WCN Tooncasting Script Now Available for Free
Submitted by Joey Manley on September 14, 2006 - 13:54
If you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know what tooncasting is, hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the simplest version: itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a way that people who run websites can put your latest strip on their own pages, which constantly updates as your comic updates Ã¢â‚¬â€ and which, of course, contains full attribution and a link back to your own website, where the archives to your comic can be found. Some cartoonists have found this a very useful tool for building an audience. Others reel in horror at the thought of it. Up to you!
The version I am releasing requires you to update some variables by hand every time your actual comic updates. Anybody who updates his or her comic with a database script should be able to quickly and easily add code to pull the necessary variables from the same database, making this an automated thing again.
Instructions are provided inline within the script itself.
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t forget to change the file extension to .php when you save this file on your server.
Oh, and one other thing: while IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m certain that thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing in here that could cause any problems, this code is provided as-is, and there is no warranty, implied or otherwise, nor will I be offering any technical support.
