Monthly Traffic Graph Updated

Postby Admin » November 17th, 2017, 2:05 am

Since Flash is getting put to sleep, we had to overhaul our monthly traffic graph as it was Flash-based. The new one is almost identical to the old one, but not Flash, so it should work again for people who were starting to have problems seeing it.

Hey! I was surprised ..."wait, this looks different... and it loads faster than the old graph."
It's not Flash but what is it? just curious.

And now I can see it on my phone! ^.^ I tried all sorts of tricks to make it work, but nothing had worked.

It's HTML5 Canvas. The graph itself is drawn with JavaScript, using the Chart.js library.

Minor request, which is only tangentially related: Could the colour legend above the chart please be made into text rather than an image? Images don't zoom well. I suspect it's an image only because of the lines in it, but there are text characters for that. Or better yet, for better colour identity, use a bullet (• or •) or something similar. The graph isn't all lines anyway, the green line always bugged me xP

Edit: HTML code for it, copy+pastable instead of the image:
Code: Select all
<span style="font-size: 0.7em;"><span style="color: #003366;">&9679; Page Views</span> <span style="color: #990000; margin-left: .7em;">&9679; Unique Visitors</span> <span style="color: #75cf74; margin-left: .7em;">&9679; Comic Updates</span>
</span>

Admittedly, the circles don't look great in Firefox at such small sizes, so perhaps another character might do better. I quite like &cir; but it's a bit small.

Oh... I wasn't aware that my old browser here could handle it. I use Firefox ESR ...because I have XP running.

What's wrong with you? Just kidding, I had a really hard time giving up XP.

I really missed that graph! I'm more than pleased to see it back!

Had a feeling it looked slightly different. Such a useful tool to have!

What browser do you use on your laptop, and what version? If it's very old, it might not support HTML5 canvas. Also, make sure that JavaScript is enabled in your browser and not blocked by any extensions.
