    I was catching up with Duke's Daughter but uhhh I seem to miss some things while reading it at Asian Hobbyist. Maybe I'm just too stupid to navigate it since the chapters were cut in half by pages. Thing is, I can't seem to access the 2nd half. There was no "next page button". Only "next chapter". :blobpeek::blobsob:
    I tried searching, going back and forth each chapter but I do feel some conversations were missed. Checking the site for any next page button but I can't locate it. :blobdizzy:

    I am using mobile btw. Haven't encountered this scenario before... To some people, this may be a very very dumb question so my apologies in advance. :blobtired::blobtired: Help is absolutely appreciated. :aww:

    Each page has a certain words count I think.
    So, since some chapters are smaller, they are under the words count and are not cut into multiple pages.

    So if you don't see a "Next Page" button, and just a "Nex Chapter", it means that the chapter has not been cut into multiple pages.

    Site owner needs to be slapped upside the head for the various non-user-friendly features on his site. :blobtriumph:

    Apparently there's a block in the middle of the page with "Continue reading"

    [​IMG]

    Right above the Previous Chapter and/or Next Chapter near the bottom.

    Edit: It is hard to see, the linking text is closer to a lighter shade of grey.

    Or maybe that certain chapter is just short, so there's no next page

    I do see that when I open the chapter from a link but not when I click next chapter.
    I do notice that in the chapter, there is an announcement that the chapter is split in 2 pages but I can't seem to find the next page button which was present in some chapters.

    Might be. But it doesn't explain why certain conversations or train of thought suddenly jump from Venus to Mars or that a certain name was mentioned out of blue as if that person was talked about from the last page I was reading. It seemed weird. Maybe I will try opening it through PC instead of mobile.

    Its pretty annoying since it is automated. I could click publish before it generates but then you end up with a plain text which takes a few seconds to become a link and then you have this
    Reader: There is no link
    Me: There is..
    Reader: There really is no link
    Me: There really is a link..

    Then I upload a screenshot

    I don't win either way
    So I am giving up

    My sentiments exactly. Where the hell is the asshole? :blobhero:

    The author of Duke's Daughter can go off a tangent sometimes and tease readers.
    Most chapters are single pages recently since it is more like side stories focusing on side characters

    normally there’ll be a next page button. But on mobile it doesn’t appear occasionally.
    When you go further downwards, you can see these really small numbers. Like 1234 etc
    These are the pages, if you click on those you can go to the next page.

    If you don’t see those numbers (links) then there isn’t a next page.

    Is self violence okay or not, it seems he is searching for the site owner to slap himself upside the head ? :blobpats:
    After all, seach of oneself could be quite profound and philosophical or as simple as just running in circle with a nailed baseball bat if you are just angry about yourself and want to give this asshole what he deserve, it just depend on your level of self loathing... :blobninja:
