Beta website is not ready

Do not auto redirect to beta version of website by default. It is not ready for prime time, is missing many features, and doesn't format correctly on mobile.

    Admin response

    The beta website is not out officially yet, you're being redirected to it on certain pages only when the 'old' website is experiencing loads issues.

    Many features are still being worked on to be added to the beta website before it will be fully transitioned to, and obviously we're working to add the existing features from the old one to the new one. This is a matter of time, and while it might seem like you're getting the beta website by default, the alternative is an error/maintenance on the old website, so this is just a temporary redirection to prevent that.

    We're sorry about any inconvenience, we know how important this is to you, and our dev team is working around the clock to add features and improve the new website so it can answer your needs and be stable.

    We’re updating about changes to the website on our Discord server, whether it’s a maintenance, a known issue, or a temporary redirection for certain pages. You’re welcome to join to stay updated -

    You can also check the CurseForge roadmap on Trello to see recently shipped and upcoming features to the new website:

    I'll prefer an option to disable or enable the beta redirect rather than force ourselves to use it

    I agree with others comments. Turn off the beta redirect until it is actually ready (and working). Its frustrating trying to upload changes when they never get reflected and I have no way of knowing if the upload worked or not. If there are load issues, to me that's an issue that should be addressed with more priority than implementing new features of the website.

    also your solution only works for people wanting to manage their own mods that they have already uploaded, it does nothing for the fact that the ability to comment on things is broken (attempting to comment goes to the description page of the mod again with no way to actually type the comment and there isn't a place to type on the comment page so you literally cannot comment on a mod)

    Ok so I'm apparently in the minority as far as liking the look of the beta version of the site, however it is almost impossible to actually do anything on the beta version of the site because so much of it isn't implemented yet, and the redirect seems to happen on every attempt to access curseforge not just sometimes, so unless you want to tell me you broke the site completely and now it can't handle normal levels of traffic without experiencing load issues your response is bull. Please just add a button to toggle between the two versions of the website so we have an easy way to get back to the working version of the site if you're going to force a redirect normally

    You've also broken project creation... just doesn't load or ends up with a cloudflare 'could not reach' error...

    -1000/10 this should not have been released...

    Btw dont forget we need the website for the modpack devs
    so unless you add a better way to updated modpacks to public on the app. please take off the beta site

    not to mention the modpack I've been making is now even harder to make due me scrolling 128 pages and now, I can't go any further, and I can't look for only forge mods on the new website, so either convert it back or we find some other website to use.

    lmao the admin response is complete bs, it sends you to the beta website every time you try to do anything on the original and BETTER version of the website, I'm honestly convinced that they're trying to make the website garbage so people use their app instead.

    I have a modpack in development and cant access it because of the auto redirect

    Not being able to view mod dependencies on download pages like on the old site makes CurseForge absolutely unsuable - who thought that would be a good idea?

    It was fine when you weren't forced to use it but now I can't even use the old one

    It's not Mobile friendly at all, it doesn't work on Portrait style monitors, it's just all around bad. I don't have anything positive to say about it, just revert please there was nothing wrong with the old one.

    >Every second I use this page I find 100 new reasons to dislike it, now

    sorry, accidentally pressed on "Post comment", I found that you literally cannot access the mods page, you are forced to get a modpack or get the road, wtf is their problem
