I didn't know that was there either--I'll certainly try and populate it with the author url.

Thanks to both of you for pointing that out.

I've been using the FFDL web app for some time now and was very interested in this plug-in. However, I can't get it to work for me at all. Opening the app, clicking a menu, touching anything immediately shuts the plug-in down (along with Calibre). I posted in another forum earlier and was directed here. Here's part of the error. I've got more if you want. Any thoughts? I updated Calibre version and just DL'd plug-in update.

Thanks for your help.

@FFreader920 - Actually, I was trying to direct you up a level or two where the calibre devs (vs plugin devs) hang out. I don't know any more here than I did on the mail list, sorry.

No problem -- and thank you! I will head there.

@FFreader920 - Following Kovid's suggestion, I've made a version that keeps explicit references to the menu items. Please give the attached version a try and see if it solves your problem.

See the Plugin Intro thread if you need help manually installing it.

Wow -- so ... that absolutely worked! I just downloaded a couple of stories and updates. Thank you so much. It's like magic!

I'm glad we could get that sorted. I hope to put it out as the next official version later today.

FYI, v1.5.13 is out.

New site: archive.skyehawke.com plus a fix for FFreader920's crashing problem.

As usual, there may be a delay before calibre notices the new version. You can get the latest by going in and telling calibre to install it again.

It looks like fimfiction.net has undergone some changes again. When updating, I am losing the cover images on most of the stories. So far only one has kept itself after an update.

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/6975/ This one still works.

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/4843/ And this is an example of one that doesn't.

I noticed on one fic that the author included a source link beneath their image. I never seen this before, so maybe that has something to do with it?

http://www.fimfiction.net/story/19066/ Has a source link.

And last but not least, is there a better place that I should go for adapter-site issues? I don't want to clutter this thread with posts about issues if they would be better addressed elsewhere.

@jackr - The project user group is arguably a better place for adapter issues, as opposed to plugin specific issues. However, it's not always clear when an issue is plugin specific or not. If you found the problem using the plugin, I'm not likely to complain if you post it here.

This particular problem with fimfiction.net is happening because fimfiction.net is leaving off the 'http:' on story image URLs. IE, '//static.fimfiction.net/images/...' instead of 'http://static.fimfiction.net/images/...'. The browser are apparently prepared to live with this level of broken and fill in the 'http:'.

(http://www.fimfiction.net/story/6975/ only appears to work because there is a similar image in the first chapter that's being picked up for the cover.)

I've put a kludge in the adapter to deal with this and attached a beta version for you to try. I won't be able to put out an official version until Monday.

You could try reporting it as a problem to the site admins, but since they don't seem to think dates need the year...

Thanks, works perfectly so far . According to a post on their main page, fimfiction has undergone a server change and that there are some bugs to work out. I will post a comment on their site about that partial url issue.

Hi, I love this plugin and I just had one question. Is there a way to disable the confirmation box that pops up asking if you're an adult for the archive of our own archive? It's not so bad when I'm downloading one story but when I try to download five or six at a time it's not so much fun.

I'd appreciate any and all help,
thanks!
Amalthia

EDIT: Figured it out. Apparently I needed to remove the # sign from the url, username, password, and the adult:true line.

Fimfiction.net is down for maintenance by the looks of it. But I have found out that if I run an update on any stories that contain them, the plugin hangs and I have to force quit Calibre. I ran a test on a single fimfiction story and the time it takes to determine whether it can get the story is long; I counted 84 seconds that the plugin waits for to get a response.

The error code I get after the wait is this:
Quote:
<urlopen error [Errno 10060] A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond>
I am not sure if it will help any with the plugin, and thankfully sites are rarely down, but I am posting this in case it is something that can be tweaked so that the plugin doesn't hang on a story more than it has to.

@jackr - Because the server doesn't return a connection refused, the downloader has to first wait for the connection to time out. Then, to deal with slow & flakey servers, it sleeps a little while and tries again a couple times before really failing.

It's a trade off between failing quickly when it's really down and waiting & trying when it's just flakey. I'm inclined to leave it as it is.
