    well i think they should start catgorising the links now since theres sooo many
    into genres like Comedy, Mecha and such. that might a nice idea to help decide wat they want to read

    The links are 76KB of data, which is excessive. It can be cut down, as it currently is, to about 56KB really easily through some trivial use of CSS to set link colours instead of the <font> tag. It'd take some use of mod_rewrite or redirects to make it work from every page, but switching the links to relative URLs drops the size down to 60KB (without the CSSification), and changing the directory to /manga/ instead of /manga-series/ gets us down to 56KB. Combining both techniques (URL shortening and CSSification) gets us down to 40KB, almost half of what we started with, and that's before any creativity comes into play.

    Yeah, we do need to recode it. The entire backend needs updating. Just one of the many things still on our to-do list.

    Hey Kane, is there any way you can link weather the links are shown or hidden to the account?
    Trying to view ST at 800x600 on a (library) computer that doesn't accept cookies, is a pain in the ass.

    This might actually be a better idea than what I am using now. I will take a look more into getting it coded next week.

    I should note that I double-checked the way href anchors work and it turns out that a simple root-relative target would do the trick, no need for mod_rewrite or anything fancy. Looks like it's just a matter of finding where it all gets generated and making the basic changes.
