Final reminder: Forum shut-off today 1 p.m. EST

Postby CreditCardGuru » Wed Apr 22, 2015 10:58 am

Just a final reminder that we are switching to a new forum software -- and that any posts and profile changes added after 1 p.m. Eastern (Noon Central) today will not be ported over to the new version. Assuming a smooth migration, you can continue to post as usual after midnight (Central time) tonight (1 a.m. Eastern on Thurs 4/23).


For more details, go here: http://creditcardforum.com/general-credit-card-talk/11658-update-final-instructions-forum-blackout-period-redesign.html


Thanks so much for your patience, everyone!

I see that the forums are already back up. I like the design change a lot so far.

So I had to use the "lost my password" function to be able to log in even if I was using my correct password. Hopefully this would be some useful tip for whoever can't log in.

Yes, we launched a little ahead of our Midnight deadline. There are a number of fairly minor glitches that we will be cleaning up over the next few days but hopefully we will get everything resolved by the weekend. We're excited about the new look and feel as well - thanks!

Likewise. It was the strangest part about this whole upgrade to the site. I was not expecting it.

Much of the text is too small, and too low contrast. I can't read the name of the most recent poster on the list of forums, for instance.

I initially liked it more when I first saw it making that comment but honestly it's taking me a while to get used to. Way too much spreading out of the stuff on the page. It needs to be spaced closer so that you don't have those credit card suggestions in the middle of it.

Also everyone's sig has disappeared.

Actually you can turn on signature in the reply page.

Or go to User Control Panel - Board Preferences - Edit Posting Defaults, turn on "Attach my signature by default".

Right now the signature takes up the entire page width instead of the width of just a post.
