I've looked at the tutorial, but I can't get my head around exactly what I need to do to make an auto-updating Order of the Stick. If someone could do that, I'd be extremely grateful.

It seems fairly straightforward, as the comics are numbered in simple sequential order, but I don't know what to put where. The comic can be found at: www.giantitp.com/comics/oots.html


Thanks for any help.

I noticed that it stopped updating after #357...any idea why? The comic itself is up to 789.

EDIT: I figured out why. The name of the images changed from the simple oots0001.gif format to a hash of some sort - www.giantitp.com/comics/images/nU34Pta1TVuAxkQ1PMS.gif for #789, for instance. I'm not sure how to fix the problem, but I thought I'd at least inform you of why the script broke after 357 - the naming convention changed in 358.

Just wanted to give this a bump so someone might drop in and see what can be done about fixing the OotS cbw.

I asked a friend to take a look, and all that was necessary was the removal of oots in the filename - now it is updated through 790 (current). I'll send damocles a PM about it.

Well, either yours or mine loads up and works fine, so there doesn't seem to be any meaningful difference. Thanks for writing it, though - it's up to damocles which makes it in the topic, I guess.

Skewered testicles. Didn't expect that. Probably should use yours as it still has all that fancy metadata. Should probably start using it myself.
