A Request

A story update (be it a chapter or an excuse) is due Friday.

In the meantime, if anyone has knowledge of building plugins for wordpress, I need a little help.

I don’t have the time right now to build, debug, and implement a plugin to allow for navigation within subpages. Basically, I have all the stories in an order using the “order” field based on their in-universe date (approximately). The page flipper needs to be aware of that, not the posting order or posting date. An “Up” link to return to the index (the parent page) as well as a “Next” and “Previous” link that remain in only the current sub-page are all I need.

It should take all of like an hour, but I seriously can’t allot the time at present. I can’t offer much compensation other than maybe finding a place somewhere for a cameo. Edit: Possible success! See comments.

… Which reminds me, someone at some point asked me if Tari might have any siblings. I don’t remember who asked, but the answer is ‘yes.’ She definitely has one older sister (kitsune mother, human father) who is an integral part of later chapters, and I’ve made a note in the same chapter introducing that sister that there is at least one more sibling running around out there that she met while looking over the remains of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The sibling was genderlessly referenced, although this universe assumes that less than 5% of kitsune are male. I’ve shied away from giving her mother the satisfaction of bearing a male offspring (status == ego and we just can’t give that bitch the lift) but if someone happens to write something about one and lets me know, I certainly don’t mind and may even work it into canon.

As far as I’m aware beyond that question, no one’s ever wanted to write anything even remotely in this universe or even referencing a character because I’m so terrible about maintaining it. I do have a mental set of rules I’m trying to personally stick to that I’ve somewhat managed to dictate into the iPod, including the full nature of why the immortals ‘are,’ but I’ve yet to translate my disassociated ramblings into a structured cheat sheet.

    I’m not familiar with programming WordPress plugins, but I’m tempted to try anyway. However, searching the WordPress plugin directory turned up ‘Next Page’ which might do about what you want:

    Interesting a new website layout?

    Playing with it some, yeah. Hadn’t meant to turn it on before I left for work because I wasn’t completely sure yet ^^

    @David: Thanks, I’ll try that out.
