I cannot stress enough how important it is for people to use comic press if they are just starting out in web comics. When I began my web comic I had so many things to worry about - the art, the coloring, the lines everything. The last thing I needed to do was learn how to code a website. Thanks to this plugin I was able to begin making my comic in a very short time and focus on getting my comic better instead of learning CSS and other coding issues. I am so happy that this exists and I highly recommend it if you are new to comics want to get your work on the web and do not want to spend all your time learning how to program! It is easy to use and more importantly it is easy for your readers to navigate through your comics. Give it a try!
I gotta say, for all that they claim it makes everything easier than ComicPress, I've had nothing but headaches. Latest one being the whole 'Chapters' debacle. If you put your comics into separate chapters, hitting the 'First' button no longer takes you to your very first comic, but instead to the first comic of the current chapter. I have over 1000 comics, and in order to fix this, I now have to go through each comic and set it's chapter to just 'comic'. They all have to be the same. Problem is; I can't bulk edit it. Doing so only adds a new chapter title to each comic; it wont simply take the unwanted chapter title away. So now I get to change them all by hand. This is a huge headache, and it was NOT how I wanted to spend my free time.
I spent all day just trying to get ONE widget out of it to show thumbnails it clearly was designed to do. Any documentation I can find on the mess wants you to be a CSS building genius - when (surprise!) there are still a lot of comic artists out there who are more interested in getting the next page done as opposed to wasting their time on the internet all day.
Good system, okay, I can't say stable because I've been booted out ten times so far unable to log back in for whatever reason. Mostly I'm annoyed. If you're going to offer a widget, offer one that works. Not one that's got a single solitary link to a forum post that answers your issue... that's DOWN.
But thank you for this free system anyway. I'm not totally unappreciative. Just angry at my lost time. And wishing I wasn't being forced to use WordPress for this in the first place.
There aren't enough reviews of this plugin. I can't imagine how many webcomics are running on this FREE plugin. This seriously makes everything possible. Always being updated, and the author is always down to answer questions if you tweet/email/whatever him.
I mean, seriously. I tried the other webcomic theme for wordpress and it was confusing as hell. Who spends all their time (I'm sure it's not ALL his time) making a sweet-ass plugin that's simple, easy to use and free? Someone who really loves the webcomic community, that's who.
Give him more stars. Send him a few bucks, or at very least take the time to write him a review and say thanks.
Excellent plugin with support you can count on from a dedicated developer who has given an unprecedented amount of time and love to the Webcomic community over the years. It is currently the backend of many professional comic Websites.
There are only two real plugin for managing correctly comics under WP. This one is very well integrated in WP engine.
