We've been working on a new design for the site - and we'd love to get some feedback.
It's up at http://beta.cutoutandkeep.net
It should look good on Chrome, Safari and Firefox. We'll fix it up on Internet Explorer soon.
...and we'll be spending a ton of time making the boards work well too!
What do you think?
It looks fabulous! It's so much easier to access many of the different features from all around the site. I also love the new Crafty Superstars page. And I love the featured/popular projects for each category instead of just all projects. The Featured Member was a great idea, too. The site just looks so much more professional. The only change I would like to see right now is the option to not fill in all parts of my location. For privacy reasons, I would like to fill in just my country and state, but it auto-fills to a random city when I leave it blank. And I would also like to see an option to select whether you would like to see large pages as one continuous page (like on the projects page) or as separate pages where you choose the page number to navigate (like on the old projects page). Other than that, it looks fantastic!
Love it! I love the featured member thing, it helps to promote crafters so people can see what projects they've published so they don't go unnoticed!
There wil be a Featured Member interview to go along with it which should be up on Monday!
I don't get along with new designs so easily, but this one I love! I also very much like the new Crafty Superstar page, and of course the Featured Member thing! Congratulations on making such a nice new design my thumbs are up!
I love it. It looks a lot better than the old design. But it's still not working too great on Internet Explorer.
woooow!!! when i entered the site i was like whats up here?! it´s great!!!! so many new things to discover! you did a really great job!!
did you add something for notifications later or did you dismissed that idea? or i didn´t relocate it yet?!
Bit hard to navigate on an iPad, keeps clicking random things, will try on my laptop later. Like the look ofit though and the featured member and the map of where all the members are from is cool too
Yeah I was also wondering about the Notification thing. But I must say that I LOVE all the changes made the the Messages page! The little trash can / Delete is great! I really so like the new set up Can't wait for Snippets too.
We have big plans for notifications and hope to be rolling them over the next month!
What I just noticed is, when I opened my projects via the pop down menu under profile, I can see all my projects from the beginning but I'm not able to click on them, they won't open. I have to go directly to my profile page and choose "See all projects" if I want to really open one.
Just a tiny thing. Nothing disturbing really.
Oh, and I hope it was understandable :/
Hey Lilly, thanks for that - we'll make sure you can click them!
I really liked the new site!! congratulations for the amazing job!
for some reason, though, the only page I can't access is the board... for your information.
It's so beautiful and organized... really liked what you made guys!
I like the new layout for the boards so far, but I am having problems being able to clearly see the text box when typing on my iphone. Those darn scrolling banners block my view no matter which way I turn the phone I do everything on the go, so this is no bueno for me. That's the only thing I've notice not going smoothly.
Oh and something I just now noticed-
Where are all the messages? I only have 1 page of messages I can see, but I used to have a billion. I don't still need them all, lol but some that should be on the 2nd page of messages were important.
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
