Way to fall asleep on the crapper SJ staff! I didn't spend the better part of a month on my comics, so that everyone could see what happens all the way up to late January, before they were supposed to. Now if I wanna keep my readers coming, I have to whip up ANOTHER month and a half's worth of strips upon returning home from my Christmas trip! This sort of royal screw up never happened prior to the "improvements" I can tell you that. Can't wait for the PR excuse given for this one.

Sorry guys. I had to basically re-code the webcomic viewing script in order to incorporate the upcoming chapter management system, and it seems I made a mistake in letting unreleased comics display publicly. I'm fairly sure now that I've fixed the issue - visiting comics on a non-author account, I can now only see what is supposed to be publicly released.

I'm still having the trouble that, if I'm logged in, the "Latest Comic" displays the ones hidden from the public rather than the latest public page. It's not really a huge problem, because it does show the latest published page when I'm logged out; it simply makes it more difficult for me to figure out what the current page is.

Thanks!

Interesting point. How do others feel about this? Would you rather see the latest public comic or the absolute latest comic when you're the author and you visit "latest comic"?

Naturally, there's advantages to both being able to see the ones you pre-set and not being able to see them, so I think users should be able to decide whether they want to be able to see their own preset comics or not...

I don't think he's talking about their visibility to the author, just about where the "Latest Comic" link should point.
