ComicPress 2.1 Released

ComicPress 2.1, the latest version of ComicPress, accomodates the new Widgets and Tag features introduced in the last two major releases of WordPress as well as various other improvements.

ComicPress continues to help webcomic creators create their websites and publish their comics with WordPress. Modified versions of the theme are now seen at such Webcomic sites as Scott Kurtz's PVPonline, Chris Harding's new We The Robots, Warren Ellis' upcoming Freak Angels and even the creative use of it for a comic podcast as seen at Around Comics.

The theme is attractive enough to be used as is, but simple enough to be customized the way you want it with a little CSS know-how. By creating your website with WordPress, you are taking advantage of one of the most popular and well-produced content systems as well as tapping into its vast amount of support and its wealth of addons.

They forgot to mention that it's also being used at Shuriken Diaries, which is umpteen billion times more popular than PVP, We the Robots, and Around Comics COMBINED*1.

*1: a filthy lie.

The improvements are nice, but me thinks I'll wait until version 3 before I consider overhauling everything. It was something of a betch to get things the way I like'em, and while the features are great for newcomers, the fact that it's listed as a "*.1" update is pretty accurate. Kudos to Mr ComicPress for keeping it going, though, it's an awesome theme!

I applaud this trend and have been long working on getting more artists and web comic creators interested in using Wordpress. It's the foundation of my AWSOM.org website and the reason why I've been developing the Wordpress plugins that are available there (plugins for an Image archive/gallery, News Announcement, and Posts Archive)
