As much as I like reading the great comics we have in the HM Comics section... Is it just me or does anyone else think it's kind of prehistoric? It bugs me that i can't read the comics without scrolling right-to-left and up and down, only able to view sections of a page at a time. It would be different if each page opened up to full size like the gallery images but i have yet to see any page larger than my monitor in its full glory. I'm not sure what the parameters or cost of installing a comic viewer like the ones at Marvel or DC are...but is it possible that we can implement even a cheap one to upgrade the reading? Or am I just being nit-picky?

I've been thinking about the same myself...

EDIT :This is just a quick test... but here ya go: http://heromorph.com/heromorph2/modules/sections3/index.php?op=viewarticle&artid=18

Better?

Yeah, I know you said Fullscreen features and maybe there are a few other things I can try but Xoops (and the template we have for the comics section) isn't very friendly with changes.

Ok Star, just because you asked: http://heromorph.com/heromorph2/modules/sections3/index.php?op=viewarticle&artid=5



How about a poll to find out wich style is better:

1. Old style present on most comics
2. Navigation thru thumbs present on Digital Interface
3. Fullscreen view (or the closest I can make ) present on Knockout Vee Stories #1


Lemme know your preferences and in due time I'll change the rest of the comics to the one with more votes.

Ok, so we have one vote for option 3.

Any one else has anything to say?

I have a wide screen monitor and the full screen option just shows the lower half of the page without any ability to scroll... could be my browser, but I prefer the other option in light of this.

Bio, If I remember corretly from a past test I did, You belong to that 0.00001% of the popuplation that has javascript disabled on their browsers.
And all options I put to test so far need javascript enabled to be fully funtional.

But... thinking about you (and the reat of those who don't have javascript enabled), I tried to find a way to show the comics without javascript (although an updated browser is a must) and here it is: Option 4
The voting continues...

OH and btw, on option 3. although the scrolling ability, the idea is to use the keyboard arrows up&down to read the page.

Um, does that mean you're not counting Bio's vote for option 2, O?

I use javascript enabled and have no problem running any of these viewers. While I do think option #3 is cool and quite slick, I don't like the fact that it doesn't seem to zoom out and I find often enough, comic pages are designed to be viewed as a whole page for maximum effect and not being allowed to do that diminishes the viewing experience for me. The same is true of option 4. This is why I voted option 2.

Nope, I'm counting all votes. I just pointed that I asked Bio one time to test something for me and he didn't have javascript enabled wich led me to add Option 4 to the poll.

Just an update on the voting so far:

Option 1. Old style present on most comics -- 0 votes
Option 2. Navigation thru thumbs present on Digital Interface -- 3 votes
Option 3. Fullscreen view (or the closest I can make ) present on Knockout Vee Stories #1 -- 4 votes
Option 4. Navigation thru thumbs without javascript present on Explosive Vee Stories #1 -- 0 votes

Any more votes until I have some free time to implement the winning option?

HEY! what ever happened to the new comic viewer? did we come to a conclusion? i was expecting to see the latest comics using the new viewer but yet i still had to scroll to read them. i know we tested a few comics using various viewers but i assumed once we reached a decision then all the comics would be converted to said viewer.
