    Over the last few days when I click “Freshly Pressed” or “Read Blogs” it takes me to the home page but does not load anything. There is just the little loading page symbol. I’ve tried leaving it for nearly an hour but nothing loads

    I’m using the same computer I always do!

    I like browsing blogs etc so really want this fixed. Could someone suggest whats gone wrong? Thanks Becky

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

    What browser and version are you using? Have you updated flash and enabled javascript? I have to ask.

    Yeah when I click any of the tabs on the home page such as Topics, My Blogs, Read Blogs, New Post and Freshly pressed it doesn’t load anything.

    Just tried viewing them on my iphone though and it worked so can’t be my account it must be the computer?

    So frustrating!

    IE6 and IE7 are no longer supported and have not been supported for some time now. See what Staff had to say here > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/05/19/just-write/ I suggest the you install a Firefox 9.0.1 browser. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

    I’m on Windows XP and have IE8. I cannot upgrade to IE9 however it matters not to me as I rarely use IE8. When I do I use the compatibility mode. My main browser is Firefox 9.0.1 and suggest that you also download it and run it. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

    I am on IE9 and am having the same issue. When logged in on the same computer under a different user, everything works fine, so I expect it is something about the configuration of my browser under this user. It worked fine until a few days ago and I didn’t change anything, so there must have been some change behind the scenes at wp. If I figure out which setting it is, I’ll report back to the thread

    I have also just tried logging out but using the same computer and I could see the freshly pressed page/ home page!

    I can’t just download a new web browser because Im at work and I dont have my own computer at home. Is there anything that can be done so I can view blogs under IE8??

    Virginiadiaz – yes please let me know if you manage to get it to work!

    This seems to be working well for me. Are you folks still having trouble?

    If so, please try clearing your browser’s cookies and cache: http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/

    I tried that, still having the problem. Never had it before yesterday.

    Mozilla worked perfectly. Yea

    Can’t access either – it eventually times out. My wife’s hasn’t updated since this morning. We are both using IE 9.0.8.

    We have both cleared our cache.

    I can see freshly pressed and read blogs – but it hasn’t been updated since I was on at 6 this morning – I thought I had made a mistake with my post and it got blocked.

    People who are following me say they are accessing my post today through comments – not through Read Blogs – they can’t see it.

    @veghotpot

    I logged out of WordPress and then logged back in – it appears resolved now. Read Blogs updated.

    I tried it but I’m still getting the page loading symbol.
