Wet Moon 6 page 10



man, this new blogger/blogspot interface sucks. i hate how it makes you put in all the HTML coding now, like paragraph breaks and stuff, instead of just being able to type regularly and blogspot converts it! what kind of upgrade is that?! and before, i could be editing an old post and jump straight to a new one: what i'll do is go into the edit mode for the previous post and cut-and-paste the page-scroller code at the bottom, and i could jump from that straight to a new post. but now in the edit mode, there's no "new post" button anymore, you have to go back to the main dashboard and then hit new post. hmph.

and despite using the exact same code for the page scrolling widget at the bottom here, the new formatting screws up the width of the bars and i can't figure out why. >:| EDIT: Lisje figured it out, blogger deletes the width value for some reason! WHY?!?

i also hate how it displays how many pageviews you get. maybe the old version did that but it wasn't prominent, in this new version it's all right there and you can't miss it. now i can see how each new post decreases in views from the last and how my Nissa & Nora post only had 5 views, a couple of which were probably me. how does that happen?! i guess the post only gets views when somebody clicks directly on it, not reads it from the main blog page? i don't know. page stats are too discouraging! XD

anyway, meanwhile AGAIN! Mara and Zia trapped in the maze of Fern's house!

  1. You're missing a width="72%" on your pagination table, that's why the size isn't right anymore.
    So instead of a <table border="0" align="center">, you should have <table width="72%" border="0" align="center">.

    Hope that helps.

    1. thanks! that's still really weird, though, why does blogger delete that section?? when i go into edit mode, that 72% width is there but the HTML text is all mashed together into one big block, so i click "compose" which makes everything rich text or whatever, then back to HTML so it formats it correctly, but by switching between those two modes it deletes the width 72%. WHY??? T_T

    I'm a creepy mom who likes you (in the stalker way.. wait..) nah, you're awesome. Blogger sucks. This is gonna sound probably weird but I love how you draw shaved/buzzed hair. Looks legit.

  3. Never commented on your work before, but I love it! I have Wet Moon 1--5, and I can't wait for part 6 to _finally_ come out... me and my friends and family who I have lent the other parts to ;-)... Should encourage them to buy them for themselves as wel, hehe. I love the way the work in progress is displayed here (or do you have the entire thing done already and are just posting it incrementally?) Anyway, about the pageviews, don't be discouraged! I read this blog from my RSS reader, which probably doesn't count as a page view, and I'm sure other people do as well... By the way I love the Brody/Nissa&Nora sketches... please post more sketches! They are always very inspiring :-)

    1. thank you so much for reading Wet Moon! and i really appreciate the comment!! :)

      Wet Moon 6 is actually completely finished, i finished it at the end of November last year, but my publisher isn't releasing it until October of this year so i wanted to make up for the long-ass wait since volume 5 and decided to post this weekly preview leading up to the book's release!

      i'm glad you like the drawings/illustrations, too! i wish i had more time to do them but they're so time-consuming so i don't get to do them often, but when i do i try to go all out.

      you should also check out, if you haven't already, my other comic Shadoweyes!!! there are 2 books so far but it also runs online at www.shadoweyes.net and updates with a page every Monday. it's sort of similar to Wet Moon, similar character dynamics, but it's a dystopian setting that involves a superpowered vigilante. XD

      thanks again for commenting and everything. :)
