Can't Access Craigslist - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Since I switched to Google Chrome about a month ago, every Craigslist ad that I try to view gives me a blank page with the message "This webpage is not available -- ERR_CONTENT_LENGTH-MISMATCH". Why?!?!?! And, what do I do about it?!?!

I cannot use your link to answer adds on craigslist from my laptop (but can use the olink on my tablet). People have even told me they have not got my copy and paste inquiries. what can I do.

I can't reply to ads on CL at all. I click the reply button for items I want to ask about buying, but nothing happens. The map feature also doesn't respond to clicking on it. Anybody know what gives?

Have been on Craigslist every day for the past week or so looking for a car. Logged off at 10pm last night, can't get on at 1pm today via Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. Says IP address is blocked. No reason it should be. Have tried various Craigslist city directories around the country with the same results.

I cannot access CL! All day today we have had issues. It is either up or it is down. We do not have ads posted and we get the IP address has been blocked issue.

I try to log in today and it's telling me my IP has been automatically blocked. I only have one for sale ad for a DVD currently running and I've never spammed the site ever. I have Static IP so it's not a case of being able to just unplug modem and have a new IP when I try to log back in. I have message into them via email asking what is up with this. I hope they fix it. This is crazy as there is no reason I should have been banned. Very strange indeed.

Several sites have been down for most of the day for us, seems to be west coast related (we're in Las Vegas). Craigslist is one of them. Anyone else having issues? We get Facebook and many others so it's just part of the web.

Since yesterday evening, April 4, all links in the 'For Sale' items are redirected to a map. This happens for all craigslist locations that I tried, about 4.

Update: I figured it out. There are 4 links at the top of results 'list' 'thumb' gallery' 'map'. Whichever was the last one used, will be used in the next search. Just need to click a different view.

12/28/13 Craigslist has been down for me for over 3 days. Neither Firefox nor IE can open main or individual city sites. I haven't tried changing my DNS, yet. Don't really want to fix what ain't broken... i.e. every other website I visit is working fine. Otherwise, no viruses, no issues, everything up-to-date. Oddly, my issue accessing CL only began after updating FF to v. 26.0, but I don't see how that would affect IE.

Craigslist may be "up", but the city sites work like c**p. Some displays don't show unless you move your mouse over them, ... and if you bring up a city site in the same window that you had something else in, the previous web-page is still there, but the craigslist text is just "on top" of it, ... as the other web-page is still being displayed. And as I mentioned, some of the text and "button links" don't show up unless you move your mouse over them, and then they "majically" appear. I don't think I've ever seen a web-page respond like this since the internet has come into being. I hope someone gets this taken care of soon, ... but for the time being, I'm staying away. Perhaps check it before I hit the sack, or tomorrow morning.

Acting wierd in NC. I can get the "home page" to Craigs list but when I choose a topic to drill down on, like "Farm & Garden", my Blackberry just chugs and chugs and eventually I get a "Communication Failure". I am amazed that a company of this size does not have a legitimate "help desk" to field issues like this. Won't be buying stock in them anytime soon!!
