-That's something I've been considering off and on for at least a decade. My problem is, I have no freakin' idea how to implement such a thing, and have never really had the time to practice. Hell, right now I desperately need to get up to speed with the CNC software side of things, and I haven't had so much as six and a half minutes to spare to watch a friggin' YouTube video.ChicagoPopsicle wrote: That being said- perhaps it might be time to consider a site redesign?

It also provides an opportunity to clean things up and make going through old strips easier- week/month at a time browsing, comments and tags per strip, etc. Something for mobile users might be possible as well too- the strip keeps getting pushed down by other things, so lots of scrolling is a thing on smaller screens.
-ComicPress is an add-on/template for WordPress, which has been notorious for it's security holes.

Are there other creators you could ask for recommendations?
