Dc comic pages messed up

Rick Van Wijk 3 years ago • updated by Domenico Vaccaro 6 months ago 6

First of all i would like to say that the program works fine as it is but it seems some comics are messed up when it comes down to the page ordering. The comics are fine when opened in other programs but it seems the web browser changes the ordering so reading the comics is not really working.


The comics are in cbr format.


Thank you!

My guess is that some of your comics contain badly named files.

If you open one of the "messed up" CBR with an archive tool (Winrar, 7-zip...), you'll probably find files named like that:


page-1.jpg

page-2.jpg

...

page-10.jpg

page-11.jpg


But Ubooquity sorts them alphabetically, so it will serve them in this order:


page-1.jpg

page-10.jpg

page-11.jpg

page-2.jpg


I'll probably try to implement natural sort order for comic pages at some point in the future.


If you problem is not caused by file names, let meknow so that we can investigate further.

Hello there Thom,


I've checked the file with Winrar and indeed the files are sorted like your example.


The file i'm testing is using the following order:


1.jpg

2.jpg

...

31.jpg


and page 31 comes right after the second page within the reader.


And idea how i can sort it out so it displays the comic correctly?


Thank you!


Rick.

The fix consist in renaming the image so that they are properly sorted.

It's done by adding zeros in front of the numbers: 01, 02, 03 instead of 1, 2, 3.


But it's quite tiresome. You could also wait for me to implement the new sorting method in Ubooquity (be you'll have to be patient).

Hi,

I have the same "issue", did you implement the new sort method ?

When I'm facing this "issue" I easily fix it using ComicRack re-converting the file in CBZ (Export Book->Convert CBZ). CR will rename the pics files in the proper way. 

I hope this workaround help you as well.
