has not been approved by AdSense) check on the show ads between post checkbox, check if its tick to show ads on your blog.

If it's been tick to show ads, kindly untick it and try to save the settings. If you get error and still cannot save this settings, just try to troubleshoot this by going to your left menu and click on Theme then Backup to save your present theme, then go back to layout and remove all widgets on your theme. 

There are some widgets which cannot be removed, all you see is save and cancel button, don't worry this is been set by default in the theme.

Go back to theme in your left menu and choose a SIMPLE theme provided by google blogger below the free themes available. Click on apply button to apply it to your blog. 

Go back to your layout section and remove every widget removable, those widgets which was set by default not to be deleted will be able to be removed now because it a new theme. Once removed and save, go to the blog posts section on your layout editor to edit the show ads in blog setting which was resulting to the error notification.

Now you can successfully untick it and proceed on saving the theme. Your main issue is been resolved, go back to your theme settings in the left menu and click on restore to restore the backup file of your previous theme. Upload it and you are back to your theme. Go back and confirm if the show ads checkbox is still untick. If  it is still tick, just untick it and save, this time you won't get error on saving the theme anymore. If you still encounter any error while trying out this steps afore mentioned just drop a comment below and we will attend to your requests. Thank you

  1. The new blogger ui has some adsense error indicators, a bit better from the old ui which does not state what the errors might be. Hope the blogger team would add more features...

    1. Absolutely yes, we hope for more functions. Another error i noticed, when i make a blog post with the new UI, the first image found on a blog post is usually the cover photo for my feeds on index page. The issue i have is the image doesn't show up in bottom or sidebar feed (related topics, popular posts, suggested feeds...etc). So i usually use the old blogger to make posts.

  2. Blogger is aware of this function and error. Their teams are currently working on this. Thank you.

  3. This is a problem I have faced on many blogs.. Thank you for this solution.

    1. We are glad issue has been resolved, thank you for your feedback, p.s post has been updated. Stay tuned.
