Frequently Asked Questions about Cortree

Yes, you do. It’s incredibly quick and easy to sign up, just register here  [link to registration page], and we’ll send you a welcome email with your username, as well as a temporary password.

Most likely, we just haven’t seen your request yet. If you submitted your registration during business hours (EST), there’s a good chance you’ll get your welcome email during the same day (sometimes within the hour). If the request was sent outside business hours, we’d recommend checking the next day. 

Occasionally, email filters sort new emails into junk mail without prompting you to see if you recognize the incoming web address. If you haven’t heard from us, check your junk and spam folders first. When that doesn’t help, email [email protected] and one of us will follow up with you directly.

The first thing to check is that you’re entering the username or password exactly as it was created. They’re case sensitive, so forgetting a capital letter (or leaving caps lock on) will cause it to be rejected.

If you’ve just forgotten your password, you can use the password reset function built into the login screen to choose a new password, and then the system will prompt you with your next steps.

If you’ve forgotten both of your credentials, please use the built-in help button, and we’ll provide your account information to you by email.

Yes, we do! We welcome the opportunity to work alongside new sponsors to develop new content. If you email [email protected], we’ll follow up with you directly to discuss.
