Support » Plugin: Manga+Press Comic Manager » Make images link to next page?

  • I was trying to figure out how to take the functionality of the “Next” button and apply it to the comic images on each single page. The reason is being asked by someone saying it makes browsing mobile much easier.

    I’ve narrowed it down to somehow putting in correct dynamic link code on single-comic.php from something in template-functions.php

    Again, I’m just trying to have the comic pages clickable to the next page, mainly for mobile users.

    Somewhere in this code needs changed I presume?

    <?php mangapress_comic_navigation(); ?>
    <div class="mangapress-media-img">
        <?php echo wp_get_attachment_image( get_post_thumbnail_id(), $thumbnail_size, false );?>
    <?php mangapress_comic_navigation(); ?>

    Without a visual, I’m not sure what you’re asking. The navigation should be present on each comic page, since Manga+Press is filtering the_content and replacing it with the output of the code displayed above. If you can provide me with a link to the site, and the theme you’re using, I’ll be happy to help.

    If you need to make the navigation links bigger, that can be accomplished with CSS and media queries instead of trying to change the template code.

    Hello again. Maybe I wasn’t explaining it well. I’m simply asking if by clicking or tapping the actual comic image, it also acts as the “Next” button, going to the next page.

    Comic site (subdomain is for the comic specifically):

    Theme I’m using:


    I think I see what @fxscreamer was asking; something similar to how a comic on smackjeeves contains a code in each page that navigates to the next page. Granted I’m not as savvy at this, but I hope that helps in some way. ;v; <3

    Awesome, thanks! Now I’m seeing how that’s supposed to work. And colored me shocked to find that Smack Jeeves is still around.

    Anyway, I think this code-fragment might do what you’re asking:

    However, be warned: I haven’t tested this so your mileage may vary!

    It should go in the template for either the single comic view (single-comic.php) or Latest Comic template (latest-comic.php). Since you’re using a 3rd party theme, it’s good practice to create a child-theme of your main-theme first, then add the templates you wish to override.

    These links provides some additional information on extending Manga+Press with child-themes, or creating a child-theme in general:

    Hope this helps!

    Without a visual, I don’t know what you’re inquiring. The route ought to be available on every comic page since Manga+Press is sifting the_content and supplanting it with the yield of the code shown previously. In the event that you can give me a connection to the site, and the topic you’re utilizing, I’ll be upbeat to help.

    On the off chance that you have to make the route joins greater, that can be refined with CSS and media questions as opposed to endeavoring to change the layout code.
