Sometimes someone will ask me a question on the Comic Genesis forums through the pm system. Rather than simply sending them a reply and "losing" the effort of writing it, I'll post them here (sans any private info) so that if the question comes up again I can more easily reply.

To put an image where you want it:
  1. Create the image (which you've already done) and save it on your computer. The important part here would be to save it in the smallest size possible (as in Kb's) but keeping the quality that you like.
  2. Use your ftp program to connect to your comic genesis account and put all the images into the public_html/images folder.
  3. Edit your templates to include the <img> tags wherever you want the image.
Now, the actual code that you ought to use to link to any images would be:
CODE
<img src="url" title="description" width="##" height="##">
Explanation:
    url - Yes, to link to an image in the public_html/images folder you use "/images/name.jpg"
    title - This one is not essential, but I recommend it. What it does is to display the description when the mouse hovers over the link. Traditionally IE displays the alt text when the mouse hovers, but that's actually a bug and it isn't supposed to do that. By using the title tag you can get the same effect across browsers. Just make sure that it's relevant and to keep it short.
    width and height - these you should already know about. The reason for using them is so that as the table loads, all the bits end up where they are supposed to go, rather than having the page jump around as the images load.

This is a copy of a wiki page tutorial that I've added to the Comic Genesis Wiki. The last time I added stuff it dissappeared during an upgrade, so I want a backup here.

Update: new version from 24 / 06 / 2007

QUOTE

== Changing the passwords ==

Most people that use the internet are aware that there is a need to change passwords on a fairly regular basis in order to improve security. Just how important you feel this is will depend on how paranoid you are and how likely it is that someone will want to try and get into your accounts. There can also be more mundane reasons, such as living in a shared house or having to use a public computer while your own is being repaired.

=== Comic Account / FTP password ===

To change the password for your comic account:

#Go to the [http://siteadmin.comicgenesis.com:8080/cgi-bin/lost_password.cgi Password Manager] section of siteadmin.
#Type your comic's name (not the url) into the "Comic Name" field.
#Type your new password into the "Custom Password" field.
#Type your new password again into the "Verify Custom Password" field.
#Click the "Generate New Password" box.

Note that the "Generate New Password" box does not create a new password at random. This button will cause an email to be sent to the email address that you registered the comic with. Go to your email and look for the new message. It is normally "instantaneous" (within a few minutes), but may take up to a few hours depending on server load and traffic. <b>Note that your old password is still in effect!</b>

Also note that you don't need to enter the old password anywhere.

This message will have an activation code that you will need to submit before your new password will start working. Once you have recieved your activation code, go back to the [http://siteadmin.comicgenesis.com:8080/cgi-bin/lost_password.cgi Password Manager] and enter the activation code into the bottom field.

It is easier and more acurate to copy and paste than it is to manually type it in, but make sure that you don't add a space on the end by accident.

After you've entered the activation code, click the "Activate" box.

If the change was succesful, you'll get a confirmation screen stating so. Your new password is now the one to use.

=== Changing the Forum password ===

The forum password is changed in pretty much the same way as most forums, but for those new to forums it's included here.

#Log into the forum.
#Click on "Profile" at the top of the page.
#In the top section, fill in the spaces for current password, new password and confirm new password.
#Click "Submit" at the bottom of the page.


----


Once you have your accounts set up, most people don't bother changing passwords. But if you do, make sure you keep track of which one you're using.

Another cross-save from the CGWiki.

Updated 24/06/07

QUOTE
== Adding more pages to your comic ==

There are many reasons for an author to want to have more pages on their comic. These extra pages can have all sorts of information on them, including (but not limited to) cast information, author information, links to favourite sites, background information and so on. Adding more pages is relatively simple.

The first thing to keep in mind is that all pages of your comic (including pages that don't have actual comics on them) <b>must have</b> the [[Tagtorial#.2A.2A.2Aadvertisement.2A.2A.2A|advertisment]] at the top of the page and the "hosted by Comic Genesis" message at the bottom. This is how you 'pay' for your free account.

Other than that, you can pretty much have anything.

One final note: the comic should be the bulk of the content on your account. You shouldn't have more story pages than comic pages since Comic Genesis is a comic host, not a book host.

== How to add more pages ==

This process is fairly simple. First, decide what it is that you want on your new page. Once you've decided, follow this procedure:

*Create your html code for your new page. You can do this in your preferred software. Make sure that you include the [[Tagtorial|Keentags]] that you want to use, including the one for the advertisement.
*Upload the html file(s) to the workspace/webpages folder of your account.
*Trigger a full update.

After the update runs, you should now see your new pages. By putting the html file into the workspace/webpages folder, the server will copy the file directly to the public_html folder.

As an example: let's say you've made a page called "bios.html" for the biographies of your characters. By uploading "bios.html" to the workspace/webpages folder you'll end up with a file which you access with the url <nowiki>http://comicname.comicgenesis.com/bios.html - note that you don't need to use "webpages" anywhere in the url.</nowiki>

=== Also, subpages are possible! ===

If you have a lot of extra pages you can organise them into additional folders. So if you create the folder "characters" in the webpages folder, the folder will carry over to the public_html side.

To illustrate: in the workspace/webpages folder you add the "characters" folder giving you workspace/webpages/characters. Any html files that you put into the characters folder will appear as <nowiki>http://comicname.comicgenesis.com/characters/filename.html</nowiki> on your site.

If you have any specific or general questions, pop into the [http://forums.comicgenesis.com/viewforum.php?f=1 Help Center] and ask. There is usually someone around that can help.

Copy of "deleting strips" wiki article.


QUOTE
Do you:

*Want to get rid of an unwanted strip from your comic?
*Want to eliminate the sample from when you registered?
*Want to fix a typo or small mistake in one of your strips?
*Want to rearrange the order of some strips?

Then this tutorial is for you!

== Deleting a Strip ==

In order to totally remove a strip from your archive (except the latest which is on the index) you need to remove both the image and the html code. In order to do this you need to be able to access your comic account through an ftp program. This tutorial assumes that you know how to use your ftp software.

#Determine which strips you want to remove. For this example, we'll use the 2006 Christmas Strip (20061225.jpg).
#Access your account so that you can see the files in your public_html folder.
#Go to the public_html/comic folder and delete the file 20061225.jpg (and any others you don't want).
#Go to the public_html/d folder and delete the file 20061225.html (the html files with the same date).
#Go to the siteadmin page and trigger a regular update if the deleted strips are recent or a full update if the deleted strips are more than two weeks old.

The reson for triggering an update is that if you don't the pages on either side of the missing comics will point into the empty gap and your readers will get a 404 error. After the update, check to make sure that the pages on either side point to each other instead of at the hole.

== Deleting the Latest Strip ==

If you want to change / don't like the image that is your most current comic then the procedure is slightly different.

#Access your account so that you can see the files in your public_html folder.
#Go to the public_html/comic folder and delete the image.
#Go to the siteadmin page and trigger an index update. This will cause the server to replace the current comic. No other html pages need to be changed since the second-latest page will still point to the index.

You don't need to delete anything from the public_html/d folder since the index sits directly in the public_html folder and the update will rebuild it anyway.

== Replacing a strip ==

In order to replace a strip, it'll fall into two categories:

=== Replacing a strip with the same strip, modified ===

If you only need to make a small change (fix a typo, correct the color, etc) and basically want to replace the existing strip with the same strip (so long as it's the same size - height + width) then all you need to do is delete the original strip from the public_html/comics folder and upload the new comic image to the public_html/comics folder. You don't need to put it in the workspace folder or run an update as the html code for that day will look for the image in the same place. Since it has the same name and is the same size, it'll fit straight in.

The only problem would be for readers who have already seen the deleted version as their computer would most likely continue to display the unwanted version. The solution is to simply refresh their browser and they'll get the new version from the server.

=== Replacing a strip with a totally different image ===

On the other hand, if you want to replace a strip with something totally different ("totally different" is an image that is not the same width + height, even one pixel difference counts as different).

However, this is quite easy. Simply follow steps 1 to 4 in "Deleting a Strip" above, then upload the new image(s) to the workspace/comics folder.

Once the files are uploaded, <i>then</i> do step 5 and trigger the update.

== Rearranging the order of strips ==

If you've accidentally added strips in the wrong order (or given them the wrong date in their name) and want to put them into the right order, it's basically the same as the replace step above.

#Determine which strips you want to move.
#Access your account so that you can see the files in your public_html folder.
#Go to the public_html/comic folder and delete the incorrectly placed files.
#Go to the public_html/d folder and delete the appropriate files (the html files with the same name as the files deleted in step 3).
#Upload the 'new' files (with the correct names) to the workspace/comics folder.
#Go to the siteadmin page and trigger a regular update if the deleted strips are recent or a full update if the deleted strips are more than two weeks old.

"where to begin" wiki article/

QUOTE

Making your comic site look better than the bland white default is sometimes the first thing that a webcomicer wants to do. However, before you do, there are a few things to consider:

===Do you know any html?===

Comic Genesis does not come with any default templates that the user can just pick and choose at their leisure. In order to allow maximum freedom and creativity, Comic Genesis allows it's members to use html code to create their webpages virtually from scratch.

That's fine if you happen to be good at coding in html, but if you're an art student then odds are you won't know a whole lot about it (or you may, it depends on the individual). If you don't, there are severel resources available to you.

*[http://cwcomics.comicgenesis.com/generator/ html Generator]: Made by c.w. (a member of the Comic Genesis forums), the html generator will give you a good overview of basic html and at the same time provide you with the code necessary to get your site running. Easy as cut-n-paste!
*[http://www.htmlgoodies.com/primers/html/article.php/3478131 htmlgoodies]: A great place for the absolute novice, with the ability to jump ahead for those who already know a bit of html.
*[http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_examples.asp W3Schools]: Very good for basics, with examples and a sandbox for you to play in.
*[http://forums.comicgenesis.com/viewforum.php?f=1 Comic Gensis Help Center]: Best for specific questions, there's normally a few people around to give you some help. Make life easier for yourself (and increase the chance of getting quick, effective answers) by reading the [http://forums.comicgenesis.com/viewtopic.php?t=70890 Help Center FAQ] (includes copies of the default templates in case ou lose them)

If you can't be bothered learning html, it's always possible to ask someone else to do it for you. Have look in the [http://forums.comicgenesis.com/viewtopic.php?t=63416 CG Webdesigner Yellow Pages] and see if someone is willing to do it for you. Remember to follow instructions, and be careful who you give your login details to.

===Where to begin?===

Okay, so you know some html or have roped someone into doing it for you. Where do you start?

A better question might be "where do you <i>end</i>"? Some people try too hard and end up putting too many things on their site. They look at a famous (or at least bigger) webcomic and think that their own is too bland and empty in comparison.

Well, there's a reason the famous webcomic has all that stuff on the page. It's normally a lot of ads and / or links to other things. Why do they have the ads? Normally to pay for hosting. Why all the links and vote buttons? Because they are cross-linking or supporting other comics. Do you have to do the same? Short answer: no!

Don't lose sight of the fact that the reason people come to your comic is <b>to read your comic!</b>

A nice, clean layout will help the reader focus on your work. Keeping the number of images down will help lower the bandwidth, makingthe comic load faster. Getting rid of (or not having it to start with) all that debris will make people more likely to want to read your comic.

===Okay, so where to begin?===

The first thing that you need to consider is will your comic be black and white or in colour? If it's in colour, which colours will you use? Will the colours of the site make your comic stand out or bland in?

Most of the questions are basic design points, but the main idea is to work out how you want it to look. Grab a pencil and paper and draw out a few boxes to show where you want the comic to go, where the banner will go and anything else that you want to have.

Remember to KISS: Keep it simple! (What the other "s" means will vary, make up your own mind)

Font size wiki article

QUOTE

Since most people who read this are looking to create a site for their webcomic, the font type and size will probably not be very important to them. After all, most of the text will be a part of images, so it'll be set in Photoshop or hand drawn, depending on how the comic is created.

However, some creators will want to add some text. Be it just news, a linked blog or pages and pages of background information on the characters, there are a few details to keep in mind.

===Setting fonts with <nowiki><body></nowiki> tag===

The <nowiki><body></nowiki> tag is fairly easy to use in html. The only specification to be made for fonts is the colour. For example, at the top of a page you may see the following:

<body bgcolor="black" text="white">

This will give the page a black background and make the letters white. The actual colours chosen will depend on a few things, but some people consider the two main options to be either white text on black background or black text on white background (default). Be careful with your combinations to make them legible.

For anyone who just uses the <nowiki><body></nowiki> tag without a Cascading Style Sheet (css), then the colour is pretty much the only thing to worry about.

===Setting fonts with a CSS file===

The css can either be a seperate file or it can be a style at the top of the page. Fully explaining css is beyond the scope of this tutorial, but quick search should give some decent css tutorials.

For fonts, there are three main things that can be set by the css:
*Font colour.
*Font face.
*Font size.

The colour is fairly easy. Once you start playing with it, you'll find a combination that you like and that works well with your comic.

The face is a little harder. If you're not sure what this means, read [http://www.w3schools.com/css/pr_font_font-family.asp this introduction to Font Families] on W3Schools. The short version is: don't obsess too much with the face as you'll never be sure what fonts the reader does (or does not) have installed on their computer.

However, there is a lot to be said about the font size. We'll get to that in a moment.

To set the font properties in a css file, you'd normally see something like this:

  { color: #000000; font-family: courier, serif; font-size: 10px; }

(To the left of the { symbol will normally be the item being specified. If it was a <nowiki><p></nowiki> (paragraph) tag then every paragraph element would have that setting.)

The first part sets the colour. Easy. The second part sets the font family. Again, fairly easy. The last part is the font size, in this case set to ten pixels. However, specifying the size of the font in pixels is a rather bad idea.

===Setting the Font Size===

As a general rule, you shouldn't specify the font size at all. There are so many different people using so many different browsers in so many different configurations that it will always look bad on someone's computer. Lately it has become commonplace to set the font size in pixels, but that's wrong.

Why? Think of it this way: a letter that's 12 pixels high on a monitor with a resolution of 800 x 600 will be quite easy to read. Almost too big to be comfortable. A letter that is 12 pixels high on a monitor with a resolution of 1024 x 768 will still be quite legible, if a little small. That same 12 pixel high letter will be nigh on illegible on a monitor with a 1600 x 1200 resolution.

So if you shouldn't use pixels to set the font size, what should you use?

<b>Use the Em setting for Font sizes.</b>

What is an "Em"? The term Em is from the world of the printing press (people who make books). In short, it just means "the width of the letter M being printed". You can read the long version [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Em_%28typography%29 here] if you're interested.

So how does that apply to webcomicers? When you specify font sizes, you should normally set the font as (from the example above):

  { color: #000000; font-family: courier, serif; font-size: 1em; }

<i>(Note that this example focusses on the <u>size</u>, not the other elements such as colour or face)</i>

What does "1em" actually <u>mean</u>? Basically, it says "use the default size". Most browsers have the option to [http://www.xs4all.nl/~sbpoley/main/adjust.html set the default font size] to however the user wishes. Someone who is shortsighted may set their font larger in order to be able to read the text. Someone who is using an old monitor may set the font to be smaller in order to fit more onto the screen. If you lock the size by using 10px, then you take away the readers choice in how to display the text.

So by using the em instead of the px to define the size of the font will make your page much more friendly to navigate for more people.

===Bigger or smaller font sizes?===

With the em, it's fairly straightforward to set the size for different parts of your site, such as headings and captions.

<b>Bigger:</b> Defining the font as 1.5em is the same as saying "set font to 150% of default".

<b>Smaller:</b> Defining the font as 0.5em is the same as saying "set the font to half of the default".

Obviously you wouldn't do this for <i>all</i> your text, just for the parts that you want to change. And you aren't limited to 50% increments. There's a nice write-up on this topic at [http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/font-size w3.org] that is well worth reading.

Start with the banner stub from wiki:

QUOTE

When you are designing the layout of your comic site, it may be helpful to start with the banner that you will use to either advertise your comic or place at the top of the page.

By starting there, you will give yourself a "feel" for how the page will look. If you use blue and red in the banner, it may be nice to use red and blue in many places on the rest of the page. If you use a metallic grill background on your banner, you may want to use the same metallic grill on your buttons so that the site all looks like it belongs together.

This procedure may not help everyone, but it can be a good way to get yourself started.

Another Wiki backup: advanced options explained.

QUOTE

==The advanced options in the siteadmin explained==

For those that don't know, the [http://siteadmin.comicgenesis.com/login.php? siteadmin] has additioanl options. Most of them you don't normally need to worry about or alter, but they are explained here for those that are curious.

===How to see the advanced options===

#Go to the [http://siteadmin.comicgenesis.com/login.php? siteadmin page] and log in to your account.
#Click on your comic (should have a black Comic Genesis logo on the left).
#Click on "Comic Data"
#Set "Advanced Options" to "Yes"
#Click on "Submit" at the bottom of the page.

If the list of options remains the same, click on "Submit" again. You should now see a long list of additional options with [ADVANCED] in the right hand column.

===What do they mean?===

All the options are listed here, including the non-advanced ones.

*<b>Comic Name:</b> This mainly just affects what you see on the list of comics (if you have more than one) when you first log into the siteadmin. Does not appear to interact with any Keentags.

*<b>Name Sort Order:</b> <i>You can ignore this one.</i> This is an element from the Guide from KeenSpace. This option was available if your comic did not appear in the right place alphabetically.

*<b>Comic Directory (/d):</b> <i>Do not change!</i> This option tells the server which folder in the public_html section to place the completed non-index, non-extra html code files.

*<b>Comic Directory (/w):</b> <i>Do not change!</i> As above, except that this folder is for the html files for displaying a whole week's worth of strips.

*<b>Comic Directory ( ):</b> <i>Not recommended that this be changed.</i> This option tells the server where to place the html files generated for any files placed in the workspace/webpages folder. Normally, this is the root folder of the public_html section.

*<b>Comic Directory (/images):</b> <i>Do not change!</i> This option tells the server where to place the files that originate from the workspace/images folder.

*<b>Workspace Directory (/workspace/comics):</b> <i>Do not change!</i> This option tells the server which folder to check for new comics.

*<b>Workspace Directory (/workspace/webpages):</b> <i>Do not change!</i> This option tells the server where the additional webpages are located.

*<b>If not index.html, which file should be shown?:</b> <i>Can be changed, but does not appear to work at this time.</i> This option is here for those comics that don't want the latest comic to be the first thing a reader sees. It could be used for comics that need a warning for content before the reader sees the comic, comics that want the comic to stay hidden initially to save spoilers, etc.

*<b>index.html template name (indextemplate.html):</b> <i>Don not change!</i> This option tells the server what the name is of the file to use to create the index.html file.

*<b>YYYYMMDD.html template name (dailytemplate.html):</b> <i>Do not change!</i> As above, but this option tells the server which file to use to create the daily pages for the archive. The files created end up in the public_html/d folder.

*<b>Weekly template name (weeklytemplate.html):</b> <i>Do not change!</i> This option tells the server which file to use to create the weekly html files. The files created from this end up in the public_html/w folder. If you want to have weekly files, you need to create a weeklytemplate.html file and place it in the workspace folder.

*<b>Comic Prefix ( ):</b> <i>Leave blank.</i> This option is available in case you want to run two comics in the one account. It ends up creating a lot of unwanted headaches, so the better option is to create a new comic account for your new comic and add it to your forum account in the siteadmin.

*<b>Comic Address ( ):</b> <i>Leave blank.</i> This is an old option from the Guide days. This is depreciated.

*<b>Advanced Comic Settings (On/Off):</b> This toggles the Advanced settings between hidden (Off) and visible so that you can alter them (On). It's adviseable to leave the options hidden unless you're changing something as it's too easy to accidentally break your comic and then not know why.

*<b>Autoupdate comic (Yes/No):</b> This option is available if you don't want the server to process your comic. There are two main reasons to do this 1: You do all your own code and don't want to use AutoKeen or 2: You have finished with the comic and don't plan to update it again.

*<b>Update Offset time:</b> This option is available in order to set what time the comic will update. This is further explained [http://www.reasonedcognition.com/offset-explanation.html here].

*<b>Comic Description:</b> Write out a short description about your comic here. This is used in a few places, mainly the Guide which is depreciated so it's not that important. Brevity is endorsed.
