    Trying to view the comics from 6/30/2006, 7/3/2006, and 7/7/2006 (the road trip saga and one of the third grader entries, I believe) all result in the redirection error message.

    (I didn't check any of the "next" links! I assume they are broken on the same way on the same pages)

    Hello:

    I like your comic, but I'm tired of your "back" links not working. See:

    Here, on hitting "back" you get 2006/07/07 which is a redirect page:

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/07/10


    The correct link is:

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/07/09


    But wait, because /2006/07/08 is the same as /2006/07/09, and "news" in both pages brings you to 2006/07/07

    "back" on /2006/07/05 brings you incorrectly to /2006/07/03. Should be 2006/07/04. In the "04" page, "news" brings you to "03".

    "back" on 2006/07/04 brings you incorrectly to 2006/06/30. It should be 2006/0702. "news" link brings you to a redirect page.

    2006/07/01 and 2006/07/02 are the same page. "back" brings incorrectly to 2006/06/28. It should be 2006/06/29.

    2006/06/29 and 2006/06/28 are the same, and both "news" links bring you to 2006/06/28, which is a redirect.



    I think that the mechanism you use to upload things to the webpage is hopelessly broken and you should repair it. (*) I repair websites all day, and I don't want to play catch-that-dynamic-webpage-bug when I stop to browse online comics!

    Regards. Hope you solve so I can read your webcomic easier.


    (*) Or at least put some sanity check that warns you when something is broken. There are some older comics that also had broken links, but they were very sparse and I said nothing. Now it's several comics in a row. This footnote sign is not an asshole.

    (**) Sorry for such a lame username. It was the only that I could find not taken or disallowed. How can 43f43rf43werf34 be disallowed? Seriously, your register page hates me.

    This high res comic here is broken: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2002/01/06

    The Low Res version works, however.

    That's actually the right image for the comic, but I'll be damned if I can remember why.

    Pretty sure that's when they first started soliciting commercial advertising at PA.

    The next button for 10/29/2004 loops back onto itself, and the next strip, 10/31/2004 is missing both coming backwards from 11/03/2004 and coming in from the archive.

    The fruit fucker 2000 comic doesn't work:

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2002/02/11

    - it redirects to 2002/02/08; the image itself (http://www.penny-arcade.com/images/2002/20020211h.gif) is present though.

    I'm not getting a comic there and when I do "view image" I get this:

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/images/2005/20051114l

    Is this what the thread is for? Pointing things like that out? Every time I come across one like that I always think "I should tell them, it will be a pain to fix, but if it was me I would rather know" but only today did I think to register with the forum and find an appropriate topic.

    Some odds comics

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2002/01/01
    and
    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2003/01/01

    have the exact same strip.

    also,

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2002/12/27
    and
    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2002/12/28

    except different titles, so maybe a joke.

    Are the links messed up or are these the right comics?

    Also, i'm 80% sure that

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2003/01/06

    is a repeat of an older comic.

    It was up for a moment when I made the new comic thread, then disappeared, it will likely be back shortly.

    In the meantime, pipthefair rehosted it for everyone in the SE++ comic thread.

    I was able to find the rehosted comic on the forums, but the comic never went live on the PA website, as far as I can tell.

    The new comic (but not the newspost) is up for today, but if you go back to the previous comic, there is nothing there, still. Just fyi. :P

    It seems to be working fine for me.

    Do you get a "broken image" link? Can you right-click on that and go to properties to see what URL it gives you?

    If not, can you view-source on the page and look for a URL that contains 20070629.jpg?

    Is the URL the same as this, and does this direct URL work for you?

    That URL works for me, Ramius. I can also see the comic normally, by pressing "Back" from today's comic. I haven't checked it since the day it was first posted though.
