Twokinds Website Update

#1 Post by Turaiel »

Hi all!

Today we released an update to the Twokinds website, primarily regarding theming. Note that you may need to hard reload the website for everything to work correctly (Ctrl+Shift+R/Ctrl+F5 on Windows, Cmd-shift-R on macOS).

It features the following changes:
  • The "Lights On/Off" button is now the "Theme" button. By default the website theme will now conform to your system-wide light/dark theme preference on your computer. You can override this by choosing your desired theme with the button. Note that the button no longer appears if you do not have JavaScript enabled.
  • Minor tweaks were made to the comic navigation buttons. When using a mobile browser, these buttons are now larger to make it easier to tap them.
  • JavaScript is no longer required to view the fanart and archive pages. However, these pages will load more slowly since the page will not be able to lazy load the large number of images.
  • Features which require JavaScript such as themes, keyboard comic navigation, and the embed popup on the links page, will no longer appear if JavaScript is disabled.
  • Twokinds now supports and defaults to HTTPS.
Please reply to this thread if you encounter any issues with the website over the next few days.

Enjoy!

That seems to have fixed images, from twokinds cdn, not showing in some threads.

Thanks!

Apparently I noticed it mid-update. Always good to know I was just paranoid.

I'm liking the larger buttons on mobile, quite helpful.

The Themes button doesn't appear for me on computer, nor does the twitter feed, even after CTRL-F5, in Firefox or chrome.

Sorry, browsers of that age are no longer supported. A minimum Firefox version of 50 or Chrome version of 51 are required. The latest version of Firefox for Windows XP is 52, which is supported.

I hate updating things...
