Site itself works but not citation generation/finalization. :(
Seems to be an endless loading screen going on when trying to finalize website details for an APA citation. I've been using it for years in education, but it always worked; however, it's also not working in other browsers. Sure the site generally works but the generation of citations are not working right now it seems because it's stuck in an endless loading loop.

It seems as if advertisements have taken over for citation machine. Originally you were asked to watch an ad, then be allowed to use the program, not the program, which many universities rely on is locked up for an hour at a time while it runs a series of ads finally allowing one to access it;'s material. This has happened numerous times in the past weeks, previously I had never seen this problem with the program.

The login page is not displaying and entry fields, just the background image, so you can't login right now. (Very frustrating, as I have a paper to finish!)
