Cannot access/ load blog or admin page on home computer

  1. Recently I have been having trouble loading my blog on my home computer. All other webpages seem to be fine. I can access the wordpress.com intro page, but when I attempt to log in it just turns around forever, and then finally says the page cannot be loaded. The same problem occurs if I just try to load the blog (i.e. without the admin page).

    This problem appears on Firefox as well as Google Chrome.

    However, I can access my blog from my work computer, and the blog is obviously still visible for users.

    Anyone have any ideas? Possibly some kind of virus or malware in my computer? Thank you so much if you can help...

    The blog I need help with is interissueforum.wordpress.com.

  2. If this is the blog you are talking about, http://interissueforum.wordpress.com/ , then it loads just fine for me. I would however suggest setting the number of posts to show on a page to something like 5. With that big image of the newspaper, it takes a while to load.

    Log out of wordpress, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then try again.

  3. The sacred Path,

    Thanks for your help. Yes I was aware that others can see my blog. The problem is that I cannot access it from my home computer, but I can access it from my work computer (the one I am using now). For obvious reasons, I cannot continue to use my blog from work, so if I cannot solve this problem about access from my home computer I will have to stop blogging.

    I tried what you suggested- I logged out, I cleared the history and the cookies ( I assume clearing history also clears the cache, right?). In fact, I did this on all three browsers installed on my computer. It still did not solve this problem.

    A description of the problem:
    - I can access the wordpress.com page.
    - I can log in to wordpress, and log out.
    -however, I cannot access any admin page, such as new post, stats, etc. Nor can I access the support page.
    - I cannot access any other wordpress blogs (i.e. including those on the front page of the wordpress.com site.)
    -I can access other wordpress blogs and my own blog through google's cached copies
    -I can access my own blog (and presumably others) through a proxy website

    It seems unlikely, but it is possible my ISP is blocking wordpress, as the situation seems similar to what I experienced in China.

    I may be doing something wrong, in terms of clearing the cache, etc. but I don't think so. I don't know what to do and it is very frustrating.

    Anyone help? Please!
