Obsidian Community Plugins not opening

Hey guys, I don’t know since when this problem has been underlying, but just recently when trying to install a new plugin, I realised that my community plugins section was not opening no matter what I tried, error: “Failed to load community plugins”. Everything related to sync seems to be not working, my Zotero integration using Citations plugin is also non-functioning, if I try to check for updates (of Obsidian and community plugins) that too gets stuck forever etc.

Things I tried:

  1. Restarting my laptop (MacOS, Sonoma)
  2. Uninstalling and reinstalling Obsidian
  3. Uninstalling and reinstalling Zotero
  4. Tried almost every fix mentioned in the forums, including using VPNs (yes, I am from India as well, like some previous users mentioning the same issue).
  5. I even tried using a completely different vault, didn’t work.
  6. I have also tried flushing my DNS, didn’t work either.

I hope there is some fix to this. It’s been days, and I’m already on the verge of switching to some PKM system as I reply quite heavily on daily PKM use. If there is no solution yet, would really appreciate some suggestions apart from Logseq :slight_smile:

Thank you!

Are you able to access this link in your browser?


You mentioned using a VPN and flushing DNS, but did you try changing your DNS servers to or or something else?

Hi! The problem is now fixed, both the Zotero integration and the non-working of other community plugins.

Fix (thanks to your suggestion): I changed my DNS server to, once that worked, I didn’t bother with the one.

The link of “raw.githubusercontent.com…” was not opening before the change, now it just shows a lot of code (I hope that’s what its meant to be showing).

Thanks for the help!
