UPDATE 2 (6/17/2015): I finally updated the new page! For those who want to check out the archived comics prior to the July return, you can do so by heading to the below link:
Natively Awkward also has a Twitter if you want to follow that too: @NatAwkComic
UPDATE (6/16/2015): After contacting WordPress Support on the below issues, I might have resolved it based on their suggestions. I’ll continue to upload the archived strips on the new page and see if it goes smoothly. I’ll also update the page as I continue to rebuild the webcomic from the ground up.
For the past few months I’ve been encountering troubleshooting issues with WordPress(.)com’s Panel theme, then again I’ve been having issues with WordPress(.)com in general of late. First of all, I had to deactivate ~Natively Awkward’s former page due to the mistake of “I shouldn’t have went with a domain purchase” seeing it kept the page in idle unless I paid up for the following year to keep it afloat. The alternative options I may have chosen would have exacerbated the problem instead of resolving it, therefore I made the ultimatum by pulling the plug altogether.
Despite creating a backup WP browser page, for some reason when I made various attempts to published the archived strips, the navigation buttons would be completely messed up. Or in this case, the first strip lacked any navigational options whereas the later strips would omit ‘NEXT’ altogether. (This also reflects on the arrow keyboard commands per strip.)
Then comes the browser site’s forums page which made matters worse due to the fact it seems to aim more towards the plugin than anything else which doesn’t make sense in some sense, if any. I have no idea what they’re talking about as far as permalinks and Jetpack go seeing I’m unable to find either on the Admin’s setting or whatever. And so on and so on.
At this point, I’m beginning to question whether I should continue using the WordPress browser for this and future comics projects if such frustrations persist in the future. It’s weird that it’s this particular theme I’m stressing with the most and if it continues then I may have to consider other possibilities where I’ll move the webcomic to next.
A July 2015 return may not come to be (or at least delayed for a bit) unless I find out any resolve over this. So, until next time…
