Altermeta's Easter eggs! [UPDATED 4-26-07]
« on: April 26, 2007, 08:43:48 PM »
Some of you may have heard of the easter eggs associated with Altermeta's site.  There are many little features I put in the script that never made it into the final release, or were never enabled on the site.  However, by adding something to the url, you can have these features enabled.

Here's how you do it:
if the url has nothing after the file name, add ? the arguement, = and then the variable.
for example, if you want to use the button feature to change the navigation buttons:
Code: [Select]
http://altermeta.net/archive.php

becomes

http://altermeta.net/archive.php?button=sasha

now, if there is already a ? and an arguement on the url, use a & instead
for example, say you're in the middle of the archive and you find that you've reached chapter 1, but you still want to use the CC buttons, you can change the url like so...
Code: [Select]
http://altermeta.net/archive.php?comic=7

becomes

http://altermeta.net/archive.php?comic=7&button=sasha
if you want to add even more arguements, just use & and follow the same pattern.
The following is a list of "hidden" or semi-hidden feautes on the site:
  1. view - Navigational features of the site
    • horz_thumb - shows the comic thumbnails for the current chapter in a scrolling box below the comic (currently has a bug so it doesn't work correctly)
    • thumb_page - shows all the comics in a single page sorted by chapter (you can also see this by clicking the "archives" link on the left of any page on the main site
    • showfiller - This will turn on the filler comics when you're browsing through the site. By default, this feature is turned off (except when going to the main archive page)
  2. tagview - Tagging options
    • list - Shows all the tags that have been given to a particular comic. clicking these tags will show other comics given the same tag
  3. button - Navigation button options
    • cc - shows the CC button set
    • sasha - shows the Sasha button set

Ask Caz :)
I'm not the one drawing them, though if you want to.... you can feel free to request as many ideas for buttons as you want.
