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.

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.

Elaine Fortin · 5 April 2014 - 06:06

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.

Elaine Fortin · 5 April 2014 - 06:00

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.

Susan Cox · 3 April 2014 - 08:16

nothing happens when i hit the reply button to respond to posts!! uuggghhh

Natalie Mecom · 27 December 2013 - 22:47

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.

Patti Cotrone · 23 December 2013 - 22:52

yesterday i was able to reply to job postings today i hit reply it acknowledges its doing it but nothing happens how do i fix this

Laura Hartert · 16 December 2013 - 09:10

Aj Kaltenbach · 6 December 2013 - 07:26

I can access the site but there have been no new postings for the past 3 days. When I try to click on the posting I get a 'page not found' error?

Lisa Meyers Cramer · 3 December 2013 - 10:56

CL is trying to charge me $5 to post anything. I have drafts I cannot delete. No it's saying that all of my ads are expired. What's going on???

Vera Nomo Gi Jane · 26 November 2013 - 20:08

When I open CL I have pop-up ads in the middle of ads and my Internet Explorer stops working. It is only on CL not on any other site.

Donald Bice · 20 November 2013 - 05:44

Tim Snlcc · 7 November 2013 - 13:10

It works on this site, this was created by some guy to allow clickable links, works like a charm except the map feature doesn't work. The website is or you can replace the "craigslist" with "cllink" you will not notice the difference.

Viva AutoSales · 7 November 2013 - 11:18

Links are still not working for cl hopefully the will correct it and not just dis-allow them :(

Leo Matthews · 6 November 2013 - 21:30

All day, I repeat.

Aparajith KV · 22 August 2013 - 15:40

Tim Yoak · 3 August 2013 - 17:37

albany is down right now, you can click on search and it's forever loading, I already know about clearing cookies etc, everything else works except for craigslist

Tara Allen · 24 July 2013 - 07:54

Not able to access at all. Just hangs up my Internet Explorer. Can't reach the Baton Rouge or New Orleans sites.

Eric McDowell · 11 July 2013 - 19:31

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.

Thomas Stott · 9 July 2013 - 09:22

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!!

Iva Ashley · 25 June 2013 - 14:19

All I get are the topics on craigslist. when I mouse over the subtopics I see them but its mostly a blank page and has been for quite a while

April Williams · 22 June 2013 - 11:34

I keep getting shut down when logging in or working on my post. I can view Mobile, AL okay but once I start to post or work on old post it shuts down. Please fix it.

Magen Eliza · 20 June 2013 - 07:55
