@JimmXinu - Thanks for the quick response! I'm still new to using FFDL and testing out it's abilities. I do appreciate all the work put in to maintain stable and consistent outputs.

Here's a shorter story with what I'm looking at, when authors have short quotes at the start of a story that is either centered or right aligned.
Example: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9228136/1/The-Keyhole

Jimmi, I've run into a slight problem. It may be a problem with my ereader, and if it is, I'll take it up with them, but I wondered if it wasn't something in the css or something here. I'm mentioning it because it might affect others. I have an android tablet, and I use fbReader to read my fics on it. I download them through the OPDML library in Calibre when I want one that's not already on the tablet, or has been updated. One of my friends has written an amazing series (found at http://archiveofourown.org/series/9905 ) and I wanted to catch up with it. So, I downloaded it onto my fbReader. It seemed to download, but only took a very short time to do so. Come to find out, it only downloaded the first book in the anthology epub. So, I don't know if that's fbReader, FFDL, or some weird mix of the two. I'll notify them, too, just in case it's on their end.
Thanks.
SARA

I have a quick question. I apologize if it's already been asked and answered. I tried searching through this thread and couldn't find my answer, but I may have missed it.

When I download from AO3, I get a lot of unnecessary tags. That's not the plug-in's fault, I know. Some people just like to tag, I guess. Can I set the plug-in to only download certain tags? Thanks!

Edit: Had some time so I did an internet search and found the answer to this. Sorry to have bothered you!

Also, I've managed to tweak this so it helps Calibre do everything I want it to do. Excellent plug-in!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one annoyed by the extra tags. I guess I worked too long in a library to tag something with extraneous stuffs. Heh. (I know it's a personal problem).

So much for my quick response--the forum didn't notify me about new posts for the last several days. Sorry about that.

Attached is a version that adds a feature to let you keep the style attributes on tags. That retains the centering for story you linked.

You need to turn it on by adding a parameter to your FFDL personal.ini tab:
Code:
[defaults]
keep_style_attr:true
...after you've installed the attached version, of course. If you need help with that, refer to the Introduction to plugins thread.

UPDATE Remove obsolete beta versions

I'm not familiar with "OPDML library". FFDL is able to download that series fine for me, so I assume you have some other problem.

Glad you found a solution already. And I'm glad you like FFDL.

@doudda - Most of us use a custom 'Comma separated text, like tags, shown in the tab browser'-type column to hold that and it works fine.

Why do you think it should be separated with & instead?

Aside from forum error, I think this is pretty fast work for a request so no apologies needed . I'm really liking the ability to customize information and style of the output.

The plugin you attached works perfectly with a few other stories on FFnet I tested! Thank you!!

I may have the letters wrong. I'm sorry. It's when you've got the content server running and download it to another device from your hard drive through that. FBReader calls it that, I think. Anyway, it's part of FBReader, so it may be on their end.

Any chance you could provide a link me to what you found to help you with this? I would be very interested in learning.

I've been off boards for a while, but still happily using this excellent plugin!

Just wondering if the following site could be supported?
http://meryton.com/aha/index.php?showforum=5
It is a Jane Austen fanfic site.

Thanks.

You can't see that without an account. I tried to register for an account, but haven't heard anything back and now it says 'Username or password incorrect' instead of 'you don't have permission'. So I think my req was denied.

Even then, that looks like a forum rather than a dedicated fiction site.

So, odds are against it getting supported.
