Before Posting
Please browse/search the Knowledge Base & FAQs Forum for the answer to your problem before posting. It contains an extremely helpful, organized list of common help topics.

Got a Bug?
Post it in Bugs & Glitches, not here.

Rules

    1) Use descriptive titles for your threads. Example: "How do I upload comics?" Do not use vague titles like, "question," "HELP! ANYBODY??"

    2) Describe your problem in detail. Explain exactly what is wrong. Post images, screen shots, links, code snippets - whatever is relevant. The better the information you provide, the better the solution you will receive.

    3) One question per thread. Do not post multiple questions in one thread; that way, we can resolve questions individually. Make a new thread for each question you have, unless your questions are closely related.

    4) Be polite. The more polite you are, the more people will want to help you. Be patient, and we will help you find the solution to your problem.

If your question has been resolved, please say so. A thank you would also be nice. If your question has NOT been answered, say so in the original topic. If your topic has been moved to resolved, you may then AND ONLY THEN post a new topic regarding the same issue.

So I have a question. I have my comic on SJ but I also host the same comic on my own personal domain. On that site I have a 'lore' section that I post a variety of topics on and such that link to their own subpages. I really want to have the same content on this site too to flesh out the comic world. But not only would it be tedious to duplicate all that again here, but I'm not even really sure how I would do it.

Is it acceptable for me to have a link in my SJ comic header that links to this? I don't want to break rules and I understand if this isn't exactly kosher. It's your site, I don't want to plaster something that could be perceived as advertisement on it. Just wanted to clarify. thanks.

Yep, you're welcome to do that! It's not against the rules at all.

I did something similar with an old comic of mine, it's no problem at all.
I even had a special "you're not on SJ anymore! click here to go back" bar that would display on the linked page if the referrer was SJ (in retrospect, this could've been done more simply by passing a parameter with the URL).


Edit: Unrelated, but your main site seems rather slow. The pages load fast once they start loading, but they take a bit to actually start loading. Sounds like the server itself might be slow?

neat! thanks.

yea it is slower than I would like. I use dreamhost. no idea if there's anything I can do about it. Had it for coming on 3 years now and it's never really been the pinnacle of speed. I would assume it's all on their end unless it's some sort of database issue.
