alright..i want to host a webcomic called SPACE DISASTER X on tumblr, but the problem is that most tumblr themes host them from newest to oldest. there are certain ways to do this using tag, but its very complicated and inconvenient, and i would much rather have it done through code.

 

here is the theme i'll be working with, http://www.tumblr.com/theme/9601 and i'd like to know whether or not anyone could help me and put something together for this

I've actually developed an entire theme so I'm familiar with the tumblr theme code. if you want to I can help you with this.

I'm a little puzzled though, isn't newest first what you want? as in: when they visit your page, they see the latest panel, and those who want to go back in history can use the nav buttons. (might be nice to put in regular first/previous/next/latest buttons.) that's how most webcomics do it I believe.

hmm....well..you've got a good point there, i never thought of it that way

....HMMMMM... i was thinking, that new people would automatically see the oldest post first and then you'd start out, but i suppose you ARE right, a lot of webcomics do it the opposite way and if youre new you just redirect yourself to the start........

It's best to just use traditional webcomic hosting and repost updates or thumbnails of updates to tumblr. That's what most the webcomic authors I know tend to do.

what's traditional webcomic hosting, though? I don't know of any webcomic platform. maybe I should build one.....
