MindFeck comics (19 posts)

    I recently started a website with (almost) daily comics. The address is mindfeck.info

    I have noticed that some people have trouble navigating the site. Any suggestions on how to make it simpler to use, look better, etc?

    Stick to one topic about the same issue. Double posts get deleted...
    And be patient.

    It looks okay to me. I didn't have any navigation problems, aside from the link you provided taking me to an unformatted page.

    moshu, you're not very helpful. Obviously I wanted this one deleted because the title and body don't draw any attention. Instead you deleted my other one, and provided no useful information. Patience would not have brought anyone else here.

    jwurster, an unformatted page is a big deal. What are you talking about?

    Mindfeck, you're not very kind. People doing their outmost best to this supportforum. As moshu said: be patient!

    I want to delete this post and repost it with a different name and more info and he won't let me. I told him last time that I would prefer to have my older post deleted.

    Now, I don't see the problem. It must have been a hickup on your server.

    Sorry, I don't take instructions regarding what to delete or what not.
    An older post is considered the original - anything posted later about the same = duplicate.

    And, Mindfeck, you should ask more focused questions. "Having troubles navigating" is a little bit vague... I didn't know what to look at.

    Someone told me that she didn't know how to get to another comic. Anyone could have their own ideas about the site. Any comments are welcome.

    Well, in that case I'd think about
    a) changing the "previous entries" text - for non-bloggers that's not obvious... right?
    b) making it bigger, changing colours... to make it more prominent.

    And another thing. I admit it's personal taste but I think it is a humour-killer to try to explain any joke - be it just comics. If a humourous thing needs "explanation" that's bad. If you think that your visitors are not able to interpret the drawings, the message - that's kinda insulting...

    Thanks, I followed all of the suggestions. The reason I had words under the comic is so the sidebar doesn't go down much farther than the left side. I don't want a big blank area. Instead, I put some commentary that I hope doesn't insult the viewer.

    I always look at the 'about me' page and yours suggests that you don't really care about mindfeck.info...(to paraphrase) you did a website for a company, so you kinda did one for myself but your real website is somewhere else...

    It's also not obvious if the comics are your own work.

    I'd agree with the navigation comments.

    The previous comic is page 2, the previous previous comic is page 3, the previous previous previous comic is page 4?? It doesn't make sense. Surely it should be 1,2,3,4 and not 4,3,2,1?

    Some people have voted on your comics. How do I?

    I searched for the word 'express', used in comic 6. Your search engine returned no hits. Does it only search the text descriptions?

    Good luck with the paypal donation button!

    I did a whois search on your domain.... you're a 'Conglomerate'...how does that feel?

    Nice site design but not really friendly to use.

    Apologies but you did ask for comments!!

    No, thanks for the comments.

    "I always look at the 'about me' page and yours suggests that you don't really care about mindfeck.info...(to paraphrase) you did a website for a company, so you kinda did one for myself but your real website is somewhere else..."
    At first it was going to be my blog, and my professional site was going to be elsewhere. I'll change that and say that I made the comics.

    I changed the navigation links. Are they still not clear?

    "The previous comic is page 2, the previous previous comic is page 3, the previous previous previous comic is page 4?? It doesn't make sense. Surely it should be 1,2,3,4 and not 4,3,2,1?"
    Wordpress makes the main page "page 1," and each previous page is another page back. Does anyone know how I can change this to make it more clear?

    "Some people have voted on your comics. How do I?"
    You click on the stars on each link to vote. I'm guessing that's not obvious.

    "I searched for the word 'express', used in comic 6. Your search engine returned no hits. Does it only search the text descriptions?"
    It can't search images. Maybe if I use "alt" descriptions it will work. I'll try to figure that out.

    Thank you for your help. Please respond.

    So is it better now? Is there any way to fix it so that going to a previous page from the main page doesn't show a header of Page 2, Page 3, Page 4, etc.?

    Well, I went there, looked at the Monty Python style joke that was corny 40 years ago and left. What else ?
