Thanks for adding these options, Kyo! I do use the blog feature, but I feel like people don't read them because they can’t see if they’ve been updated unless they click the “news” button.

I'm clueless when it comes to implementing this stuff, though. I don't know very much about code at all. I'm using a modded version of the Once I Was a King layout and I have no idea what I'm doing. (I’m taking a web design course this January so I can stop feeling like an idiot about this stuff HNNNNNNGH)

Here's what I have for the blog archive page:



And the blog display:



I'm also wondering if it's possible to have a thumbnail link to the newest comic page in the overview landing. Maybe a banner?

tell ya what, why don't you just invite me as an author (make sure to check the edit layout permissions box) and I'll take a look

Well, you can size down the image using HTML or you can manually upload a thumbnail via extra file upload, but we do not currently generate thumbnails for the comic pages

On once I was a king, I've also updated the overview page to actually show arrow navigation etc. now, like on the comic page, just with the blogs instead of the comments beneath them (and with a link that takes you to the comments for the latest comic). I can also give you those updates if you want to try em out

Kyo:I apologize for deceiving you, I do not care about what your favorite color is at all


Then I won't tell you. Didn't read any further.

Darn you! I like to tout that my favorite color is yellow (have you seen the page for Almighty Protectors?). It's a unique aspect about me, since it seems anybody else I come across can't stand it. But it's so bright and cheery...

Hello! Question about the blog!

Are there variables or conditions related to the first or last blog entries?

Similar to how
[c:isfirstcomic]
is the condition that the comic is the first comic,

or
[v:latestcomicimage]
identifies the URL of the image for the latest comic page.

Thanks in advance for your answer. :-)

on the blog display template, you can use [c:!prevbloglink] ... [/] to see if it's the first blog being displayed (the only one that does not have a link to a previous blog - maybe I should add a second condition with a more obvious name though)

similarly you can test with [c:!nextbloglink] ... [/] to see if you're displaying the latest blog.


on the overview, the latest blogs are actually inside a loop, so you can display more than one of the latest blogs. If you want to display only one, the first thing you need to do is head into your webcomic settings and change Number of blog posts shown on "Comic overview" to 1

then you can use the [l:latestblogs] ... [/] loop with all the usual loop variables for blogs, so basically your regular variables just with the l. at the start of their name

I figured those out after I posted the question, so they seem obvious enough. ;-)

Thank you for your reply, and for all your hard work! :-)

I just came back from a hiatus and I'm really lost on where to shove all of this new code. It doesn't seem to be working as I hoped it would so I restored my previous layout... Kyo, still offering assistance with implementing this?
