I get 404 error reports every time I try to submit a site no matter what category. Either there is something flawed in the directions or the site is broken. If it is so difficult to use the site, why is the site so "highly regarded" by others?

Any solutions out there?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld

I'm not surprised you're having problems. DMOZ closed down in March 14, 2017 .

@JHowardCo: welcome to the forum!

DMOZ, as noted above, as been inactive for quite some time.

IIRC they stopped accepted submissions quite a time before the site went offline.
