Fun & Games - Foxtrot Now

Description: Foxtrot Now gets todays Foxtrot comic by Bill Amend from centerclick.org/ft/.

This version 1 is just the basic comic because I don't really know javascript. So don't critisive unless you are willing and able to help.

I like centerclick because they have archives of Foxtrot dating back to 1996!

Exactly what I was looking for (and too lazy to create myself)!!! It shouldn't be that difficult to add a popup menu to select previous comics. Ally you do is string together the value of each element, like so: (i don't know how it will turn out)

picky = define a variable to get the image id
picky.src="http://centerclick.org/ft/archive-in-gif/ft-" + form1.value + form2.value........................;

This would be great with a small frame. Rip (not cleanly) a foxtrot comic (or any comic really) out of a newspaper and scan it. Then delete the comic in Photoshop and have the daily foxtrot appear over top.

Thanks for the props!

i like it very much! however it's not reloading every day, i don't know if it is supposed to. would be nice if it did, as opposed to having to drag a new instance to see the new cartoon.

Had the same problem with the widget not reloading the new strip for the next day. And no apparent way to resolve this issue.
