Hi there everyone!

Oz and the developers have been working behind the scenes to bring you a new drag and drop feature to make reordering comics easier. This feature will be available on both mobile and desktop. However, before it’s rolled out, we’re doing some beta testing first.

This is where we need your help!

"We need to test the drag and drop feature, both on computer and most importantly on mobile browsers!

Here is the test site:
https://next.theduckwebcomics.com/

If you have an account there you can sign into it or create a new one.
Add a comic and test the comic organisation feature on the page list.

It's drag and drop so you have to select near the cross on the left so you can move the comic to a different spot.
You can also move it to a different “page” just by dragging it over the “next” and “previous” buttons at the bottom of the screen!

I found it very tricky on mobile but possible. There needs to be instructions and the movement handles need to be a lot bigger.
What improvements can you suggest for it and how was you experience using it?"





Thanks again everyone! We hope to continue bringing more improvements like this to you in the future.
Stay safe and we’ll see you in the next one!


Don’t forget to join us on Sunday evening for our Quackchat at 5:30PM(EST)!

Don’t forget you can now advertise on DrunkDuck for just $2 in whichever ad spot you like! The money goes straight into running the site. Want to know more? Click this link here! Or, if you want to help us keep the lights on you can sponsor us on Patreon. Every bit helps us!

That's a shame. I think we're reinstating arrows for use on mobile devices.

The feature don’t work on the iPhone. It just wants to copy the image or save it.

Me too, with the "not allowed" thing, but then the page index numbers changed! Hovering the pointer over Previous seems to "take" after a couple of seconds.

@ozoneocean: I tried doing that a bunch of times, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I just get a “not allowed” icon when I try to move it over that field

I found that by selecting the cross and dragging a comic page down to the bottom of the screen, so the comic page list scrolled up until I saw the Next and Previous buttons -- then hovering my pointer over the Previous button -- didn't do anything right away... but after a couple of seconds I saw the page number change. I was editing a 4-page index comic, so when I kept the pointer over Previous the current page went from page 1... to page 2... then page 3... then page 4. Each change taking a second or two. I could then drop the comic page I was moving into index page 4. Later I pulled it back to the top of index page 1 without problems. My phone's just too small, I'll try to get hold of my dear missus's tablet and try that, too, if I can pry it from her cold, shopping channel-centric claws.

Indeed, on one of my comics, I moved the latest comic page from the top position on page 1 of the pages list, to the bottom position of page 4. Rather useful for inserting title pages, etc. at the front of a comic.

@marcorossi thankyou, please test it?

Ozoneocean at 7:53AM, Aug. 6, 2021

@dpat57 thanks!

Ozoneocean at 7:52AM, Aug. 6, 2021

@Andreas_Helixfinger you already have an account there

Ozoneocean at 7:48AM, Aug. 6, 2021

@fallipian- please drag the comic down to the next and previous buttons. This pus the comic on whatever page you like.

fallopiancrusader at 7:19AM, Aug. 6, 2021

The drag and drop feature works great! At some point in the development roadmap, it would be great if we could also move pages to the "next" page. Say, for the situation where I might want to add a page at the very beginning of the comic...

I tried to create an account twice on the test site. But I'm not getting my verification E-mail for some reason. Weird:/

dpat57 at 5:50AM, Aug. 6, 2021

Oh, oh, forget that, something happened lol, suddenly I was on the last page (the start of the comic) and could drop the comic page I was moving there. I'll keep playing and try to figure the best way to do this, but the drag and drop option is working for sure.

dpat57 at 5:25AM, Aug. 6, 2021

My pointer changes to a little hand when I hover over the cross, and I can drag a comic up and down easily. But I can't drag it onto the Previous or Next buttons, the "no entry" circle with a line through it symbol displays when I drag-hover the cross onto Previous or Next.

Thanks for the efforts!
