the banner with the dot above it is at the bottom of the page, matt

in any case, matt is right, you want to remove both the "<li>" and the "</li>" in that code, and the dot should go away.

e: Just saw that there are also some other slight mistakes, here's the correct code:

&lt;div&gt;<br />
    &lt;a href=&quot;http://fageaunardsfineartes.thecomicseries.com/comics/first&quot;&gt;<br />
        &lt;img src=&quot;https://comicfury.com/comicbans/157/40883_383510024.png&quot; /&gt;<br />
    &lt;/a&gt;<br />
&lt;/div&gt;

MJThornton:I've even had to fix like two or three plotholes and I'm only twenty pages in! I don't know what to do either because comic fury doesn't seem to let me change original files to ones who's dialogue I updated without putting everything out of order by submitting a new page.


Sorry, I know the edit comics section is a bit of a mess. I'm actually working on making it easier to use right now.

Anyway, this is possible though. In your webcomic management, go to "edit/delete comic pages", select the checkbox next to the comics you want to edit (if you're planning to upload new files, i wouldn't suggest selecting more than a few at once - also something that will be fixed in the aforementioned rework)

then scroll to the bottom, and hit the edit button. it'll present you with a form for each page that also lets you upload a new comic image

e: by the way, your comics are sorted by release date, so if you want to add a strip inbetween older ones, just set the release date accordingly

Xenocartographer:but it does support modulus for some reason :)


the original reason is actually being able to do stuff every xth iteration in template loops

yes, google analytics should give you this information, and if you want to really go in-depth with your stats, I definitely recommend installing it, our visitor tracker is meant to be more of a fairly basic tool giving you a good overview of what's happening, it's not meant to be a replacement for a proper analytics tool like google

yeah I agree, I really have trouble coming up with stuff. You can only say the generic "I like it" so many times, before you get sick of hearing yourself say it, too

ClickMe2WinFREE-iPod:So with the script thing, the transcript would contain the code (presumably in <script> tags) and I'd set it to render directly into the page as html?


yeah exactly, just put any html you want in the transcript, either just the script directly or just a tag to pull it in from an extra file.

you could of course also just use an author comment with HTML enabled, but I think the transcript is the current nicest option, maintenance wise


Seriously, it's so cool that we can even do stuff like this in the first place, Comic Fury is a great site.


thanks! I always enjoy seeing what people manage to make their sites do

alright, finally got around to working on this, sorry it took a few days.

(do this twice, once for comments, once for author notes:)


(on the comic page section) find:

<br />
            &lt;div class=&quot;commentdata&quot;&gt;


replace:


<br />
            &lt;div class=&quot;commentdata&quot;&gt;<br />
               [c:l.commenttitle]<br />
                 &lt;div class=&quot;commenttitle&quot;&gt;<br />
                   [v:l.commenttitle]<br />
                 &lt;/div&gt;<br />
               [/]


then in your CSS, add at the bottom:

.commenttitle {<br />
    font-size:1.2em;<br />
    font-weight:bold;<br />
    margin-bottom:6px;<br />
}

ClickMe2WinFREE-iPod:(My current idea is to make a second comic to act as a hidden "copy", work on its layout with the on-site editor, and simply upload its cflxml to the main comic once everything's completed. That seems like the best approach to me, but idk if there's something more straightforward that I'm missing.)


yeah, that's the best approach. when you link any files in the layout, make sure they don't include a domain at all (but rather start with a / to be relative to the domain root), and then copy over files along with the cflxml


Second: is there a way to load specific scripts only on certain pages of a comic? I know that all individual pages of the comic are derived from the same 'Comic Page' layout file, but if (for instance) I wanted to run an HTML5 canvas script on page 10 of my comic and nowhere else on the site, is there a way to set that up?


yes, there are multiple ways. I do plan on making just posting straight up html "officially facilitated", but for now, it involves layout hacks.

So first of all, this code:
[f:rawhtml|v:transcript]


will output the transcript, as raw HTML (you can do this for any variable by swapping out the bit that says "transcript") - if you don't use transcripts on your comics at all, it's as simple as placing that code somewhere on your page. If you don't want it to show the comic image you uploaded alongside it, you can also do something like replacing
[v:comicimage]

with something like this:
[c:!transcript]<br />
    [v:comicimage]<br />
[/]<br />
[f:rawhtml|v:transcript]


which will show the comic image, unless a transcript exists, in which case it will show that.

All of this, since it's using the transcript in ways it wasn't intended, will make the search functionality on your comic a bit erratic though.

If you do use the transcript feature for what it was originally intended, or don't want to get your search messed up, you can also use comparative conditions to achieve the same thing, by probing the current page number, but this means that each time you want to do a new HTML based update, you have to jury rig it into your layout all over again.

[c:comicnumber=10]<br />
    your custom code here<br />
[/]<br />
[v:comicimage]


And this is more tangential, but would storing this info and other related data in a JSON file and having the layout and script both reference it be desirable somehow? I haven't really learned about data exchange formats yet, but it seems like the kind of thing that they'd be used for.)


depends on what you're trying to do entirely


Third: I noticed in some old documentation that the ability to use jQuery in a comic site is provided by default, and the src path is listed as "/files/static/jquery-1.3.2.min.js". If the feature is still available, is that the correct path, or is there an updated version? I'm specifically interested in embedding YouTube videos into a page and being able to submit them as an update, so if this can be done feasibly without jQuery (or even just with pure JS) this one isn't really important.


I would not recommend using this anymore. I kind of realized that this was ultimately a pointless effort, since people can just upload the extra files they need anyway. The links still work for backwards compatibility, but the files will never receive any more updates.

Last question, and it's kind of random: if I'm using a unique font on my site, what's the difference between loading it through a link to Google Fonts and storing the ttf files on Comic Fury and loading them from there, in terms of page size and performance?


well, it really depends. Since the comicfury servers are being connected to anyway, one could argue that it might make sense to keep the number of different servers (any one of which may be slow for any given user, depending on how the connection is routed) down, but then again, it's google. So basically, no idea.

I also think google fonts may do some optimization magic (hence you mentioning page size?), I haven't looked into all that

Don't worry, I'm very certain it's not an attack. It's just very aggressive ads added by the comic author triggering the malware filter. The page you linked is talking about it appearing without anyone adding it. If that happens to you, or on the main comicfury site, something's up, but if it's just on some webcomic, it can just be a case of the author adding it. (although if it's triggering your malware filter you should obviously always report it, ads like that just shouldn't be on CF comics)

This comic has actually been made aware to me before because of aggressive ads (though not triggering the malware filter, just popups) - so I'm pretty sure this is just the author, because they would have been spoken to about it.

However, if the ads are triggering malware filters, that definitely crosses the line of what's allowed. I'll remove them and let the author know (and double check they added it themselves just to make 100% sure)

Thanks for the report!

oh! this is the code to hide the title option on the comment form, not to actually put comment titles on your page. Adding them would be dependent on your layout, but would involve adding "[v:l.commenttitle]" to the comment and author note loop. I can give you more specific instructions if you want to do this, but it depends on what you want it to look like/where you want the title to go

it does show up, depending on your layout. However, you can also disable the title showing up in the comment form by adding "&notitle" to the end of the URL. Looks like the default layout yours is based on doesn't do this, when it should. I'll fix that for the default layout(s).

For your own, you can fix it by going to the comic page section, finding:

[v:commentlink]


and replacing it with

[v:commentlink]&amp;notitle



and if you want to do the same for edit and reply links, also:

find:

[v:l.replylink]


replace:

[v:l.replylink]&amp;notitle




find:

[v:l.editlink]


replace:

[v:l.editlink]&amp;notitle

you select the check mark next to the pages you want to change the date on, and then hit the edit button at the bottom. The edit page is a bit confusing, it's next in line for a bit of a rework

e: also, welcome to the site! your opening post was very nice

yeah, i don't really think being a nazi is one of those "let's just not talk about it" type of situations

e: lest i state the obvious, but nazis are really like legitimately actually genuinely really bad. like wanting to advance the ultimate goal of a race based genocide bad. it's not something you just overlook, because reasons

definitely let me know if it keeps happening on the mass upload specifically. it shouldn't really be doing much of anything, certainly not anything that would make your browser lag (more than normal)

if you've ever used the mass upload page, you might have noticed that it's a bit of a pain in the ass to actually use. Well, that's why I rewrote it, to use a fancy upload queue and you know, just in general not be so crappy. This also means you can now fill in more forms at once, I limited it to 30 for now, but I might raise that number once I gain some confidence in my little widget.

I did my best to test it thoroughly, but if you have any problems or see something that just seems a little bit off but you're not 100% sure if it's a bug, post it here!

if you want to try it out but don't have 5 pre-drawn, ready-to-upload pages handy, you can also use it to just upload a single comic, to see how it basically works. Or y'know, just use a test webcomic site. Or don't bother at all and instead spend the time you saved reminiscing days gone by
