Just a quick note to update you on some recent minor releases to stripShow:
I was made aware of an issue which prevented AutoComic from being used on non-English sites. The tooltips that appear when you mouse over the navigation arrows couldn’t use non-Western characters. So that left out, oh, most of the world. Thanks to webdemin, a Greek stripShow user, I was able to modify the code to allow these tooltips to use UTF-8 characters.
Not a bug fix, but a minor new feature. Another user requested the ability to, in AutoComic, choose whether to place the navigation buttons above or below the comic (or both). I have added this feature.
Meanwhile, stripShow keeps motoring towards 3.0, which will mark a major change. WordPress 3′s support for custom post types means that comics no longer need to be blog posts in a special category, they can be their own unique thing. This is admittedly an obvious idea, and I know that ComicPress 3 will do the same thing. Some features just slap you in the face. I’m also working in features to make AutoComic more flexible.
In the meantime, speaking of AutoComic, I’m always looking for new arrow sets. The ones that ship with stripShow (you can find them in your iconsets/ folder) were made by me, and if there’s one thing I’m not, it’s a designer. If anyone has created a set of icons for AutoComic, please feel free to let me know!
