@jackr - Accept-Encoding=gzip is an HTTP protocol parameter used down inside the system when it's getting web pages from sites. It's an internal thing that you don't need to worry about.
Missing fimfic stories now handled correctly. It still errors, but at least it's a StoryDoesNotExist error now.
Wow--password per story? That's a new one. I did not know fimfic did that. I've tried to implement it using the user/pass mechanism. If it doesn't work, can you give me a story and it's password? That would help (PM would be fine).
Ah. Oops. The datePublished error is a mistake--the 'fix' for empty stories broke stories with an earlier start date. My bad. Wait, no it didn't--it revealed another, different bug. So, yay, I guess?
As for http://www.fimfiction.net/story/5947/
, not sure what to say--it still works for me. I suggest doing an 'Overwrite always' on that one and see if that works. Or an 'Add New', if you're paranoid.
v1.5.4 is up on the original beta post.
Thanks for your help figuring these out.
