multiple comments and the such

Postby Surfinsofaspud on Mon Jan 09, 2006 5:21 pm

my friend and i have started not so avarage... and now i want to add comments by both him and myself. problem is he lives way far away from me. the best way fo ys to toss the files around is to ftp however i can never get them to assemble in two seperate columns. (my vision is the look that fred gallager got at [url][/url] sans the pictures... till i can figure that out as well)

i searched and read alot of different posts and they all point to one solution for this issue.


it seems all i can do is either make a hugely difficult html thingy or some other code writing shenanigans that i have not the knowledge to do...

there must be an easier way...(opens invitation for great and enligetening answers form the great and mighty 'smart ones')

You can just throw your text file comments in without any accompanying code; it's just that they'll end up looking kind of austere. If you want something more along the lines of Megatokyo's rants, you'll have to learn to code the HTML accordingly.

that's just it when i do throw the two .txt files in there. they both appear in the 2 columns. i've reverted to the original format now but they both appear both columns even if i name them. 20060109a.txt and 200060109b.txt like I hope to do with today's. i had hoped to find a non code heavy way to do this... or even a tut... no dice i suppose... well into the mayhem and gnashing of teeth that is html code (at least to me it is...^_^)

You can try and use ***todays_notes***. It works much the same as the text file method, but you can put the tag where you want and it's separate from the ***todays_comics*** tag.

Here's the thread about it:

that's just it... that's what i'm doing... i use ***todays_notes*** just like the tut... infact i read the tut as i did it.... had 2 .txt docs... and if i put ***todays_notes*** twice for my 2 rants then it jus copy of both

<edit/> course that's just what i'd think it'd do... after all i jus told it to copy the ***todays_notes*** twice... jus wonder how to seperate them usint that tag iffen i canzzz<edit/>

<edit/> (again) and now my rants won't even show up....

is there a prob with the ***todays_notes*** tag or what?

Something that may help....

Sex Percussions has a comment from both myself and its artist, as well as links to our respective pages. By using a table as part of the text file. In essenc, the text file look like this:

<tr><td><a href="/archive.html"><img src="/images/storystart.gif"></a></td>
<td width="310" valign="top" border="3" bgcolor="66ccff"><p><img width="135" align="left" src="/images/anotes.gif"><font color="000000">
<a href=""><img width="150" src="/images/TSPLogoColor.jpg" border="0"></a></p>
<font color="000000"><p>Welcome to our little experiment. I hope that it will be as fun for you as it is for us!</p></font>

<td width="310" valign="top" border="3" bgcolor="66ccff"><font color="000000"><p><img align="left" width="140" src="/images/arnotes.gif">
<a href=""><img width="150" src="/images/Juathuur_MvsR_468x60.jpg" border="0"></a></p>
