I've been excited about the different changes that have been made to this plugin, especially the replace metadata and the ability to include the extra metadata that some sites have. I'm finally at the point that I am ready to start playing with these features.

First I'm trying to use the replace metadata feature to fix a problem that I have had since I started using FFDL. Two different characters from different fandoms use the same name in FFN, Supernatural's Sam W. (Sam Winchester) and Transformers' Sam W. (Sam Witwicky). I was hoping to use the replace metadata so that I don't have to do a manual replace everytime I downloaded a story with either of those characters.

However, I cannot seem to get the replace feature to work.

Some of the different code I tried using include (although it is not shown, there is a space at the beginning of the last line of code for each example):

replace_metadata:
category=>Transformers=>characters=>Sam W\.=>Sam Witwicky

Spoiler:
[http://www.fanfiction.net/]
replace_metadata:
characters=>Sam W\.=>Sam Witwicky

Spoiler:
[http://www.fanfiction.net/]
replace_metadata:
Sam W\.=>Sam Witwicky


I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but I cannot get Sam W. to change to Sam Witwicky.
