It took awhile, but the boutique creator is finally finished! After months of work, it is to the point of being released. With the new boutique creator you can access tons of furniture and items to decorate a boutique. You can move, re-size, and even choose colors for many new materials. As well you can add all your own fashions/furniture and create rich stylish text! Soon to come will be our packs that offer more exclusive content with different themes and society store items. Above is just one example of the many boutiques that can be created with the new boutique creator.
I've added the new boutique creator to the Studio Central page, you can click the keys to access it. I've also added a Fullscreen link at the bottom for easier use on different screen sizes, if you have trouble I recommend zooming out a little bit.

Loading: Until I can add a loading feature, please wait until the page has fully loaded before using the boutique creator, since some of the images may not appear otherwise. A quick way to tell everything is loaded is if you click the "Add Text" button on the menu and wait for the # hex color areas to change from white to color.

Important: Right now I have one main coding issue that I'm in the process of working out, but would delay the creator from being released for about a month. So instead of making you all wait, I've decided to add some work arounds for the time being. Until fixed, please follow these steps to save your boutique depending on the browser you use. It is recommended that you test this before using the boutique creator the first time.

Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox: You can use all the features including the furniture tabs. Once you are done, you can right click on the boutique to save it.

Internet Explorer, Safari, and Opera: For the time being, you can't use the images from the furniture tabs only, but you can upload all your own pictures/furniture and use the other features. Once you are finished, you can click the "Save" button on the main menu. For those of you who can't use the furniture tabs, here is the download:
Boutique Content    

If any of you experience other issues please let me know right away since I'm still in the process of adding new features and working on errors. For more help and step by step on how it works, see the "Help" button on the boutique creator main menu.
Hope you all enjoy the new Boutique Creator everyone!

I"m using Chrome, I see the images fine except some of the wallpaper ones aren't showing like 9 of them, but all the other images are fine. What's not working is that when I click and drag what I want it doesn't show up I did follow the instructions but i'm not getting anything to show up in that big white box.

Hmm well the best i can think is maybe it wasn't fully loaded. Maybe try going to fullscreen itll take you to a new tab and then close the other one. After that just wait till the page has finished loading and try the trick above about waiting till the colors in the text options load. After that they should show up, if you have an issue after that could you also try adding your own picture and see if that works. Let me know after that if its still not working

I ended up setting it to a new tab automatically because I noticed it sometimes doesn't seem to want to fully load in the studio page, then they don't want to work...

Yeah, I have Mozilla and I cannot do anything. All but like 5 of the wallpapers are loading, but I cannot one) change the color of the furniture, two) click or drag any furniture/wallpapers to the screen, three) add my own pictures. I know that it's new so there are bugs and all. Just letting you know the problems that I had, and it's not just them.

Agh alright everything still appears fine for me and I tested all the browsers but Ill look into trying it on a different computer, possibly may have to reupload the images if thats what might be causing stuff to not work. Im gonna work on it tonight and then if I cant get the images to work right Ill see about setting it a little differently for the time being.

Okay so I changed the code around a bit, but the furniture tab images may or may not work so please let me know if things are better now? All the other features like uploading pics should at least work.

Hmm well do you have javascript and popups enabled? I'm really stumped because I set it so that the uploading and stuff should work whether the other images load or not.

Yes I did:) It's still not working, but now I can add my own images just can't use the btq creator items:( But at least it's letting me do something now before I couldn't do anything at all.

Alright I figured that may happen, I have to re-upload the images once I figure out how to make my own server anyways so maybe then they'll all work for you. It may take me some time but after that it'll also fix the saving feature for everyone as well. For now I guess you'll have to download the boutique content I linked above and on the boutique creator menu, sorry about that.

I did have similar problems earlier. But it is working fine now. I do have a problem with the saving part. When I click save, nothing happens. Other than that, it works and looks great. Thanks. :)

Yeah the save button doesn't work if you use pictures from the furniture tab so if you aren't using chrome or firefox then you have to just upload the ones you want yourself. If you have chrome or mozilla firefox you should be able to right click the boutique and theres a save image as option (check before you make a boutique to make sure)

I made a boutique creator tutorial that goes through the process of making a boutique. Hopefully it'll help everyone with getting started using it and also be able to see how everything is supposed to function. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xcq-732Sp-s
