Hey there - I'm new around here, but I've tried to find a solution for this on my own & have come up empty.

My problem is my webcomic is hosted on WordPress + Webcomic + Inkblot, but my thewebcomiclist shows 'Not Checked For Updates' in green, meaning it'll never be updated due to an incompatibility.

I've seen this in an earlier comment:

Frumph wrote:
ComicPress 2.9.2.20 will have this:

Code:

<!-- Last Update: <?php the_time('M jS, Y'); ?> // -->


In the header, so you won't have to worry about re-adding it every time.


Is this also a solution for my WordPress + Webcomic + Inkblot setup? If so, where should it go?

If not, what can I do, even if it means adding something manually with every update?

Thanks - this seems to be a good community.

If you're using WordPress, add

<!-- Last Update: <?php the_time('M jS, Y'); ?> // -->

into your theme's header. It's standard PHP code, not anything ComicPress-specific. Put it just before the </head> tag and you should be fine.

Thank-you, Zoe, for the WordPress advice.

I suppose I'll wait a week or so to see if the crawler updates on its own before putting out a call to Ash.

This post appears to have the fix for sites running ComicPress:

http://www.thewebcomiclist.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=112351#112351

Note that after you've got your code configured and working, you need to come to TWCL and use the "Report broken comic" link in your comic's TWCL entry to get their spider to start checking it again.

Hey, how do I change my signature on this forum?
I tried to go to Profile, but it leads me to the TWCL profile, not the forum profile and I can't seem to find anything related to signature.

PostPosted: Sat Aug 06, 2011 3:27 pm    Post subject: Drupal 7 and TWCL Reply with quote

I noticed recently my comic listing was no longer being checked for updates. When I inquired as to why, Norah was able to help me with this letting me know its because I needed to have <!-- Last Update dd/mm/yyyy --> in the HTML code for the page listing the last date the comic was updated. Simple enough except that I use Drupal, the only HTML code on the site is generated via PHP scripts.

After a few days of testing, a little research on PHP script sites, and more help from Norah; I was able to piece together the right PHP code which updates the date code automatically every time I post a new comic, and the right placement of the code to get my site to work with the TWCL system.

So if you are running a webcomic on Drupal 7 you can insert this code into your theme's "html.tpl.php" document just after the <body> tag but before the </body> tag and it will update the date stamp in the generated HTML on it's own every time a new comic node is created:

<?php
// get date of most most recent change to a node
$result = db_query('SELECT title, changed FROM {node} WHERE status=1 ORDER BY changed DESC LIMIT 1');
$node = $result->fetchObject();
$date = date('d/m/Y', $node->changed);
echo "<!-- Last Update: $date -->" ;
?>

Hi. I have sent messages requesting help for the avatar and signature but I haven't received any reply from the staff, yet. There's still someone in charge of this?

Thank's for the help you can provide.

Yep. I'm still doing it.

I'm just running a bit behind right now. I'll get right on it.

I'm on it since a time ago. Sorry but I must say the attention is quite slow.

Hey there everyone,

I wanted to advertise on webcomiclist.com - so I clicked on the upper banner for the $15 ad, but when I'm asked to choose my webcomic from the drop down menu, it doesn't appear at all. And I'm logged in, and I did have an image for my profile page/info. I've checked everywhere on the forum but no one seems to have had this problem. Help please?

Can anyone help me with the avatar and signature plus info on the banner publicity stuff? I've been on this for quite a while. Please answer if there is something that could be done.
