Gear may be up, but a lot of things seem to be missing completely at the moment.
I'm making a cast page for my comic (finally). With a page editor you can just plunk the pictures into the page, but I know that isn't going to work properly for other people to see. I'm assuming I have to FTP the images so they show up, so where exactly do they go? And do I need to put HTML code into the page editor so the pictures show up where I want them to?

...I can't believe I'm actually starting to miss that blank square most sites called an "Advanced" template.

Images go into the /images directory.

Links should be absolute, so in your code, the link should look like:
Code: Select all
<img src="http://godoftarot.keenspace.com/images/character1.jpg">


Yes, you do need to ftp your images onto the server.

And if you've got a WYSIWYG editor, it should be generating the code to put the images where you want them. Thats generally what they are supposed to do.

I forgot to ask this (of course I did, I'm so flakey today).
So I've got my images in. I got the actual page "cast.html". Now what? I figure I have to put that page into the Webpages folder, but I don't understand how it connects. I'm sure there's an html script to like it, but I don't know what it is.

...I forgot how much HTML made my head hurt.

upload to /workspace/webpages

then log in to siteadmin, and run a "regular update", then autokeen will create the actual yousitename.keenspace.com/cast.html (BTW, don't forget the ***advertisement*** at the top)
You are the Non. You must go now, and never return."

"1.Scan in high res 2.tweak with curves,levels or something to clean up the scan (or use channel mixer to remove blue pencil lines) 3.Add colour using a layer set to multiply. 4.Add wordbubbles and text as vector shapes. 5. Merge all layers. 6.resize to the web size. 7. Export/Save for Web" that's all I know about webcomicking.

Er, I'm still having some troubles with the images. No big surprise there...I've always had that problem. Images like me even less than saran wrap...:(
