Hey Admin,

Just wondering if anyone has encountered this problem or if its just me. When Im not signed in, pages seem to randomly go missing in the first chapter of my comic. Also my subpages don't load when logged out. Thankfully, everything is fine after signing in, but I don't want this to be a problem when sharing my work with non members.

Any help please?

Ok, the pages missing issue will be because the data on your pages are set too far in the future.in order for them to display correctly make sure it's a date that's already happened.
Make sure your year is right! It's a really common mistake.

I don't know about the subpages though. Please post a link here.

Interesting. The year updates every time you update the page to whatever the current year is. I'm not sure I can control this when I update- pretty sure its just a timestamp handled on the back end. Not sure why this would be chained to log out either, since it works fine signed it. That said, given that Dec 23rd is right around the corner, maybe the issue will resolve itself after the date passes.

The subpage is here https://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Invasive_Species/cast/

That year updating thing is a bug.
You have to change the comic's dat to a date that has already passed so that the pages are visible. :/
They're only viewable to you because you created them, no one else.
I went through and changed them all for you manually… It's a bit of work in the admin system because I need to fill in missing fields in the page for each time (the comic name and image extension). The admin setup is stupid!

I still don't know what's with the the subpages! :(

Yes, it seems that subpages are only available to logged in users… I had to test that because I didn't know.
:/

Thanks much for your effort! Looks much better now but have one problem with the cover page (very first page) still showing as Dec 17, 2020 rather than Dec 17, 2019. Could you help me update that one page? I would like the front page to accurately reflect the date the comic went live.

I will include a notice in my misc links to sign in for the subpages.

Sorry mate I wasnt sure if you'd gotten my last message and had changed it to January instead of December as a test. Would you be able to nick it back over to December 17, 2019? Thanks so much!!
