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 craigslist.com

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.

WHY is the "Post to Classifieds" at Los Angeles CL in FILIPINO? The language setting is "English" but when you click to post, you get FILIPINO. For GOD'S SAKE, FIX THIS!!!!

Los Angeles craigslist--face page is in English, with "language" set to English, but when you hit "post to classifieds" it is foreign-language gobbledygook. Been that way for days now. Multiple ads I can not post because of these incompetent CL assholes.

Do the owners of this company even care in the slightest about doing this right?

Bill Child · 31 January 2016 - 21:54

Starting a few days ago, whenever I try to post an ad it says 'blocked'. When I edit the ad, it reports:

"Some required information is missing or incorrect.
Please correct the fields marked in red:
Please supply a value for the 'language of posting' field."

The language field shows 'english' but it is highlighted in red. I can change it to any language listed but it will still never publish with the "blocked" error.

If I re-edit the ad, it shows the same language error. Reposting a previously published ad, or creating a brand new ad always shows this same error, so nothing is posting anymore.

This started a few days ago.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Hi Heather. First it seems as though comcast fixed the problem. I for one called them and let them know of problem. Anyway, if you're only using pc you have no other alternatives.. Turning off wifi on your computer wouldn't get you anywhere.
Turning off wifi on a phone, however (ìf its using your home's router wifi, will force the phone to use the carriers data network instead. . .be it tmobile, att or whatever. That's how those of us that were using our phones to connect to craigslist , bypassing the home network (ie; comcast), were able to connect just fine.
