ANy Methode used to update or get nee book --> same result:
For example: Get Book using URL:

Hit OK
Shows: Fetching Metadat for Download
Shows: Starting 1 Fan Fiction down Load
Shows: FFDL found 1 good and 0
Shows: Proceed with Updating your library?
Hit Yes

Shows Update Calibre for FanFiction stories (No response)
Nothing happens--> Manually stop Programm (Hitting red X)
Calibre Crash
Shows Book in Library --> But only Metadata file
No epub file available

However using the settings Output format TXT everything works (all differnt methods of updaing or adding new books with FFDL

Using all over formats (Mobi, htlm epub) System does as shown in txt and Calibre has to be crashed manually to continue!

Please Help

FFDL supports 80+ sites which collectively have millions of stories. It's possible you've managed to find one, or a few stories that break FFDL in new and exciting ways. It's happened before, which is why I ask the problem reports always include story URL(s).

Without more information, all I have to give you are guesses. What you've told me suggests that FFDL finished downloading and hung trying to update the library, but I can't prove that without the debug output.

Guesses:
  1. Have you filled up your library disk?
  2. Have you created a large number of custom columns? (>5)
  3. Do you have a very large library? (>3000)
  4. Have you done extensive customize in the FFDL personal.ini config?

So is it yes or is it no?

If yes, if you send me a copy of your personal.ini (remove any passwords), that may help.

Other than that, I cannot help you anymore until you run calibre in debug and send me the debug output as I've previously suggested.

Hi, I was just wondering if there was any way to make FFDL recognize font colors when downloading. For instance, this chapter of a story (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/1014...-meat-is-magic) has yellow text in it, and when I download the EPUB from the site directly (http://www.fimfiction.net/download_e...p?story=101408), the yellow text stays. When I use FFDL to download it, the yellow text loses its formatting/color and becomes normal text. I looked through the settings and personal.ini options but couldn't find anything regarding font colors; is there a setting for this that I'm missing?

Actually, there is a new feature to do that. I haven't released it yet because I was waiting for a response from the original requester and then forgot about it. See this post to get the test version and what param to set.

Thanks again for your work and attention.

The attached test version adds site-specific metadata for 'read' and 'reviews' for grangerenchanted.com and dramione.org. Be default, site-specific metadata doesn't go anywhere. You'll need to add them to the title page or populate in custom columns from personal.ini.

UPDATE Jun 5, 2013 - Remove obsolete beta versions

Hi! I've finally reached a point in my fanfic update to use the Anthology feature.
But every time I use a series url (ex:http://archiveofourown.org/series/2904 ) I get a ValueError: invalid literal for float(): 79 55.
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\proceed.py", line 118, in do_ask_question
  File "calibre_plugins.fanfictiondownloader_plugin.ffdl_plugin", line 1210, in do_download_merge_update
  File "calibre_plugins.fanfictiondownloader_plugin.ffdl_plugin", line 1025, in update_books_loop
  File "calibre_plugins.fanfictiondownloader_plugin.ffdl_plugin", line 1401, in update_metadata
  File "site-packages\calibre\library\custom_columns.py", line 512, in set_custom
  File "site-packages\calibre\library\custom_columns.py", line 531, in _set_custom
  File "site-packages\calibre\library\custom_columns.py", line 175, in adapt_number
ValueError: invalid literal for float(): 79 55
The anthology seems fine, with all stories, but I haven't had the time to check everything.
Is this something I should worry about? Or is it something to do with metadata and custom columns?

Thanks again for your work and attention.
