Shout Out To Kyle And Carson: What Is Happening With SiteContent? So Many Errors!

Last Update: May 08, 2019

Over the last month or two, I've seen a lot of members questioning whether SiteContent is worth using anymore.

The above image is from a comment in response to a recent blog by PaulREvans which you can read here:

I Will Not Be Using SiteContent


Further snippets of members feedback are:

My Response To The Above Question

You Can See My Full Blog On It Here:

Images Not Rendering Amended Sizes From SiteContent Glitch - PLEASE HELP?

There are a whole lot more questions raising doubts about the functionality SiteContent and that it is making more work than less work.

My concerns are:

1/ Are Kyle and Carson aware of the problems? I know I emailed Kyle with my blog, awaiting response.

2/ Is there an update happening soon with SiteContent and we need to be patient?

3/ If 2/ is not in the pipeline, are there steps been taken to attend to these issues that have been raised?

4/ There is a great number of the members who would dearly like to use SiteContent, however, it isn't helping at the moment, it's hindering, so is there a feedback from Kyle and Carson that these members WILL be able to use SiteContent again in the near future as issues are being attended to?

We all look forward to your soonest response.

Regards

Edu

Hi Edu,

With all posts about the WA system we look into each individual case very closely and we'll look into these as well. We are already looking into the Auto-save post, and we'll also look into the image sizing post to see what the specifics are for that.

Kyle and investigate all blogs, questions, or comments related to the system, so you can rest assured we're all over these cases to determine what the cause and if updates are required to the platform.

I suspected as much but great to have the confirmation from you.

The only reason I use Site Content is that it lets me know when my post has been indexed
All the problems you listed have bothered me so much, these days, I just type my post on MS Word, copy & paste it into SIte Content, publish it and apply all changes on Word Press (heading tags, images hyperlinks, spacing, and many other things)
That's how I've been doing it ever since I joined WA.

Its just harder and not efficient when editing your posts with Site Content.
I hope changes can be made in the future to address those issues

I'm sure Kyle and Carson will heed the issues and amend them in time.

Hi Edu,
I have used Site Content ever since it came out. But I am questioning the usefulness of it, the spell checker has to be redone once in WP, lots of photos and images in Site Content but they don't show up the same in WP, too big or too small.

Most of these things are relatively minor but gets to be time-consuming in correcting fonts and imaging errors.

I will wait until an update (hopefully) occurs.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us Bill.

I find the same issues you have and that's the reason I raised the question.

For all of us to continue using SiteContent, the feedback needs to be given, and so I'm hoping this will help them iron out the problems that need to be corrected.

Thanks once again for taking the time to comment.

I've not all that many problems with SiteContent, but perhaps that's because I use it ever since it was launched. I am about to put up tutorials for SiteContent once more I think. Just to make it easier-to-understand for new members.

All the same, the image problems are a known problem. The reason the images are not changeable within media-manager is because they are being uploaded in a general image server as far as I could see. They aren't even hosted on your site, while the images from media-library are.

That much I did gather about them not even being on WP Media Library.
So my question is, what is the solution?
My suggestion for a solution was to change the programming so it DOES load to WP Media Library.....

oh I am quite sure they could program it to be uploaded in our media library. Not sure why they chose the difficult way. Maybe to be able to compress it directly the right way.

I wish you to arrange that.

Perhaps it makes a difference which internet browser you are running. Often Chrome will give me fits and I start using Firefox.

I myself prefer Firefox as I've found glitches with Chrome too. However, there are many who really believe that Firefox has seen better days. I beg to differ :-)

I use SiteContent all the time and upload all of my images there as well before publishing. In fact, I just published a post a couple of days ago that had a lot of images and didn't experience any problems.

Strange that I have never had an problems and it works quite well and I am very satisfied maybe mainly because I have installed only one or two plugins don’t know

But I am very satisfied with sitecontent

Good to hear your experience of SiteContent has been positive.

I never put images in my post in site content. I wait until it's on WP and then I put in images. They are then just the way I chose when I put them in there.

They are not getting the full benefit of SiteContent image compression then, which uses state of the art technology to compress the images on your website.

This will lead to faster web page load speeds, and better rankings in search engines. Just a FYI.

I use the Smush plugin. What do you think of it?

Hi Kyle, I find site content is good but I know it can be better. A lot of the time if I add images at the site content level they end up in areas not intended to be. For me I use content because in most cases it gets my post indexed faster.
Published an article on Meditation 2 days ago almost 3 now and it has still not been indexed.
I like it for it spelling and grammar but it lacks the options you find in WP.
Not very fond of it really, but I still have a lot to learn.

Thank you for letting us know that Kyle, it makes sense then to utilize SiteContent for the compression of images then.

In regards to H1/H2/H3 - When editing in SiteContent, H (Heading) tags are defined to be a certain size. When you publish on your website, the style of those H1/H2/H3 tags could be wildly different, and that's exactly as it should be. Your Website is where style is defined and all themes have the ability to have different styles.

Text, Headings, Images, lists, all content on your own website could look slightly different when it's published due to your theme's own styles - that's expected.

This is interesting. It makes perfect sense, each Theme will have an effect on the content published there. Site content is a great medium for us to get our information out there, but the Theme has the final say.
