Comic Archive move is complete!

I finally finished moving the full comic archive into the Comicpress system!
The comic posted-on dates aren't very accurate (a compromise between hacking Comicpress' one-comic-per-day code and having a one-strip-per-archive-page archive) but the content is all there.

As a bonus, the story is now broken up into discrete chunks - it should make moving around a lot easier. I still need to go through and update in-strip quick links, but that's not a priority at the moment. I figure I'll update those as I find them/find the time.

I have a few projects that need to be completed first, but my next goal with regards to the archive is to finally get some decent character bios put together. Having the comics in the new archive was a necessary first step.

The question now is do I go the full wiki route (like Legostargalactica) or opt for a series of wordpress articles that I could update from time to time.

Something for me to think about, anyway.

I don't think it's working for me. I'm trying to use the tab on the right of the comic page to jump to a story arc, but nothing happens for me.

Just for the record, when the website loads for me, I get an Error on Page message on the bottom feedback bar. And I'm on Internet Explorer

@andrew: Thanks for the heads up. Not sure what's going on there - it works just fine in Firefox. I'm going to create a stand-alone archive page tomorrow to speed up site performance - that'll fix the jump problem.

And, from what I can tell, the script error in IE is being caused by the current H&R Block ad that's in heavy rotation right now (due to taxes being due tomorrow...). But I'll keep an eye on things.
