Want to favorite a cover? easy peasy! Just click on ‘add to favorites’ while you’re on the single cover view.
Want to add covers? That’s easy too! Just click on the PLUS sign that’s to the right of the title, add your cover and a comment and it’ll be automatically uploaded.
I’ll have a system in place soon for adding new series, stay tuned!
I’ve added the ability to rate and favorite covers from their page. You can view the top rated and top favorited covers in the sidebar, which is getting a bit over crowded, so I think I’m going to move some of those widgets to the footer or maybe immediately under the galleries themselves.
At the moment, the display page for favorites is going to be blank, as it’s not entirely 100% compatible with the way I’m using WordPress, so I’m going to need to edit it’s script a fair bit to do what I’m wanting it to. Until then, you can be safe in the knowledge that any covers you favorite now will eventually show up in your own favorites gallery.
As my first real addition to the site in a long while (9 years, wtf?) I’ve added next week’s free comics, you can check them all out here: www.comiccovers.com/collection/fcbd-2016/
just click on the image while you’re on the big image page and it’ll rotate 90 degrees.
New cover system is in place, I’ve gotten the forwarding working for the most part too. Next up : ratings and comments and user submissions!
Images may be wonky for the next couple days as I import them into wordpress. Previously the images and content were all being served to you by a custom hand built script. It worked great if I was the only person doing work on it, but was a nightmare to allow third parties to add scans.
There’s also going to be some ratings and meta data fields added to the site, along with tracking of how many submissions, comments and additions that the community adds, on a per user level. Let me know if you have suggestions, I’m going to be working on getting the scans re-uploaded and getting the 301 redirects in place for incoming traffic.
