A kind reader on Facebook notified me that the comments feature here on the site was more or less borked. I had a look at the backend and believe I have solved the problem.
I hate to have to even use the CAPTCHA feature and whatnot, but you wouldn’t believe the level of spam I have to wade through.
In actual comic news, chapter five is complete and I’m currently working on chapter six, which I hope to start in May.
Did you know that Velharthis has a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a Tumblr? Links to new pages are posted on all three accounts, and I’d like to post more exclusive content, too.
Right now, the Twitter account has 30 followers, the Facebook page has 65 Likes, and the Tumblr has 10 followers. The account that can gain 5 new followers (or likes) first will get an exclusive new watercolour Velharthis painting. If all accounts can get 5 new followers (or likes) before the end of March, I will post five new pages of Velharthis for the week of April 6th. That’s a Monday to Friday update week!
I am currently working on chapter 5, and it is scheduled to start next Monday (January 19th).
As regards the site itself, I’m going to try to use scheduling tools so that those who follow social media updates for the comic (or those that are interested), will be able to enjoy more enhanced updates (basically, more of a visual update rather than the text-only with link stuff you’re currently seeing on those sites). Twitter and Tumblr were easy enough to figure out. Facebook might be more of a challenge, but we’ll see what I can do.
And with regards to my last post (“Some Screwed Up Posts” on December 8th), I went back to fix that finally, only to discover I can no longer replicate the issue. I must therefore assume the issue was caused by some previous version of WordPress, and has since been corrected. However, if you’re still seeing it, let me know.
Firstly, there’s no comic today. It appears that I uploaded them on the wrong dates. But you’ll still get two pages this week, just on Wednesday and Thursday instead of Monday and Wednesday.
Also, there’s some issue with earlier pages where you’ll be reading through them sequentially and then, suddenly, you’re taken to a news post. I know someone wrote to me about it, too (and I never wrote back yet ;.;) but I haven’t sat down to figure out what is causing it. Wrong tags? Comicpress messed up? Or something else? I’ll have to sit down and have a look. There’s a handful of other things I’d like to fix too, when I get the time.
