Hi everyone,

the extraction of the FanFiction.Net summary stoped working today.
I've fixed it with the new version 0.5.1

There's also a new, experimental feature in this version:
It'll display the story status (Complete/In Progress) on the first page of a downloaded story.
(onyl for stories downloaded from fanfiction.net, for every other page it displays "unknown").

There are two ways to 'enable' this feature:
1. delete the layout.html file in the fanfictiondownloader folder. A new one with the new option is created automaticalle with the next download.
2. Modify the layout.html file and playe %storystatus wherever you want this information displayed.

Hi Rai,

I found a possible bug in v0.5.1:
I'm using ePUBReader 1.4.1.1 with Firefox, and since updating to v0.5.1, the catalog of the reader shows the author as 'Unknown', although when looking at the metadata, it does list the author.
The previous versions of FanFictionDownloader did not have this problem and the reader hasn't been updated since using 0.5.0, hence the possible bug report.

Best regards,
Randy.

Rai,

Don't know if it helps or not, but in the file 'content.opf' I now find:

<dc:creator opf:file-as="Unknown" opf:role="aut">DisobedienceWriter</dc:creator>

whereas previously it would not contain 'opf:file-as':

<dc:creator opf:role="aut">fringeperson</dc:creator>

Best regards,
Randy

Hi rpmy2k,

sry that it took so long to answer.
FFDL only creates a html file and then calls callibre to convert it in your output format. It looks like the calibreteam changed something so that this problem occures for your reader software.
There are three ways for you to "fix" it:
1. use an onler version of calibre
2. try the newest version of calibre
3. ask the readerdeveloper to fix the problem

I can't help you since all I'm doing is using the calibreoption --authors=\""+ book->getAuthor() +"\" to submit this information.

Hi,

ok, technically it's not a new version. I've found a way to "fix" the pdf Problems - by writing my own conversion function.
That's the result: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/13474460/ffdl_exp.pdf

What do you think?

Far better than Calibre's built in version, but I'll stick to using HTML output as is my usual format.

Hi everyone,

it's been a long time, but here's the next test version: http://fanfictiondownloader.net/downloa ... .php?id=20

Nearly 50% of the code was changed, so please test if downloading, configuration, read from file.... is still working.
(The supported pages weren't changed, so no need to test this)

Changed code parts:
- Whole configuration/settings management
- 70% of the internal program communication
- Old download history was removed
- Old database code removed
- Internal structure of GUI elements changed

These changes were required in preparation for the "Download History" feature.
So if there are no bugs, then the next test version will include the new "Download History" to check if a story that you've downloaded in the past was updated by the author.
Thanks a lot to Serge for writing a new (and this time working) database class.

No promise, but (maybe) the "Download History" will be my (late) Christmas present to you.


Reminder: Send me an email if you are still waiting that I'm enabling your board account (at the moment there are 20-30 spam registrations per day)
