Comicnav template... Edit

Hey. I have no idea if you even check this wiki any longer, but I noticed you created the comicnav template. The thing is, if you've checked Brawl in the Family lately, you'll notice with the move to Keenspot, the URL's are formatted differently. They now fit a "date/comic number-comic name" format, rather than the "?p=page number" of before. Anyway, I'd fix the template myself, but I don't really know how. I can try if I don't here a response within the next couple of days from you, but if you could find the time to visit here and update this template, that'd be great. 1337star 21:37, March 14, 2011 (UTC)


I'm still here. I've just been lurking recently. Haven't made very many changes. When I swooped in here a while back I thought it would be helpful to frame things out a little bit, because the site needed a little help with structuring.

I didn't realize the URL format had changed. I've been using Google Reader recently to get comic updates. I'll try and see what I can do. Pcdude2143 21:54, March 14, 2011 (UTC)


I found a loophole in keenspot that allows references much like the old ones. The format is

http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/?page_id=###

The only issue is how to find the page_id. Stay tuned. Pcdude2143 22:10, March 14, 2011 (UTC)


I have other stuff to do, but maybe we can pretty-please Matt to make it easier for us? I'll look more into it later. Pcdude2143 22:15, March 14, 2011 (UTC)


I have fixed the issue. Template:comicnav pulls the names and URLs from Template:comicurl and Template:comictitle. You need to update these whenever a new comic comes out. To do that, just run the script at User:pcdude2143/bitfgen.py, and the new comicurl and comictitle will be saved to BitF_url.txt and BitF_title.txt. You can then copy these back to the site. Of course you'll need Python to run the script. There may be a way I can automate this further, but I'm not sure how yet. This is definitely better than copy-pasting from the Archive page though.
