Well, I seem to have isolated the problem. Comics that were listed in categories other than only just “comics” were getting skipped when you tried to navigate forward and back. Not sure why this is, or why it suddenly happened, since it has been working okay up until recently (I think it may have something to do with the latest WordPress upgrade).
Anyway, got it figured out without having to migrate the entire site from one format to another. That’s probably something that is on the horizon since I’m never able to get ComicPress help, and most of my searches lead to other people not getting help. Yikes!
So.. Enjoy the comics! More coming soon!
***UPDATE*** I think this fixed the RSS, too. Not saying for sure, but it looks like all of the comics are displaying in the RSS right now, so that’s a good sign. I will be keeping my eyes on it.
Hey guys. I was going through the comic today and noticed that that navigation is all screwed up. If you either try and start at the beginning and hit next next next or start a the end and back back back, you’ll skip several comics – sometimes several months worth. I have no idea what’s causing this, and since ComicPress is no longer being developed, I probably won’t be finding much help. UGH. So in the mean time there are a couple options.
#1 – The Stir Fry Comics Facebook Page has all the comics. I post links for every update in the morning, and the actual comic image in the evening. All the comics are there.
#2 – You can also read Stir Fry Comics over at Tapastic.com – Actually you can read tons of comics there! All the comics are there as well.
#3 – The random button seems to be working just fine – but there is a bit of a continuity stream through the later comics that you might miss out on a bit, but hey, I already offered you two options to read in order!
AND YES, I am looking into getting this fixed. I will likely involve migrating everything from ComicPress to ComicEasel. Sounds like a smooth operation, but I have no idea how true that is (but they are made by the same guy, so… there’s hope). I’m looking at starting in on that closer to the weekend, as time allows. Depending on how well it goes you may encounter problems with the site over the next week or so ranging from “it looks all janky” to “it doesn’t work”. I apologize in advance, and hope ya’ll understand.
ALSO: Several of you have noted issues with the RSS. Sometimes the comic images show up in the feed, and sometimes they don’t. I had been looking into it, but have been running into the same issue of no current support for comic press, and not being able to find anyone with the same problem (and a solution). I’m hoping that migrating to another theme will resolve those issues as well. At least going forward.
I appreciate all of you patience with this! M.
Ever wonder what it’s like coming to my table at a convention?
Well, now you can keep wondering, but still be able to see all the fun stuff that I have available at the mattchee store! As my Twitter follower will tell you (several tweets probably contained “Ugh.. Still working on the store.”), I’ve been working hard over the last several days getting the store updated, sorted, and adding more products! YEP!
So I’m super excited to invite y’all to come check it out and see what I have available. You’ll find buttons, prints, comics, magnets, weird wooden wall plaque thingies that I made, and some other fun stuff (custom hand drawn buttons, anyone?).
Gotta throw it out there that if you dig what I’m doing, and you’re looking for a way to show support and help keep the comic going– shopping at my store is a rad way to do it. Most webcomics, mine included, are a labor of love, but it takes time, work, and money to keep it going, so every little bit helps.
I did do a shameless plug in the most current comic post (sorry if you’re seeing double here, the blog posts hang out longer than the comic posts do), and in there I put a coupon code. So here it is… If you enter STIRFRY4 at checkout, I will give you 25% OFF your purchase! The offer applies to your purchase total before any tax or shipping, good through March 31, 2014 at mattchee.storenvy.com!
What? You’re reading this blog post wwwwaaaaaaaaayyyyy after March 31, 2014 and you’re thinking “DUDE! I want a coupon code!” Well never fear my friend – if you join my mailing list (over there on your right), I try to get a little newsletter out every month or so with a new coupon code. I totally promise not to spam you! I hate that crap too, man!
Oh did I mention I like to throw little free things, and maybe even some doodles in with all the orders? Did I? I do that!
That’s it for this
shameless plug blog post. I’ll write at you some more later.
