Important new information and details (including screen shots of our new look) are below…
As you've probably noticed, we've just launched our site re-design. Our new look makes our site mobile-responsive and adds a few new features we hope you'll find useful. We're still fixing some issues -- and if you encounter any problems, please send a private message to the CreditCardGuru account. Here's what you need to know:-You will NOT need to re-register.
Your status (whether you're a "Green, Gold, Platinum or Centurion" member) will be preserved, as will your post count, avatar and signature. We have heard from some users who are having trouble logging in
, and we're looking into the issue. In the meantime, using the "lost password" feature and re-setting your password seems to be a quick fix.-If you'd like to give us feedback after the re-design, please contact us directly.
If you have suggestions, or if you encounter problems post-migration, please send a private message to the CreditCardGuru account. We will be checking this account frequently and quickly respond to any issues. -Very little should change in how you start threads or post responses.
In fact, we think it will take very little time to get used to our new look. To ease the transition, though, here are a few screen shots showing the new location of some important and popular features:
1. On a laptop/desktop, you will now log in
from the top right of the page:
On a mobile device, you'll log in at the top of the screen:
2. To see new posts/threads
added since your last log in, click on "New posts" below the CCF banner:On the mobile site, you'll tap this icon:
You can also view unanswered posts (threads with 0 responses) and unread posts (threads that you haven't read all the way through).
3. To manage your signature, avatar and other profile details
, click on "User Control Panel" in the top right of the screen (top of the screen on mobile):
... then click on "Profile" to display all the customization options:
4. To send private messages
, click "Private messages" in the top right (top on mobile), near the login/logout area:
Then just fill in the message fields. With the new system, it's important to click the "Add" button after you type in the recipient's name.
If you don't do so, the message won't send after you click "submit:"
5. Change your settings to receive new private messages when your inbox is full
: If your inbox is full, you won't be able to receive new messages, unless you change the default setting. To do so, navigate to the "private msg" screen, then select "rules, folders & settings." At the bottom, fill in the bubble for "delete oldest messages." Then hit the "Change" button.
If you'd like detailed instructions for any other features, please respond to this thread, or send our team a private message at the CreditCardGuru account.
Thanks for your patience as we improve the site. The combined expertise and helpfulness of our CreditCardForum community is invaluable – and that's one thing we don't want to change.
