I have a ton of CIDU mail, and it might be a few days before I can give it the attention it deserves.
First, please send everything — both comics, and comments intended only for me — to this address:
If you use any other address, I might or might not ever see it.
Also: The complete left sidebar still does exist in this new template: Look to the left, where the sidebar just says COMICS I DON’T UNDERSTAND followed by “Home” and “Your Random Comments.” Above COMICS I DON’T UNDERSTAND, to the right of the three horizontal lines, is an icon that looks like a folder. Click that, and the full left sidebar will appear.
I know. This is counter-intuitive at best and borderline insane at worst. Presumably, somebody thought this was a good idea.
Many of you have already figured this out, but understandably many have not.

Lots of differences from the one we’ve been using. Clears up some of the drawbacks, but it’s got a bit of a learning curve.
Testing the “link” thing: Bill Bickel’s Crimeweek.
For now, this is a 24-hour experiment.
Okay, now the Blogroll should work. Apparently the problem was, WordPress doesn’t like people using HTML, or doesn’t trust people to use HTML, and it kept adding extraneous code every time I saved it.
Regarding the fonts: apparently there’s nothing to be done about the grey default text; but I was able to replace the annoying-to-read Grasshopper Green text with red, which shows up nice and sharp and easy on the eyes.
They allow over a hundred different font types, most of them with a dozen size options and many style options (regular, bold, italic), but very few color options unless you want to create your own palette.
I should add that a lot of people are contacting me offering help and advice, and it’s all appreciated; but I can’t get back to everybody on a timely basis, and for that I apologize.
Still on the to-do list: Continue reading →
Not fancy, but it has a sidebar while allowing sufficient space for the comics to display. Amazing how many templates do one but not both.
I don’t see any major problems, yet
Please use only this address to send me CIDUs, LOLs, etc. And if possible, send both the graphic and the URL (because graphics don’t always get through, and URLs don’t always work).
Yes, I know the template has a “contact” link: but anything sent there gets lumped in with all the notifications WordPress sends me every day, so I’m likely to miss it.
Welcome to CIDU’s new home. Continue reading →
Please note that this is intended for public comic comments only: if you want to send me a CIDU, or a comic for some specific folder (Ewww, Oy, etc), or you want to inform me of a typo, please e-mail me at CiduBill@gmx.com
