Re: Site Request: Twisting the Hellmouth

The TtH Whole Story download is mildly lacking. It lacks the normal header information, and the chapter markings are indistinct (for Finding)

Batch Download stuck at 96% Converting

Version 0.8.13
I just started a batch download, and the first story is hung with the progress bar at 96% - Converting.
I have the program set to output HTML format, so they technically don't need to be converted.

If I kill the program, and download it as a single, it completes just fine.

Re: Request: Layout options

I'd argue against using CSS. I like to use a very simple old browser called OffByOne to save memory and resources, and it cannot use CSS formatting that I'm aware of. I'd like the HTML formatting to remain very simple, so that it's easy to load it into a text editor and change things by hand.

Empty Chapters

Sometimes the program will barf when downloading a story, and add an empty chapter, especially on slow connections.
It says <Chapter Whatever>" but nothing in the chapter area.

Smart Quote converter

I like to use a very simple HTML viewer ( http://offbyone.com/offbyone/ ) that hacks up a hairball at smart quotes, and apostrophes, and other extended characters. I'd like an option to convert these down to NORMAL characters when downloading, and a possible batch converter to do the job on already-...

Ficwad broken? - Fixed

I just tried several times to download a 1 chapter story from Ficwad, but it isn't working. Pressing the "Check" button showed only the author name and not the storynamed. An attempt to download the story only saves the header information, but no story text. The fic in question is http://ficwad.com/...

Re: Site Request

My site request:
http://fanfic.potterheadsanonymous.com (They do have a "print" feature but those produce unsatisfying results)

Also, fictionalley.org

Site Request

Portkey.org

According to a friend of mine on a list, FFDL used to be able to do this! He uses that old version for PK and Ficwad only.

Layout.html

Layout.html is still being ignored.

I use it to specify colors and chapter links

Code: Select all

		<body bgcolor = "black">
		<font color = "white">
