Keenspace Dropdown Navigation

For discussions, announcements, non-technical questions and anything else comics-related or otherwise that doesn't fit in any of the other categories.

The beautiful thing, though is that it's customizable. Like putting my strip at the top of my bar. ::coughs!::<P>------------------

Hey all :)
Until the keenspace guys make us an automatic one I went ahead and made a
dropdown Keenspace menu where you can access all the Keenspace strips. If you
want it simply go to <A HREF="http://superdupe.keenspace.com" TARGET=_blank>http://superdupe.keenspace.com</A> and view the source code.
You want to copy paste everything from the Javascript start all the way to
the form end. If you have any problems feel free to mail me personally at

We could make these the categories for a dropdown list: novice comics (less than two months), developing comics (2-6 months), established comics (6-12 months), time tested comics (more than one year). These sub categories can all be put into just one dropdown list (to save space), separated by lines. Any other ideas for categories?<P>------------------

Pretty ambitious, Rich!<P>With the size of Keenspace already though, I think what's gonna have to happen is several dropdowns... Categorized by genre. That would maximize click-thrus, and keep any Keenspace list from being what they are now: Essentially useless because of length alone. Anyone agree?<P>------------------

I disagree because some strips don't belong to any particular genre and might get stuffed into a category they really don't belong to.<P><P>------------------

</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>There must be some way to do this and not pigeonhole anyone. Roberto's idea sounds pretty good... All I know is, a dropdown list with 90 comics on it is of no use whatsoever. Not to mention the fact that Keenspace has only been running for two weeks... How many comics will there be in another month?<P>------------------

The only problem I see with this is that there are not that many comic strips that are even past the 6th month mark. My own comic, COMIC!!!, has been around for 6 months so therefore it does happen to be an exception. Not to mention the fact that noone will want to visit "novice comics" which would technically include comics like Common Grounds and Exploitation Now that deserve a looksie.<P>What I'm gonna do is personalize it to show my favorite comics on Keenspace(I also put my two comics in there too, of course), a list of only about 20, which is much easier to handle. I know that would leave many people without a chance to get on anyone's list, so noone has to do what I'm doing. Not to mention Chris and Darren have a plan they're still working on(they're working on adding descriptions to the comics on the Keenspace list, last time I checked) so we can't rush them, especially with the amount of comics that are added every week. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif"><P>----------------

Burnt Dog Radio is brand new but I've been cranking out comics for 5 years - 3 on the web. And I've been pretty much consistently daily since last October (except for the 2 month gap in Jan/Feb!!). Why am I writing this obvious plug - cause Burnt Dog Radio needs your page views!!<P>------------------

What I'd like to have for Keenspace is a dropdown that only displays a list of comics that have updated THAT DAY. This way everybody gets exposure, but the cartoonists who do more strips a week get more exposure, it's a better navigational tool for the regular readers, and it keeps the length of the menu way down. I'm not sure how feasible this idea is yet, but I should know soon.<P>------------------

I mean, Big Panda has Java of somekind that check to see if a comic has been updated that day. In any case, I think that kind of a dropdown is a GREAT idea. And that's not just because my comic would be on it everyday. Nope. Not at all. But that's a VERY good benefit. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>------------------
