don't worry about it, it's a recent-ish addition, so that's not really on you
also another thing i did just then: separated the "hide from navigation" and "page order" settings for website pages. previously, you would have to set the order number to 0 to hide the page, but that's not very intuitive or obvious unless you read the little text underneath that setting, so I turned it into a separate checkbox
Matt Comics:this new style looks very... modern, I guess. and somewhat easier to navigate. overall, I like it.
I only miss the small icons. you know, those pens, graphs, folders and other tools. I like icons.
I also think everything seems pushed towards the right side of the screen in some places. it doesn't look quite right.
I'm afraid I got carried away Image
edit: fixed a weird mistake
other than that, great job!
the reason is that I wanted the left column with all the labels not to shift in width, and the right column with all the textareas and stuff just goes all the way to the screen. obviously on 1080p, that's often not like necessary in terms of length. I might play around with giving text inputs a max-width, although in some places (anywhere where there's a textarea for e.g. the layout or extra pages, etc., really), it does make sense to have wide inputs, and then the small text inputs wouldn't be the same as the big textboxes anymore. not that that's the end of the world, just sorta walking you through my mental process here.
MK_Wizard:I will say this. I miss the pink box alert of having new comments. I like to see comments and be aware of them right away.
it only shows up on the main manage page now, but I can add it back to the header so it shows up on all pages, I think I just sort of forgot that a lot of people don't really navigate straight to the main "manage" page, especially now that all the links are in the side bar anyway
Jessie Blue:Actually, one suggestion, move 'Hide From ComicFury' to directly below 'Comic Visibility' with perhaps a note that setting Visibility to yes, and Hide from CF to yes will allow for sandboxing your site.
I'll do this, and I'll do you one better, I'll combine the two settings into one!
thanks for the positive feedback as well, everyone! I'm real glad that people more or less unanimously like it, I know that with changes like this, you always have to fight peoples routines a bit, so the status quo tends to start favorably, so this tells me that I made some real improvements (but to be fair, the old navigation was pretty terrible, so maybe that's a low bar to exceed)
it's just neutral grey, which is based on the same color as the "your webcomics" screen (and some other places like comic search), I didn't even really notice that forms have a slightly different grey than those screens until you said that, just then. Maybe I should have a look at unifying that a bit
MK_Wizard:Maybe I'm used to the text being smaller. Everything looks a bit... big.
that might be because all the inputs etc. stretch to the full width of the page (almost), whereas before some places like the comic upload form were quite narrow. I'd love for others to weight in on what they think as well, I don't mind making things a bit narrower if people like that better
TheHiddenElephant:Hmm, I quite like it. The only thing I've got, which is really quite petty, is putting the comments section above the subscribers section. Subscribers are nice, but when people comment on my webcomic, my statistics page is what i go to to take a look at the comments.
i just gave webcomic management a bit of a visual overhaul. It's based on some mock ups I did a very long time ago, I hope you like it. If you don't, there's an option in your account settings to get the old visuals back
Let me know what you think! And if you think something could be better, let me know as well! Especially if you hate it enough to want to switch back to the old awful system, but either way, I'd be happy to make further improvements, so feedback is much appreciated
