Not able to Update at all.

Been on Comic Genesis for years now, but for some reason the auto-update stopped updating for since 6/16. I've put up comics with newer dates several times but they don't take. Manually updating doesn't work either, reglardless of it being a regular update, full site, or index. Replacement comics don't update, and neither to webpages. I can upload images and update images, but nothing else.

Can someone please look into why?

Hi Unagrand,

This is a really weird problem. It seems like something might be glitched with your site, somehow. I recommend PMing an Admin, as they might need to do something to the back-end in order to fix it.

edit: Also, check to make sure that "AutoUpdate Comic" is set to YES in Site Admin.

Ugrand - Have you/How did you solve your problem?
I'm having the same trouble - and have been having it for the last year -

my index page isn't updating - I've tried various ways to get it to update but it doesn't seem to pick it up from the workspace folder -_-
It's driven me nuts and put me off updating the comic because nothing seems to work for me.

I've tried using the manual updating (index and full page) with a new indextemplate.html file in the workspace - no luck.
I've tried deleting the index file from the public folder and manually updating - in this case no index.html appears when I refresh. I just have my 404 page missing error layout.
I am currently using a indextemplate.html with the 'template' erased from the file name so my readers can at least be kept aware that I'm trying to fix the problem :ick: This also means that I can't show any of the Keenspace Ads that should be visible either.

LibertyCabbage - Would you be able to PM an admin or wrangler and ask if they could give the GoneAstray comic a squirt with WD40 or equivalent coding kick to try to rattle whatever the jamming issue is for me too? I don't want to give up on the comic but I'm stuck for updating the index and have been for some time.

Hi, Tanami,

I'm just a regular poster like yourself, so if you send an admin a PM, it'll get there just as fast as if I'd sent it. The admins' usernames are Kisai and STrRedWolf.

In the meantime, you can make temporary "First" and "Previous" buttons by editing your index.html to add a couple hyperlinks. Replace ***first_day*** and ***previous_day*** with:
Code: Select all
<a href="http://goneastray.comicgenesis.com/d/20011201.html">First comic</a> <a href="http://goneastray.comicgenesis.com/d/20100305.html">Previous comic</a>

And for the latest comic, you can use an image file in your /images/ folder. Replace ***todays_comics*** with:
Code: Select all
<img src="http://goneastray.comicgenesis.com/images/20121128.jpg">

Lastly, so it doesn't say "***comic_name***" in the browser tab, change what's in the <title> tag. Replace ***comic_name*** with:
Code: Select all

Cheers Liberty Cabbage - I've had another idea about a possible code issue that may fix things. I'm going to try it now then pm admin if it still gives me grief.
Thank you again!
