The migration of Monkey Law

To see how stripShow 3 does in the wild, I’ve upgraded my hoary old webcomic Monkey Law to stripShow 3.0a3!

What did I find? Not too much in the way of problems.

  • My theme had a width set on one of the sidebars that got broken by something in stripShow Sandbox. I removed it.
  • There is a bug in 3.0a3 which, instead of choosing between the template files single-comic.php and single.php, shows them both. That turned out to be, embarrassingly enough, a missingĀ else clause. Oops.
  • stripShow’s calendar widget doesn’t work. Well, duh, of course it doesn’t, when dealing with custom post types. I’ll be working on that in the coming days. Best look at the storyline dropdown too.

I’ll be adding features to Monkey Law, to showcase features in stripShow 3 — like cataloguing where each character appears and giving them their own page. Stay tuned for details.

    Hey there, I’m trying the 3.0 alpha release, but it’s kinda hard to get around theming with actions. For instance, things like creating a custom loop just for posts of a certain category is a bit difficult for me.

    I tried getting into the forums, but even though I registered I haven’t received my password email to gain access.

    Seems like a very cool plugin to use, but so far the support is kinda lacking.
