Upgrades! New Vote Incentive!

Upgrades! New Vote Incentive! published on

Surprise! I had a minor fit of webdesignitis recently and turned the whole site upside-down. I was looking to accomplish a few different goals by doing this, and I think I hit most of them. I was getting really tired of the same dark layout and tried to make something that better reflects the art in the comic itself, which is what it’s all about anyway. I built the new layout using Webcomic’s Archimedes skeleton theme, and it’s the first time I’ve really done a WordPress layout almost entirely from scratch this way. I’m really pleased with the result, and I hope you are, too.

If by chance you do find something that just isn’t working right, please don’t hesitate to let me know in a comment or in this forum thread. I was pretty thorough about bughunting, but there’s always something that slips by.

There’s also a new vote incentive up for now, just a drawing from the 100 themes meme I have not been keeping up with at all.

Please also consider voting for other Hive Comics!

Miscellaneous Updates

Miscellaneous Updates published on No Comments on Miscellaneous Updates

General back-end updates to the site today, just checking to be sure everything still works. I’ve also installed an extra plugin that will automatically port all my news blogs over to the Messenger LiveJournal Community, if you’re into that sort of thing.

I also don’t think I mentioned it when I put it together, but I’ve also made a Facebook page for the comic, so you can add yourself as a fan if you’d like.

In addition to the technical stuff, I’ve also been working to add in some of the stuff that got lost from the site a couple of years ago when it was hacked. One thing I’ve been meaning to add was the Story Guide, which is basically just a running summary of the story so far in case you missed a detail from earlier on. The story is getting longer and longer all the time, and for something that only updates once a week you might need the occasional refresher.

That’s all for now!
