Oh something I wanted to throw out there, I think adding an optional scroll mode for mobile might be cool? I don’t really read a lot of webtoons stuff but a lot of the current crop of newbie comic artists apparently do. Some of my friends who are just starting out have been working in that format as well, so idk having that option might help pull in some new blood if implemented well?
So all pages appear in a giant scroll like on Manga hosting site?

Yeah, like that! It could follow the same format where you separate scrolling sections by chapter or something.

Our sub pages are broken and need fixing. :(

At least fix them so that one need not have an account they have to log into in order to see them; I know some of my readers aren't members here, so they can't even access the subpages I made for VAMPIRE GIRL's site, like a characters page and archive.

I accept this, although wouldn't it be nice if we could ask the site admin (!) to add a few lines of code into our comic, like a statcounter code block.

Sorry, no HTML or CSS stuff, the net has moved on way too far now and there are two huge issues with that:

1. It's open to easy exploitation of the site that we don't have time to combat and fix.

In our present DD version the comic authors can define the design of their comic pages. Will this still be the case in the “reborn” version of the website?
It seems to me that the comics (on my PC) are displayed within a wide margin. I think it is important that this border is only displayed if the actual width of the comic graphic is exceeded (or the default width of the comic). I.e. it should be omitted on smartphones.


EDIT:
Just opened the ‘reborn’ site on my smartphone: Looks great!

Well, the manga hosting sites I know also have “chapters”, which strictly speaking corresponds to our pages. Because at DD, anyone who wants to can already build endlessly long “chapters” by putting his or her pictures into a large, mile-long graphic and then uploading it.
The only serious limit is probably the maximum storage capacity of the submitted graphics.

Haven't really got that planned for a coding change now but yes that's something I would like .
