We changed to the wordpress 3.0 system a little while back, but it’s taken me a bit to convert everything to the Custom Post Type system.

Everything should be fine – working better, in fact! – though a couple books that were on both the DC list and Wildstorm list lost some character tagging info – I’ll have to re-tag them.

The lists that have been updated are:

DC Universe and all related reading orders – this one is the one it took a while to finish!

Wildstorm Universe

Marvel Universe

America’s Best Comics

Self Contained

Unplaced Books (all the ones on here are DC books, so they’ve all been changed to DC post type. )

There are a few known issues with the system. For one, the filtering code I had been using doesn’t seem to recognize custom post types. I’m going to try and fix it, but if it doesn’t work I’ll just take it off the sidebar. It’s a shame.

Second, while I fixed the issue where the reading order pages weren’t displaying in the right layout, I still can’t figure out why it says “nothing found for so and so” in the title bar, as if it wasn’t finding any posts when loading the page. Very frustrating. I’ve asked again at the wordpress forums about this, hopefully someone will be able to help us out.

This is a big change, in terms of functionality, so let me know if anything is broken! Thanks guys!

So I haven’t been keeping a close enough watch on the whole First Wave thing, but that Batman/Spirit team up a while back pretty firmly placed The Spirit in the DCU, right? I haven’t actually read it yet (do I look like the kind of guy that actually reads this trash? Come on!) but that’s what I’ve heard.

And now that a new trade with his recent ongoing is solicited, this would be a reasonable time to add in all The Spirit archives? I mean, if we have the Action Heroes Archives and the like for characters that are later in the DCU, The Spirit ones make sense too, right?

I have a feeling that if the THUNDER agency.. or thunder cats. Or whatever those guys were called… well, if they show up in the DCU soon I’m gonna have to add them in too. Work work work. Let’s hope that I don’t have to add in Elfquest. I’d like to be done adding in books soon!

I changed the profile link to say “Edit General Profile” and added one to edit your Forum Profile.

I’m gonna do some more changes later tonight, I think, and see if I can’t get My Wishlist up.

Check it out here.

You know this means I’ll be busy tonight! I’ve got some of these in the database already, I think, but I’ve got to check over it. :D

I created a forum to chat about the Collection feature, share our collections, ask questions, etc.

I also synced the previous blog post to a thread there, to start it off.
