A while ago you got a request to support this site:

http://meryton.com/aha/index.php?showforum=47
(this is the link directly to the forum that holds the completed fanfics)

But since it was password protected and a forum-based fanfic site, you declined. I was wondering if you would reconsider, based on the following information:

bugmenot has this common username/password combo
JAReader/loveausten

Yes, it is a forum, but authors create their own locked topics, where they post a chapter at a time. No one other than the author is allowed to post on this topic. There is a TON of Jane Austen fanfic there that is nowhere else. Currently, the only way to get it on my kindle in any kind of reasonably formatted way, is to copy and paste into word, and try and search and replace all the extra crap that the 'copy' lifted from the page.

Given this, would you take another look at supporting this site as well?

Thanks for such a great tool, here online and as the calibre plug in

I can't speak toward FFDL's support for this site, but as a better workaround than copying and pasting perhaps you could take a look at the GrabMyBooks plugin? It allows you to build up an ebook from one or more web pages by grabbing just certain elements of the page, and can remember the "rules" you set up for any given website so you can quickly grab similarly-formatted stuff. I've found it excellent for making ebooks out of any old random article I come across.

Test version with a fix for potionsandsnitches.net.

Just a reminder, there are instructions on how to manually install plugins in the plugins introduction post.

UPDATE Mar 08, 2014 -- Remove obsolete beta versions

Is there a way to configure FanfictionDownloader so not all <span> element style attributes get stripped out? Is there a way for me to preserve style information enclosed in a span element in the original html?

Enjoying the plugin so far. Very slick.

Glad you like it.

In personal.ini you can set the keep_style_attr setting for all sites in the [defaults] section or for a particular site by adding a section for it.

Code:
## If set true, any style attributes on tags in the story HTML will be
## kept.  Useful for keeping extra colors & formatting from original.
keep_style_attr: true

[QUOTE=JimmXinu;2776532]Test version with a fix for potionsandsnitches.net.


I used the command line install procedure. The test new story: No One Noticed downloaded fine.

When I tried to check for new chapters to a previously downloaded story, A Travesty, the story file updated, but the number of chapters in the calibre preview pane says 5, and the story now has 11 chapters.

Is that a Calibre error, not updating the preview of the EPUB 1st page?

Does the title page inside the epub should show the correct chapter count? If it's only the cover image in calibre that's out of date, make sure that you have the option in FFDL config for updating the cover turned on. See attached image.

auto-convert feature

So I finally got around to updating FFDL (I was a couple versions behind >_<) and found this wonderful little addition "Automatically convert new/update books?" Yay!

My only problem now is that it only works on newly added books. Am I mistaken that it should also convert updated books? My basic page is below, should I change something to make it work better?

Updates should also kick off the convert. They do for me...

I know it's a lot to ask, but would adding either of these sites be possible?

http://www.tolkienfanfiction.com
http://www.henneth-annun.net

Both are active and have stories that are unavailable anywhere else.

tolkienfanfiction.com appears have ~20 updates in the last 6 months and 1031 total stories. I've added to the 'Sites under consideration' list, but it's not going to be priority.

henneth-annun.net is already supported. The full list of supported sites is here.

Test version with additional profile times debug output. Investigating issue 59, possible (unintended) slow down.
