LDS.ORG Home Page

Post by techgy »

The home page of lds.org is NOT opening. I've tried this on two different computers and a tablet.
Appears to be problem in SLC.

Interesting; it works for me. Was it a temporary outage, or is it still not working?
What URL are you loading?
What browser(s) are you using?

Note that "lds.org" should re-direct you to "www.lds.org". That's not just semantics, that's a completely different server location. "lds.org" is hosted by the church while "www.lds.org" is hosted by a major hosting company.

Perhaps just the "lds.org" server was down. It seems to be re-directing now.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.

So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

it's still not opening. Doesn't matter what URL is used. If I enter lds.org it redirects to http://www.lds.org.
I've also tried https://www.lds.org to no avail. I get the same result regardless as to whether I use my tablet, or two different computers.

I'll try rebooting the modem and router. However, I'm having no problems with other sites. By the way, I can open other lds.org sites with no problems.

If you have Comcast, it may be the problem described in LDS.org not working inside firewall.

Nope. I'm using Time Warner. Yesterday afternoon it started working again. It was intermittent for a while then cleared up. I WAS able to login to the lds.org site by going directly to a different page than the home page (lds.org), such as the directory, calendar, etc.

This morning all's normal. Definitely weird.
