All credit for the idea and the development for the WebComic Template goes to Stonepaw. Thanks to cYo for inventing the WebComic format and making a wonderful software that helps us get these ideas. I am merely posting the template and have made this tutorial for the benefit of inexperienced users (like me ;) ) who find it difficult to make a WebComic from scratch.

A WebComic Template can be easily edited to make the WebComic of your choice, which you can read (with daily updates) from within ComicRack. Here we present you with the WebComic Template for Gocomics.com, a website that contains a large number of daily comics.

Here is what you need for this:

1. The latest version of ComicRack
2. The Gocomicstemplate.cbw file attached at the end of this article.
3. A working Internet connection

How to make your own WebComic in 7 easy steps:

1. Goto A-Z comic listing at Gocomics.com. From quite a large number of comics, choose the comic you want to create the Webcomic for. Click at the name of the comic. In this example, we choose "Red And Rover". A new page for that comic will open.

2. Now we will choose the date from which we want our WebComic to begin. For this right-click on the double-backward arrow icon near the date.
3. Click on "Copy link location". Now, we have the link for the beginning comic strip for our WebComic. The link can be easily changed manually to select any date from which we would like our WebComic to begin. e.g. change the date in the link from .../2003/01/01/ to .../2010/01/01/, and we'll get the comic from 2010 onwards.

4. Open the template GoComicsTemplate.cbw with any text editor you like. In this example we choose Notepad++. Your simple windows notepad will do as well. Replace the Image Url in the file with the link we copied in step 3.
5. To save the WebComic, goto File->Save as, and replace the name with that of your choice, in this case, Red And Rover.cbw
6. Don't forget to choose "All types" in the "Save as type" dialog of your text editor.

7. Your WebComic is ready. Double-click to open it with ComicRack, and enjoy !
