We’d also like to take this time to educate authors on some things about hosting your mods on CurseForge. We’ve had a great initial adoption of our hosting platform, but it seems that we might have been pushing CurseForge so much we haven’t explained how it syncs with Curse.com very well.
For starters, CurseForge is the hosting site for authors. Once you have a project up and running and you have a beta or released mod attached to it, you should be sending users to Curse.com to download your mod, do not send them to CurseForge.
You can easily find the link to your project on Curse.com from your project page on CurseForge, on the right side panel there’s link under the heading “Curse link”. That will take you directly to your Curse.com page and you can use that page to share your project. But, on MinecraftForums.com, we have a great way of inserting download links without any hassle! We have a special BBCode that inserts a great looking download button complete with your mods logo/image that is attached to your project. Here’s what the BBCode looks like with an example:
Again, we’d really like to thank everyone who has uploaded mods to CurseForge and got us to where we are today. We have big plans for the growing database in the coming months and we really appreciate the participation by the Minecraft Community! Lastly, check out the database of over 500 mods here!

After a long wait, we are happy to announce the addition of Amazon.ca Gift Cards to the CurseForge Store! No longer are Canadian authors locked into PayPal for their point expenditures; we have $10, $20, $50, and $100 Gift Cards in stock now.

Today we launch our new store! This is the first in a series of releases that will revamp the whole of CurseForge and all the sites powered by it. Through this we'll be modernizing the layout and style of the sites as well as addressing the long standing concerns many of our authors have had.
It's important to know that many actions related to points need to be completed from within the new store. Purchasing points, viewing your totals and history, as well as transferring points to other users. Project reward splits are still configured on the current site.
Below you'll find a nice screenshot of the general layout of the new store. We already have a list of improvements for the next iteration. You have my word that they'll be here soon, but please give us your feedback as well. We'd love to know what you guys think.
The new store can be found at store.curseforge.com.

We've taken the store offline for maintenance. Don't worry, this has no effect on your points or your orders. It will be back online later today.

Earlier today, we migrated to a shiny new stack on shiny new servers. As part of this, we're also migrating the repository services, which will remain offline for a little while longer.
Not to worry, your repositories are safe and sound, we're just doing the repository server move out of band of the main migration.
I'll update this post once repository services are back online.
Update: Repo services have been restored.
