When I try to post (usually happens with Chrome), I get this error message:

Error 503 Service Unavailable
Service Unavailable

Varnish cache server

I asked Jane about it, but got no response. Has anyone else had this problem?

I had trouble the other day with being asked repeatedly to log in. Usually it's just issues with either their servers or our Internet connection. Just keep trying. A message like that can literally be something that is already "fixed" by the time the message appears or it may be something that lasts a long time.

You can always try a different browser to see if that makes any difference as well. Not a biggie unless it happens every day. In that case, it's probably on your end and you may be having issues with your service provider.

Thanks, Betsy.... I usually do use Firefox and just occasionally use Chrome... each browser has its own strengths and weaknesses, so I tend to switch back and forth. I was just wondering why the error crops up and if anyone else has had a problem.

I had that error off and on for a few days.

Tech has been doing a few things to the server over the last week, so the error message may be coming from that. I'll pass this thread along just to make sure they are aware.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

Still happening for anyone?

I tested it with Chrome just a few minutes ago, and all is well! Thank you!
