C-Section Comics, 2.0

(Tl;dr – C-Section Comics has a new design, check it out!)

Scrum is Happy!

Today I’m proud to introduce a brand new design to C-Section Comics (check it out if you’re reading this in your inbox or feed reader).

The most important concept in the new design was simplicity – cut down on unnecessary menus and links and give you, the reader, just what you need, where you need it. You’ll notice the comics appear much higher on the page than previously, so it’ll be the first thing you look upon when entering the site. Navigation buttons are right under the comics, along with a random comic button. You can also click on the comic image in order to navigate to the next one.

I’m also proud to finally make the move from Blogger (which I’ve been using for years now to host my comics) to the WordPress blogging platform, along with the ComicPress plug-in. The WordPress/ComicPress combination is a powerful one, and I’m sure it will give me the versatility I need in order to make your experience with C-Section comics a better one.

In the upcoming weeks there may still be some glitches and server falls and I struggle my way though PHP scripting and the art of managing domains. If you find something is broken, please let me know. And if you have improvements you’d like to propose, I’ll be happy to hear those as well. Either contact me or leave them in the comment section.

Enough talk for now – go check out the site! 🙂

    Hey,

    Like it a bunch. Even more the fact that the RSS feed now seems to contain the comic directly. One less click to consumption!

    BTW- Can you please get a paginator section above the comic too? Even a small one with just back/forward?

    1. Thanks Ashish 🙂
      You’re not the first one suggesting the upper navigation. I’m trying to see how I can add it without ruining the design. In the meanwhile, I’ve added an Archive drop-down menu and a search form at the top of the left sidebar. So you can browse through the archive at the top of the page (or search for something you’ve encountered previously). I’ll also try to find a keyboard navigation plugin – that’ll be the best IMO.

      Thanks again!
