When lots of visitors visit the upwork site sometimes it goes down. try to refresh the page or wait 5/10 min it will be fixed automatically.

I figured it out.  There is a bug on their site when you try to repost a job by first clicking on the old job.  Instead, you have to post a job as you normally would and then copy the description from the previous job.


Kind of frustrating that this site offers no online help chat.  All that it did was redirect me to their knowledge base which, not surprisingly, doesn't do much for help with bugs.

Hi Don,


I apologize for the inconvenience. There were some issues with some of Upwork pages earlier. They should be fixed for all users now. If you continue getting the error, please let us know.
