• Welcome to the new Your Jockstraps

    Your Jockstraps is now a full-featured website featuring discussion forums, galleries, profiles, search capabilities and a robust private message system to converse with other members. Unlike the old website, with this one, YOU control your content.

    While you are more than welcome to enjoy the site as a guest, the real fun begins when you register and become a member. And just in case you're wondering, Your Jockstraps is and always will be 100% free.

    The website may appear daunting but trust me, once you get used to it, it will feel like home in no-time. As a start, be sure to read my post in the News and Announcements Forum . There's lots of help available in the FAQ Pages and if you still can't figure something out, then post a question in the Questions, Help and Support Forum and I'll do my best to help you.

    When you do join, don't forget to spend some time setting up your Profile, it's your home. Upload a profile photo and be sure to fill in some of the Account Details as what you fill in will appear on your Profile Page under the About tab.

A new website like this comes with a steep learning curve. If you have questions about how to use the many features of this website, then first checkout the FAQ section (link on main menu) to see if the answer is there. If it's not, then please feel free to ask me here in the Questions, Help and Support forum.

To be honest, there's still things I'm learning about. What I have found is that there are often multiple ways to access a page, access a feature or accomplish anything you want to do (like comment on photos).

My advice: don't be afraid to play around with the site, trying posting photos in the gallery and post in the forums, if you make a mistake, you can always fix or delete it and try again. And if can't figure something out, just ask here in this forum. I'm here to help.

Enjoy the site,

John (aka Jockstrapguy)

Hallo John..........how can I add a bit to my profile,please?

There's a bunch of stuff you can fill in from your Preferences Page under the Account Details section. Things like, Favorite Jockstrap brands, Sexual Orientation, Top/Bottom/Versatile, Hobbies, Favorite Movies and more. When you fill those things out, they'll appear on your Profile Page under the About Tab.

You can also create a "Signature" for yourself. That will appear at the bottom of any post or comment you make and also appear in the About section of your Profile Page.

There's an detailed FAQ entry on how to set up your profile, which is here

Is that what you were asking?

Can guests see all the posts or is it restricted to members?

It's a bit complicated. What you post in the discussion forums will be visible to guests.

Photos you post to the Gallery Style Categories and Gallery Photo Challenges are visible to guests

When you create a Personal Album, you can set the privacy to be fully private in that only you will see it, set it to member only where only registered members can see it, or you can set it to be only visible to other members of your choosing.

You can also change some of your privacy settings in your Preferences page, I.E. you can make your profile only visible to registered members and guest won't see it. You can set your privacy setting from this page (just click the Privacy tab on the left):


I didn't write the software. I can tweak things and modify them a bit. I would hope for more control regarding privacy in an upcoming version. There's no way for the discussion forums to be private, but I at least would hope members could make photo posts to the Gallery page be private or members only.

Kind regards,

John

Thank you - I think you have picked up on my concerns and I appreciate your efforts. Hopefully there will be more options on future releases of the software as you indicate. In the meantime it is good to know what will be available to guests.

Thanks

No worries, removing you from this site has no connection with Jockstrap Central or our Mailing List, they are separate entities.

I'll remove you right away.

To anyone else:

There is no way to remove oneself from the site without contacting me - but doing so is easy. Just start a Conversation (private message) with me, use the Contact Us link at the bottom of any page or email me direct at john@yourjockstraps.com

Deleting an account is permanent and can't be reversed - this is the main reason for having it done through me. I run another site like this and I can't tell you how many guys have asked to have their accounts deleted only to come back a week later to tell me they changed their mind and want their account and all photos returned to the website. The only option is for them to sign back up and reupload their photos.

Is it possible to have a dark mode theme for the site? I imagine we’re all on it while in bed and something darker would be easier in the eyes. Just an ask, no biggie if not. Thank you again for the fantastic site!

Good idea. I'm mostly on the site in the day in my office. I'll work on it when I get some spare time. Hopefully this weekend.

I've started on the dark mode theme. It's no where near final. I'm basically modifying a free dark theme I found. The colors need a lot of tweaking but at least it's dark and will do until I can devote some serious time to it.

Just head to the bottom of the website and on the left, you see the default Your Jockstraps Theme. Click that, and you'll be able to choose the Shades of Grey theme.

It already looks pretty darn good! I like the dark shades rather than pure black. Great job!!

The Greys have no tie in to the greens of the header and logo Just going to play around and add a green or blue tint yo the greys. Also want to improve the link and highlight colors.

How do I make an album?

The simple answer is: The same way you add a photo to the Gallery, except instead of choosing a Jockstrap Style or Photo Challenge, scroll all the way down and you'll see the option Create Personal Album. Once you've created a Personal Album, an Albums tab will appear under your profile page.

If you ever want to add photos to an existing Personal Album, the easiest way is to go to your profile page, click on the Albums tag, click on the album you want to add photo to then click the Add Media button and upload more photos to it.

All this is explained in the FAQ/Help pages. The FAQ pages are a link from the main menu, there's a wealth of knowledge there. There's a whole section on Adding Photos and Uploading Content.

how do I delete a conversation?

There's two ways to do so. In an actual Conversation window, there's a Leave Conversation button at the top right hand side of the conversation window you can click to leave the Conversation.

If you want to delete multiple Conversations, you have to click the envelope icon in the upper main menu of any page on Your Jockstraps then click the Show All link in the bottom left of the pop up window. That will list all your conversations with a checkbox on the right of each one. Check the ones you want to delete and a blue bar will appear at the bottom of your screen. Choose Leave Conversation and a popup window will appear with two options:

  1. Accept Future Messages: This will delete the message from your view but if the other member in the Conversation replies then the Conversation will reappear.
  2. Ignore Future Messages: This will delete the message - even if the other member replies to the Conversation.
Here's a few screencaps with the highlighted buttons and links you're looking for. The screencaps are from a desktop but they work similarly in a mobile phone or tablet.

Leave Conversation button from a single Conversation page:

Show all Conversations:

Select multiple conversations with action bar at bottom of screen:
