At the moment, none of the stored pictures (tags) appear to be working. You may get an error message if you try to use one. Just remove the tag and your post should appear just fine.

If you can post tags, please let me know.

Is this all a problem with who owns the main page ?

No this has nothing to do with that. West did an upgrade to the backbone OS for the board and something got glitchy. He was just too busy to work on it for the first week but then had enough time to get things back together. The front page is still not back up because he hasn't had time to work on that and the forums were the first priority.

Not sure when the front page will be back but I understand that's the goal.

Since Friday,
I haven’t been able to access WSI on my home WiFi. I can access through my phone’s cell data no problem. The issue with the home WiFi is regardless of device or browser. Any ideas of what might be the problem or if others are having a similar issue?

I tried flyingsock.com and clearing the browser cache. Still the same problem.

....in fact, I just turned off my home wifi and connected my computer via my phone's hotspot and I'm getting through no problem. If I go back to my regular home wifi connection, once again I can't access WSI.

I not having this problem accessing anything else online - just WSI (and the wsiforums PI site too). I have an Xfinity home wifi and router if that matters.

One simple trick might be to shut down the Internet completely by unplugging the modem and taking out the battery if you have one. Let it sit at least two minutes before turning it back on. That might solve the problem.

There's also a way to clear your router cache, but I don't know how to do it and if this is Xfinity equipment not sure if you can. Might try that. Another option is to create a new home network and see if that helps. If you have Comcast do you have access to the Xfinity hotspot capability and if so try that just to test.

I tried unplugging the router and also going into the firmware menu to reboot it. It still wasn't working....but inexplicably WSI started coming through again this afternoon. So, I'm able to access the site once again.
