Whats good everyone mynicca1.png

 

First off I want to apologize for the delay, this version was supposed to come about roughly 3 months ago, but my PC crashed on me and it took a while to rebuild (Spent a few months without a PC). But I'm all good now on that front.

 

One benefit of the delay is that it gave me more time to look into what else I can add onto the reader outside of what was suggested in the last thread, and I came up with a few things, some of which I threw into this version.

 

Feel free to check out the new reader here: https://onemangaforums.com/reader/

 

 

Now here's the breakdown of the list of improvements made to the reader so far!

 

 

General Layout

 

  • Changed the size of the manga titles throughout the site as per @Zeando 's suggestion. At first I was kinda against it but I realised that they were indeed a bit too big, and that it wouldn't hurt to be able to fit more on the page (Especially in the search page). So after messing around a bit I made them smaller, fitting six titles on a row instead of 4:
    Spoiler
  • Got rid of the "Submit" page for now, since it's not really needed right now. Also renamed the "Browse" page to "Search"
  • Corrected any spelling errors.

 

Manga search form

 

Spoiler New manga search form
  • The "Author" and "Artist" fields are no longer separate. The "Author" field now accepts either the manga's author or artist name. The "Artist" form field has been removed.
  • You can now include/exclude manga based on genre by clicking the check boxes, changing their appearance. A checked box will include manga that are in that genre in the search results, a box with the will exclude manga in that genre from the search results.
  • You can now search for manga that have been released on, before or after a specified year.
  • A "Type" field has added to the form. So now you can search for manga, manhwa, 4koma etc specifically.
  • You can now sort results by "Title", "Rating", "Favorites", "Date Uploaded" and "Year Released", in ascending or descending order. Note that the sort criteria will be reflected in the list of manga results (Manga sorted by favorites will display the amount of favorites they have, manga sorted by date will display the date uploaded and so on)
  • A small tool-tip describing the genre will be displayed when the user hover's their mouse over a genre's checkbox.

 

Reader layout

 

Spoiler Advanced reader (The default reader)

Spoiler Basic reader

 

  • A new reader mode, "basic reader" has been added. When in this mode, the user can read the manga chapter by scrolling vertically. The reader uses infinite scrolling, so it loads the next page when you reach the bottom of the previous page. The reader menu at the top tells you which page in the chapter you are currently reading
  • A small menu bar has been added above the reader. The first button allows you to switch between the basic and advanced reader modes on the page. The last two buttons allow you to share the current manga chapter's URL on facebook and twitter respectively.
  • A few subtle visual cues have been added to the advanced reader. The respective page navigation arrows will grey out when the user is at the end or start of a chapter.

A few keyboard shortcuts have been added to the reader page as well:

 

Keyboard shortcuts for advanced reader
  • Left Arrow – Previous page
  • Right Arrow – Next page
  • Alt + T – toggle thumbnail list

 

Key shortcut for reader page
  • Alt + R – swaps readers
 
Favorites Page
 
Spoiler New Favorites page
 
As per @DarkNemesis ' suggestion, Now you can see a list of manga that you have faved on the site. You can also remove any manga from this list and you will effectively unfav that manga as well. Pretty straight forward. :D
 
 
Manga reading history
 
The reader is now able to keep track of what manga you've read. You can see the list of manga you've read in the History page. You can also delete manga from your reading history on this page as well.
 
Spoiler

Also, the last 12 manga that you have read will appear on the home page, so that you can pick up where you left off quickly when you visit the site again.
 
Spoiler

And that's it for version 2! Feel free to give me any feedback, suggestions etc, so we can figure out where to go from here aqDwC.png
 
**Ahem** and now for the god-like tag youngsabu.png

This is amazing! 

 

I love the fact that you added a vertical reader. After being exposed to Kissmanga's layout of just scrolling down to the next page, I can't stand other sites where you have to wait for the page to load. 

 

Also loving the fact that you included a Favorites page.

There's no deadline, so let creativity shine!

 

I really like it! Very detailed! As far as function and easy-to-use-ness go it's pretty much perfect. It's like someone holds you by the hand and tells you ''this is how you use this page''. Very convenient and easy!

 

I didn't know adult and mature are different genres. O_O

 

Personal preference though: if you can make the background also black the it's better. Orange words on white is not good for my eyes :P

Yeah, I didn't know so many folks preferred the vertical scrolling reader to be honest. Oh well now you can easily swap between reader layouts at will mynicca1.png

Hahah true. And glad you find it easy to use, that what I was going for with the design. :D

 

Hm, I'll look into what other color schemes I could work with. For the most part I wanted to keep the traditional OMF colors of red/black throughout the site.

 

Can I call you master? This is freakin awesome!

Hahah do you walk the same path of a web developer as well? mynicca1.png

 

and lol my bad, I just stole one of Nike's most recent list of user tags from the Clubhouse and threw in a few people. I'll remember you next time :P

For the record I actually did...https://onemangaforu...-group-watch-3/

In fact I always do as you're one of the few people who don't outright ignore my clubhouse invitations. Normally I would mess with JoE here but I can actually see why he missed that so I'll let him slide today.

What's good folks, small update mynicca1.png

 

Made a few changes to the image slider on the home page. I figured that it looked a little bland, so I decided to spice it up a bit.

Hope yall like it  :^_^:

This is awesome, when are we adding it to the forums tab tho? It would be great to make everyone actually read from there.

PS: An app for the reader would be really awesome too.

Well we may have to add it when we start putting content on there. The stuff there now are just placeholders to help flesh out the layout. According to Greg the mangas hosted will have the owner's permission to be put there. 

 

A phone app is def something I'd do in the future, but let's get the reader off the ground first :D
