Alt-text: "Bootlicking is especially hard with Tyr'Enn - they don't really do boots."
Ok, here's the deal everyone ... I had to do some updates, and the theme and plugin that I used before to manage and display the comics (ComicPress / Comic Easel) hasn't had an update in a few years and didn't really survive the journey. So I had to migrate to a new theme and plugin along with the other stuff.
Now the most important part is that the comics are still there and all reachable ... and I can still put up a new one every week. We should be fine on that front :)
The old comments should also be there ... and the ability for you to write new ones (I know I don't get too many of these, but I still like to give you the opportunity). The chapter associations are also still there ... the location and character tags I had to recreate.
The static pages, mainly the cast page with is subpages, is also still there. The link on the subpages to "view all comic appearances" for a character does not currently work, however (see below)
There are still a bunch of more things that are currently not working, which I will try to work on as I have time, in no particular order:
- The design of the theme is a very different one, obviously. I won't try to make it look exactly as before (in fact I don't think I need to), but maybe I will tweak it a bit more and see what can be done with this new theme.
- All the transcripts and the hovertexts of all the comic pages up until now are not displayed anymore :( ... they are still there in the data, but I have to figure out what to do with them (as I don't want to become a full Wordpress developer for this ... )
- Some convenience features that I had before, like a chapter select or the ability to visit all pages that a particular character appears on are also currently gone. I will see how I can reimplement them with my new toolbox
- ... I don't really like how on the homepage the comment box gets displayed above the blog text instead of below ...
I won't promise when I can get what to work again, though ... I hope you understand.
And if any of you find something else that isn't working as before (or you actually find a comic page that I missed or something), please feel free to tell me via the comments, by writing an email or by contacting me over my DA page.
Thank you all, and I hope you'll continue to enjoy this comic as I will continue to enjoy making it <3
Updated on 2023-09-28: My manual readding of the alt-texts has now finally arrived at those comics whose alt-texts were never visible before. I did write one for each comic after this one, still ... hoping they might at some point have a chance to appear again!
