Add your own posts – FINALLY

I think I have fixed it – the ability for anybody to add their own post – you can even add as many photos as you want in one easy way

 

S0 – please test this out and see what you think.

After you log in – there is a bar at the top left of the internet window showing your log in name – and there is also a PLUS sign with NEW alongside it.

This will allow you to create a blog entry just like this – but it gives you upload facility for images etc. You will post things and it will associate your avatar and your name to the post, so people can click on your profile to find out more.

So I encourage anybody who wants to, have a play with this and start posting. It will make the site richer in content and better for everybody!

It may all look scary but a few minutes playing around should settle any nerves and let you add posts, format them, insert photos etc – so please – especially those who are quite active on the site – have a good play and see what happens.

Goodbye and thanks

Don’t worry – the site is not closing nor am I walking away from running it.

Recently I sold my Fetters leather straitjacket. Back in September 2018 I got a nice work bonus so used it to buy a new leather lined, locking leather straitjacket. The sad part is that even though I received the jacket before 2018 finished, it is yet to have a single strap fastened ! Such is life.

But my old jacket has found a new home and I hope it gives that person the countless hours of fun I enjoyed from it. Looking back I think the jacket is around twelve to fourteen years old, but you would never know it. After a clean it looked as good now as it did when I first bought it, making me feel better about the amount of money it cost.

 

New setup coming soon

I appreciate that so many people still visit this site and use it – despite the fact that the site is SOOOOOO SLLLLOOOOOWWWWWW.

You get what you pay for in life and the server site runs on is cheap.

I am currently testing a new server for a new website and it’s looking promising – so I hope to be able to move Jacketbound to this new server at some point in the next few months. You should see quite an improvement in speed. Also by testing the other website out I am playing with new plugins and add ons for the system that would bring quite a lot more to the end user. Hopefully this all means this site can move up to the next level for all concerned.

Stay tuned!

Users

We have quite a few users now on this website yet it is the usual suspects who contribute some great content to the site. There may be quite a few users on the site who just do nothing other than sign up – so over the coming months I will be deleting any members who have not been on the site for the last six months.

After that I will make a list of those users who regularly visit the site yet do not contribute and ask them why this is.

Hopefully we can make this site a bit better for all concerned.

Fingers crossed 2019 may be a more productive year for Jacketbound community.

Thanks

Time to sell

With a work bonus in hand I decided to buy a couple of items on my ‘wish list’ from Fetters.

So first up is a leather lined, leather sleepsack with locking straps. Always wanted one of those.

Next up is a new armsdown leather lined leather straitjacket, with locking straps as my love of wine has made my previous jacket a bit snug.

So – it’s time to sell my old jacket. It has done me very well. I think it’s around 10 years old and still looks as good now as the first day I bought it. So stay tuned for some better pictures of the gear to sell and the new gear in action. Along with some measurements and a rough price, in case anybody is interested in buying my old jacket off me.

Tumblr

As Tumblr has decided to update it’s policy about adult content I am amongst lots of people who are leaving Tumblr behind.

It’s a shame but seems to sum up the Internet these days.

However, I have a few posts I would like to bring into this website so I have installed a Tumblr importer. All my posts will now find their way to this website along with text / pictures etc.

If any members want to do the same – you may need my help in doing this – so get in touch – and I will see if we can get as many users Tumblr posts imported as possible before they all get deleted.

Members Photos

For all those who are not aware, every time you post a photograph to your profile – it gets added to the “Site Wide Activity” page – so you can see there lots of new images from a few members in particular.

I would love to make this website more active, but that needs users to take part in the website and post images / thoughts – add comments – take part in the forum etc. This site is meant to be for everybody to use as they want to – so please dive in. The more activity we see, the more enthusiastic users are to add more of their own content.

So lets get this site working properly and see where it goes. Or does nobody care about this site enough to do so?
