Just curious why the comments allow a "title" but the title (either creator or reader) does not show up on the comic page? It shows up on the list of recent comments on the stats page. Why have a title if it's not visible to anyone but the creator? Or do I have a setting clicked off/on?

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]&notitle



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

find:

[v:l.replylink]


replace:

[v:l.replylink]&notitle




find:

[v:l.editlink]


replace:

[v:l.editlink]&notitle

Thanks, Kyo! I knew it had to be something. :)

Merged Doublepost:

I made the edits, but the previous titles don't show, and a test (now deleted) didn't have the title show up either. Sorry... any advice? And yes, I did download a copy of the layout before I made the changes.

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

Heh. I thought writing "notitle" didn't seem quite right. :) I re-uploaded the previous code.

Yes, I'd like to be able to have the titles show. Not sure how to say where they should go. I had imagined them being in the bar where the username shows or in the comment text field, just over it, perhaps in bold. Doesn't have to be bold, of course. Just thinking of differentiation (and that would be easy to do I'd guess if desired). Nothing fancy if it's difficult. [In the bar would be 'fancy']. Just so that it shows and people don't wonder why the comic asks for a title when none appears (as it stands). So yes, instructions please. :)
THANKS.

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:

            <div class="commentdata">


replace:


            <div class="commentdata">
               [c:l.commenttitle]
                 <div class="commenttitle">
                   [v:l.commenttitle]
                 </div>
               [/]


then in your CSS, add at the bottom:

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

And I finally got around to making the change. Looks great, and previous page titles appear too. :)
Thanks again, Kyo!
