JPEGs should still look fine so long as people know how to save 'em!

What are the types of files that tend to use up the most bandwidth/be hugest? Or, around what filesize? I'm thinking of toning some of my sites back as soon as I stop being lazy~

FF seems to be less horrible since I added 3.1 beta 3 to my PC! But I also haven't tried to run AIM, Photoshop, and Sai simultaneously with it yet, either.
A nice and easily modded webcomic site management thing is WebComic + InkBlot! I will recommend this to everyone. You don't really need to know much about HTML to use it.

Of course you still need to be slightly familiar with CSS in order to mod these things, and there are a bunch that Google happens to have tracked!

Oh yeah, that reminds me, I'm looking into obtaining a CSS reset stylesheet or two. It'd probably help sometimes. :D I'm getting used to how different browsers handle things more now. (Today I found out Sunrise and Camino? Not that great.)

Helloooo Kylo! I have never played Bomberman for some reason. I probably should, huh?

If you're working with a whole bunch of people, it'd probably save you some time to do things that way, yeah. I'll assume it's something like people's current treatment of the basic default ComicPress layout - barely anyone modifies it, and those who do barely do it notably structured differently from the default. Few take it as far as they could, but they don't have to, because it's already basically professionally structured, nice, and organized for them. You could do crazy creative stuff if you want, but you hardly have to.

Someone with whom I work occasionally has a few sites designed like that, and I've noticed this about big sites as well... designed via CMS or something similar, there's little variation or advancement in structure from site to site, so all that changes are a set of very simple graphics, hehe. It's a good system.

/end web layout nerding! XD

When I tried the iPhone after it came out, I kept mashing the wrong "keys".

Took me like 5 minutes to type "" and then all my sites looked horrible to boot!

Ohh I should mention this to a friend of mine.

Dunno if she uses Wacom, but she keeps having to reinstall her tablet driver on Ubuntu over and over and sometimes it just doesn't work.

You have plenty of chances, Pedes!

...I say that, and yet not a one of my friends from college got a design job or anything near what they expected after graduation. D:

You're saying you shouldn't sketch out the visual structure of your highly visual website first and just jump into html first?

The ways she put it was a bit off from my teaching and practices, but you should definitely sketch out your website first, and it sounded kind of like she meant that. Sketching things out, whether you're starting with the basic blocks/skeleton or your fully fleshed-out concept, is always a pretty good thing to do first, especially for people who are already visual (read: make comics). Making it work efficiently and effectively in code is most important afterward. Of course you should keep in mind when laying out and designing (which can happen both at once, mind) that your website should function as a website no matter how pretty it is, and she does mention this repeatedly elsewhere in the blog.

Someone like me, who is just about as comfortable with designing sites as she is with drawing, can do these things pretty much simultaneously, but the importance of laying things out visually lingers with me. ;)

Hey JM! Something sort of similar happened to me recently. Kind of. But it's a little different still. *vague* :D

I'm also happy because I finally unscrewed some of my CSS. Then I made new CSS and screwed  something else up, but luckily this time it's not something that impairs functionality. *nods*
Web Design / Re: Cleaning up PHP $_GET URLs

Fah realz necrobumping this thread.

I'm wondering if this stuff can also apply to redoing the urls for my news scripts. Right now they look like this:

Yeah D: No idea what I'd redo it to but something much shorter and simpler. And, as usual, my brain is fried.

It's bad enough that the subdirectories also appear after I've used mod rewrite to create those subdomains, but it's because of how the news script is set up (I'm using one installation on three sites).

I'm thinking of coding, too. All those web developer jobs... I really wouldn't want to return to college just to do that, though. x_x (Even though... I think there's a DeVry 5 minutes from me, now? lol...)

Gallery probably couldn't do my comic archives the way I'd want them (and is a bit too much for my purposes anyway... took five minutes to unzip when I downloaded it for a look for someone else), but I finally installed Wordpress/WebComic+Inkblot for my archives. All is well!

I manipulated Single File Gallery to someone else's will, but I have the feeling I might go nuts trying to config it for a comic, lol.

March 04, 2009, 01:11:12 PM Read this! Things good for any webcomicer to know.

And make sure your archive is easily navigable!

Y'know, I'd like to be able to write simple games. Pretty soon I'm gonna start messing with some game templates I downloaded for Flash. %D

I need to see Slumdog Millionaire... 'cause it won stuff.

Also, last night I ate the most awesome pizza. What's great is that I still have half of it left, too.
