Hello again. Your friendly authoress here.
I was asked to sit up for a while tonight, and ended up getting waaaay too distracted doing site updates. The long and the short of it is that the stories should have a somewhat more friendly archive layout! I took the archive listing out of the sidebar for Midnight Moonlight and moved it up into the top menu. Each archive page now consists of a link to each individual chapter in a given book, along with a brief excerpt from the beginning of that chapter. The listing will start from the first chapter and go forward to the last — rather than the default wordpress system of ‘newest posts on top’ that would try to put the last chapter at the top and then count backwards to the first. Even better, they’re all on one page (like a real table of contents!) — and the best part is, the archive pages are generated and updated automatically by word press now that I’ve updated their template file. All I have to do is include the appropriate category tag on any given new chapter, and it’ll show up in the archives listings.
Hopefully that should make it a lot easier for anyone who only pops on every once in a while to find where they left off in the archive.
I’m kind of tempted to go through and give tags this same update, and then go through and tag all of the characters in each chapter. I think it would be kinda neat to be able to rapidly look up all the chapters that a given character shows up in — and if nothing else, it would be darn useful for me sometimes, haha.
Anyway, I guess that’s all for tonight — oh, wait: I also hid the voting incentives behind a collapsible bit, to further reduce the amount of sidebar clutter. Now that’s all.
Not that it’s anything really extraordinary, but still: I had fun, anyway. XD
Thanks, and take care everyone. I really need to go to bed now.
