Another Minor Design Change
May 10, 2007 09:37 PM
Today I made another design change to the comics database. I added links to the "Issue" column in the comics database. The link takes you to a new page which shows a thumbnail preview of a comic scan and all the information about the scene. It's basically the same thing I do on the video clips page. The reason for this change is because I felt navigating the giant list of scenes with all those tiny numbered links was confusing and annoying. I've decided to remove that column of tiny numbered links for the time being, just to try this out. If you guys don't like it I'll go back.
The new comics info page has a navigator on the bottom that can goto the previous and next records. It also has a link to a random scene in the database. Since I just created this, there could be some errors. If you see a weird bug let me know so I can fix it.
I implemented a little feature that counts the number of times a scene is viewed. Hopefully after some time, it will give a rough sense of which scene is the most popular. The scene counter may seem kind of glitchy at first (especially the comics scene counter). I'm also afraid someone might try to artificially inflate the scene counters, but no one could possibly have that dismal of a life.
