We have a webcomic that has been running for 2 years on a custom comic navigation system written by my co-creator. With over 250 comics and dozens of pages of extra content, we were worried about switching to something new. Our biggest concern was finding a system that would allow us to keep the existing layout/look of our website, while giving us the benefits of a CMS. We loved the idea of using WordPress as the backbone, but were not impressed with the other plug-ins/themes out there.
We found the Webcomic plug-in and are very happy we did. We used it with the Inkblot theme which was specifically created for this system. It took just about a week to convert our whole site over. We were able to maintain the look of the old site and keep the functionality nearly identical. Except now we have a much easier way of updating/maintaining our comic, and our readers have an easier way to connect with us.
An added plus with the Webcomic plug-in is that the creator is actively involved in the continued development and support of the plug-in. He is very prompt with offering help and troubleshooting through the forums on his site.
We are so happy with Webcomic we have already installed it on one of our sub-sites and plan to open another comic using it very soon. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a well-written, easy-to-use webcomic publishing system.
