A quick update on the new site design: work continues and I’m hopeful we’ll be able to debut it for April.
I’m also carefully thinking through the various functions of the site. One of the reasons I switched ComixTalk to the Drupal software in 2006 was to open up posting to the readers. Every registered user of ComixTalk can post a Talk Post without having to go through me or any other editors.
Many readers of this site also have their own outside blogs though where they write about comics. I want to make it easier for readers to share such posts with the ComixTALK community. I’ve added a function to the site that let’s you automatically import into ComixTalk the posts from your outside blog. If you’re already blogging elsewhere and want to share those posts with the ComixTALK community you’ll no longer have to recreate those posts here – our site will do it for you.
All you need to do is click here and type in the RSS or ATOM feed for your outside blog where it says "Feed URL:" (filling out the other text boxes is optional). I’ve started a forum thread here to help with identfying the best RSS or ATOM feed to use from your outside blog (you can help add to that in the comments). Then ComixTALK.com will regularly check your outside blog and turn your posts there into your Talk Posts here (and all such imported posts will have a link back to the original outside blog post).
Any questions? Post a comment here or email me at xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com
