Have been following the various web comic versions that are being created with interest.

I've been trying the get the following working for The Phantom, one of my long standing comic favorites.

It seems to me it should be very similar to the ones developed on comic.com ... but, can't figure it out.

Here I've used the Toronto Star as the source site, however same is available from a number of smaller newspaper sites.

As always, appreciate any help.

Cheers,
Kevin

I have been trying for quite sometime, but have not yet been successful in making it work. Here is the latest code I (unsuccessfully) tried:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<WebComic xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <Images>
    <Image Url="?http://www.oregonlive.com/comics-kingdom/?feature_id=Phantom&amp;feature_date=2010-03-25">
      <Parts>
        <Part>src="(?&lt;link&gt;http://.content\.comicskingdom\.net/Phantom/.Phantom.\d*?\_large.gif)" border="\d*?" alt=</Part>
		<Part>Link_Next: '(?&lt;link&gt;/?feature_id=Phantom&amp;feature_date=\d*?-\d*?-\d*?)'</Part>
      </Parts>
    </Image>
  </Images>
</WebComic>

I'll keep on trying. However, lets hope some of the official developers gets a little time for this.

:) Let me call one of my superheroes!! Stonepaw, where are you ? we need you... please help



Edit: 3 hours later and no luck. Another failed attempt:

Here I am :laugh:

I took a look at the website and it doesn't look like it's possible. The site generates the comics automatically with javascript so it is impossible to scrape the links using RegEx as the links are not actually in the source of the page.

Sorry :(

Hey Stonepaw, now that we have 0.9.120 up, will it be possible to make the Phantom webcomic, or even better, a template for comicskingdom.net ?

Sorry for the necro, but what does that patch note mean? I can use a regex to search another regex result? If so, what other functionality isn't shown on the wiki page?
