In that case there's one more of immediate interest that I've been having to do some manual downloads from. It's very very similar to wuxiaworld, but it doesn't have many stories maybe a few dozen but I figured because of how similar it is it might be a structural duplicate or close. volarenovels.com is the site.

Edit: One more that I personally visit regularly for a few stories is moonbunnycafe.com not a huge amount of novels, wuxia/xanxia translations sites never seem to with only one or two exceptions, but some good ones.

Those are wordpress blogs, structurally not similar at all unfortunately. I doubt that implementing an adapter that works for every story on the sites will be possible, unless the author or authors paid very close attention to be consistent. The newer stories seem to be consistent, but you never know with these kind of content management systems -- older stories might be structured differently. Just a heads up to gcomyn or anyone else who is planning on taking a go at this.

I get the email digest for this forum, and the "Forbidden" thing caught my attention. The DeanDamage website loads fine on my Firefox at work (haven't tried from home yet) but points out that it is not secured. Attempting to force secure connection gets a "Record Too Long" error.

Grabbed the test version and tried a few so I could report how it behaved for me. Downloaded without trouble, though it only gets the first author for multi-author, and it doesn't get the Rating. If I keep any of these, I'll probably need to figure out how to customize personal.ini to make the Category always Supernatural so it sorts better with my Fandom-based Categories. (I have the vague idea that at least one more site I use needs that customization, but I can't remember it right now. Something in Star Trek fandom? or Stargate fandom? I can't remember...)

It does look like the site is mostly dead, though - the Most Recent are blatant spam and the latest news is from 2009. Hope this helps.

So nobody else has seen the site come up as blocked? Just me?

(We're not trying to use https with it, so I'm not concerned about that error--but I do see it too.)

We do try to put categories etc like that in the defaults.ini. I'll add Supernatural to extracategories for that site and review the other recent adds.

@JimmXinu
Found a small bug. I tried this with a clean database (blank personal.ini) to verify before posting and it still happened. Tried it with 3 different sites, they all did it.

When the box 'New Only' under Configure FFF, Standard Columns,Author(s) is checked it doesn't change the author, but it does change Author Sort. I can't find anywhere where to change that as an option, and would assume it would be covered with Author.

One thing I have checked even in my (almost) default setting that I didn't think to check was it is set/checked to Force Author into Author Sort. I didn't think about looking if that affected it when doing my check.

On the contrary, "Force Author into Author Sort" checked is exactly what is causing what you see. Without it, author_sort is unchanged when standard column Author is checked 'New Only'. I'm glad you mentioned it, otherwise I'd not have found the problem.

I'll have a fix for this corner case (and the equivalent Force Title Sort) in the next test version.

Found it. It was Wraithbait. When I originally downloaded the stories I had, it wasn't putting Stargate Atlantis in the Categories column. Now it adds that, though it still keeps the other categories (ship pairings, character names) as well, so I may need to use the replace to force it. It'll take several lines, but that I can do. Thanks for all you do!

Not sure if this is something I did in settings (I haven't really changed anything so I doubt it) or if something has changed with the storiesonline.net website, but I just downloaded a story that had been previously downloaded with FFF fine, including pics, and the new epub has no pics, just a little box where the pic should be showing a square with a question mark in it.

I'm sure SOL isn't a major site, and very few of the stories there have pics so I doubt this will be a priority, but if you ever get time to look into it that would be great.

I just did a test on a couple of illustrated stories I have. The pictures dowloaded with no problems. It's possible it is problem with a particular story, if so, I need a URL to test. PM the link to me. Or it a could have been a network issue at the time. In that case, try again and see what happens.
