PG The New Upgrade
Posted on
Make A New Topic In This Forum
 Sissy Kiss got a new upgrade!   These are some of the new features:

 *  A new post wall on the entrance, and many parts of the site! =D It makes it so you can see every post, and comment on one page! I couldn't list all the features compressed into the post wall lol! It almost brings the whole site to one page. 

 *  Upload videos, and audios as the main part of the post!

 *  Have a draft automatically saved while making a post, so if something happens ( like a slow connection, computer crash, etc. ) you have a backup of your post before it's posted. Up to a hundred of your latest drafts can be saved! We have the space for it! =)

 *  Heart, or heart break posts! They are sort of like a like, and dislike buttons.

 *  Private messages a new updated design.

 *  You can make a new post on any page. A pop in window shows up.

 *  We also went back to the Xat Chat! Many people liked that chat better, and our current one wasn't working out.

 *  The message editor is more compact, resigned, and easy to use!

 *  If you're making a long post, like a story, the editor buttons follow you as you scroll down. So you don't have to keep scrolling up, and down to design your post.

If you find a glitch don't worry! It's common after recently upgrading, and I thoroughly checked for glitches before upgrading, but if you find any just send me an email our contact page. I'll be definitely be able to fix them!

These lovely people support all the features in Sissy Kiss to contribute to our community! So it would help so much if you could check them out, and say your from Sissy Kiss. Some even give discounts, or free gifts by mentioning it!

Is there a way that we can go back to the old style?  There are several key features that I use every single day that are just simply...gone.

1.  I have a Private Message chain that is over 12 pages long and several more that are around 5 pages long.  When I go to click on those chains, all I see is the first message and nothing else.  We were replying to each others message and not creating new ones.  Are all those other messages just gone?  Why can't I see the entire chain?  How are we supposed to continue the conversation?

2.  My Subscription page is just...gone.  That used to be on the front page and now it is not even there any more.

3.  The 'Recent Forum Post' is just...gone.  Yes, I know it is replaced with all of the topics on the front page, but I am talking about Posts, not topics.  Let's say somebody replies to a topic that was created Months ago, nobody would see it because it wouldn't show up on the front page.  I am writing in several roleplays where the topic was started months ago.  How about I supposed to know if a new post was written?

4.  To find my Roleplaying stories, I have to go to the forum.  I then have to scroll down to find my particular stories.  Once there, I can only click on the beginning of the topic.  One Roleplaying story has over 270 replies.  To get to the last reply, I have to click 27 times as it only loads 10 replies at once.  Other stories are close to 200 replies and several more with over 20 replies.  So, the button that will take you to the end of the topic is just...gone.

I don't want to sound ungrateful because I am not.  However, the most important features of the site just suddenly disappeared and I don't know how to work the new layout into what I am going to do.

Hopefully, all of my questions have answers and that they can be easily solved.  These seem like easy fixes, but I'm afraid of things just disappearing that I use every time I log in.

  Hi Miss Annie, I can definitely try to add, or compromise any features people see missing that they want. 

1. That's an issue I'll fix ASAP.

2. & 3. I'll see if I can make a subscriptions wall, and a page that showed the latest posts. I didn't do it before because it meant making the entrance page load a lot slower since more functions were involved. I'll try to find a way around that. Also you can subscribe to instantly receive emails when a new comment is made in a topic, by going to the topic page, and pressing the subscribe button. Press the titles in the post wall to go to that topic's full page. You can also get instant emails when someone replies to you anywhere by pressing "Settings" at the bottom of the screen, then "Email & Subscription Settings"

4. The reply button was not meant to be used that way lol. In a role playing topic you need to reply to the topic to add to the roleplaying story, instead of making a very long reply thread. If I have time to I'll try to add advanced pagination buttons to the reply comments.

@ ~*Christie Luv*~
  First of all, thank you very much for being so open and for answering all of my questions.

1.  I'm glad to hear that the PM issue will soon be fixed as I would hate to loose all of those messages.

2. & 3.  A page that showed the latest posts would be absolutely unbelievable and help me out immensely.  I used to live on that page, so to see it return would be amazing.  I do know about the email & subscription settings, but I didn't like the idea of cluttering up my inbox all the time and it was easier for me to check Sissy Kiss than that email address, so that is why I never used it.

4.  The reason I would reply to the most recent post instead of the topic thread was because the post would go to the top, so that the thread would look out of order.  You would have the first post, followed by the most recent and the next recent and so on and so on.  Also, the box to reply was at the top while the reply button was right underneath the latest post.  I didn't want to be scrolling all the time to find the post I was trying to reply to as I would rather have it right above me.  An advanced pagination button or that button where you click and it sends you to the last reply in the thread would help out tremendously.

I am mostly replying from a Roleplaying perspective because that is what I mainly use Sissy Kiss for.  I think the Recent Forum Posts button would help out the site as a whole, but I believe I am getting used to the new front page.  It makes finding all the 'new topics' much easier.

  Thank you Baby Butch! I also got your email with the list of glitches, and I'm on my way to fixing them. Don't worry, this stuff usually happens with recent upgrades, and can fix any we find.

Hmm, interesting upgrade. Like Miss Annie I miss the old latest posts page. The chat page is empty (I assume you're still working on that) and finally I seem to have a phantom PM, the popup thingy at the bottom of the page claims I have a new message but everything in my inbox has been read. 

EDIT: the chat seems to be working now, must have been my end.

Urgent help needed. Image posting does not work at all. I went to Captioned Piccies and clicked in the box that says Want To Post Something?

Nothing at all happened. I then went to Baby Butch's Gallery and clicked in the same box.

The editor opened and I clicked on the Image picture. The flashing hearts never stopped so I could not post there either.

Lastly I went to the same box here on this login page. It appeared to work at first. I could only upload one cappie of five.

I did fill in the appropriate boxes. I did click on the dashed square. No other images would upload and the Add Selected Image To Your Post button is not present to use.

I tried it the other way by clicking the blue Icon above. I uploaded images and they are huge and covered this page and all related controls.

After more than an hour and much frustration I have given up! What is wrong with all of this?

  Hi Baby Butch! Sorry the flashing hearts staying was from the site loading slowly. I've optimized the site now, and I have ideas to make the site not take up so much load so it will load faster.

Sorry the main image poster was only meant to upload one image at a time. I could design it for bundle image posts. That could be a future feature, but for now you can just make a forum topic, and add multiple images to that post if you want to post multiple images at once.

 Did you mean the window that displays the images you uploaded covered the whole page? I redesigned that window with the images to the side of the drag, and drop area. So you can see everything at once, and it is a lot bigger, but it works. You can just select an image in your currently uploaded images, and press "Add selected images", and they will appear in your post.

Why did this double post? I did not click on it twice only once. Everything is acting very slow for me. Lucky if anything appears on the page at all.

 I am very stubborn about doing things. My latest attempts to post a cappie have all failed.

At one point I had all 5 cappies in this editor and all fields filled in properly. I hit send and a message showed asking me to upload pictures.

They were already uploaded and showing in this editor. When I tried again and again the Image Uploader would not appear on the screen.

When I clicked on what Forum I would like to post in Image forums are not even on the list of options.

Help is needed severely!!!!!

  I'm on the way to check these out. Also this does mean I need to make the image bundle feature sooner. That's on high priority.

Thanks for replying. The images went out of the text box and covered other posts.

I will post from gallery but like I said those did not respond.

I will be patient and give you time to look at things. *Hugs*

  Hi Miki! The left side bar is the site menu you can use the browse the site. Last night I fixed the broken links. To go to the Random Chat, look under "Forums" and press "Topics" You can post in Random Chat anywhere on the site now by using the "New Post" tab at the bottom of the screen.

Hi Christie, in the same area of the menu under Forums is Stories. I click on that and it takes me to 1 story. I can't find the Storytime Forum. Also Videos takes me to 1 video, the one you just posted.

@ Baby Butch
  Under "Forums" > "Stories" it brings you to a link to Story Time. It just shows one forum since there is only one forum about stories.

Also under "Latest Posts" > "Videos" it only shows videos posted with the uploader. I'll see if I can find a way to add videos also from the forum.

  Hi DiaperBayb! You can use the left side bar to browse the site. New arrangements take some time to get used to. If there is something in particular you want to know how to find just let me know!

Baby Butch let me know forums, and post lists need to let you go to a certain page rather than showing just the latest posts, and I'm on the way to coding that right now.

 Thanks Christie Luv for all your hard work on SK!   I am getting use to the upgrade  and the new "walls" are staring to grow on me.

This may be the speed issue you were referring to in other posts, but thought I would add my experience.  On any of the main pages (sissykiss.com; sissykiss.com/stories; sissykiss.com/forum-topics/ etc...) I get the left menu bar, bottom tabs, and header image immediately but it takes between 20-30 seconds for the content to appear after the page load  completes (even if I just refresh the page).   If I click on a "This Post's Page" link that page loads almost instantly.    I tested it in Firefox, Chrome, and "Web" (the built-in browser of Mageia) and get the same thing in each.  I just tried it on another computer (in a Firefox private window) and it took even longer.
I have been playing with it using the Firefox dev tools, and it looks like every time I do a page reload it downloads about 34Meg of data.   If you need me to post more details or help with troubleshooting  just let me know :)

  Hi Brianna! Thank you so much for letting me know! I've optimized to page a lot sense you made this post, maybe it loads faster for you now, but I also have plans to make it even faster later when I get the chance.
