[edit] First and last?

How about adding links to 1 and LATESTCOMIC (with graphics matching xkcd's |> and <| perhaps)? J-beda (talk) 13:11, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Imagesize

Can we kill imagesize, please? We almost never use it, and we have alternatives, like using the smaller "thumbnails" that you click through on the xkcd site as the images that we store. It'll let us link the image to the xkcd site too. Davidy22(talk) 01:29, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Have faith that eventually the image bug will be resolved! It probably won't but we can all dream. lcarsos_a (talk) 02:27, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
I just had a massive brainwave. We don't actually need to include imagesize if we're going to leave it empty. Since it's a named option we can specify any order of options, and omit those we don't need to use. I'm going to edit {{create}} (if I can figure it out to not include imagesize so it will just be an advanced user's option. Hopefully that will make you smile, in these dull days of spam fighting. lcarsos_a (talk) 22:15, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Radiation et al

I had some spare time today so I went and made a modified version of this template that can handle undefined numbers such as in Radiation. Only catch is that it needs two other variables to be defined to keep the link valid... But I think that's a fair compromise to take another page off the incomplete explanations category. It could also allow for the addition of pages about the not-so-subtle jokes etc. in the what if series. The updated versions are over at a page in my userspace and its talk page.

[edit] Broken?

On unnumbered comics, this template displays "[[Expression error: Unrecognised punctuation character "{".|Next >]]". Forrest (talk)07:54, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

A user someplace made a workaround in a seperate template. I'll find it later. Davidy²²[talk] 08:03, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
 Done - It was because 0 was created, so the logic that #ifexist:0 should be false failed. I changed it to default to -2 when number is not present, which will work as long as no one creates -1! Mark Hurd (talk) 11:13, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Use https?

XKCD has supported https for a while, it might be a good idea to switch the generated links to https.

Done. Davidy²²[talk] 18:00, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
