can't access site from home Sign In

Hello admin. I am having a problem accessing this site from my home computers. When I click on the favorites, it gives me a message that the page I am trying to access is not available. It works fine from the shop, but I have more free time at home than at the shop. is there anything I should be doing differently. I may try to go straight to car junky and see if I can access it directly from the web browser. Just wondering if I am the only one, and if I am, must be settings on home puters.

I can type in the wwebsite and can read the posts, but when I try to post a reply, I can not type anything in. It is like it resets and will not allow access to it. All the little icons on top of the reply box will get black, the courser comes up, then the little icons go gray and the courser dissappears. All this happens in less than a second.

Hmm.. This happens to me once in a while.

You can post a message if you click on the switch to basic editor button.

Its located at the bottom on the window you type into. right above the browse button.

Now I cant access the url either. I can get to the page, but will not allow me to log in. Might need to try to re-register with a different username and password??

I'm going to look into this a bit more, and I'll try creating a page that test your browser to see what you have on that computer.

Does this only happen in a few areas or different sections or does it happen everywhere?

I've been looking into this and it happens to me once in a while but, i just click the switch to basic editor button below the area where you type in and it allows me to post a message.

Been posting from the shop and not at home. I think I finally got in. Must have been a problem with the shortcut on the computer. I can delete everything to the right of the slash and I can access the forum.

I noticed you have been posting more, did you work out the issue from home?
