I use the date and category in the Filenamepattern section for downloading stories. i.e. %c - %s - %a (%d) - %p

The date is no longer being being entered into the file name or within the file in the 'Last updated:' section on 'any' stories downloaded from fanfiction.net. The file saves with nothing between the parentheses.

i.e.
Storylink: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13178452/1/ saves as
Harry Potter - Three little words - Rouven Singer () - In Progress

It works fine on stories from archive of our own or hpfanficarchive.

2nd error: The category %c portion is only working intermittently on crossover stories.
Some times it works sometimes it doesn't.

Storylink: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13205777/1/
will result in a fine name of:
- Chosen Again - The Last Founder () - In Progress
or
Star Wars + Harry Potter Crossover - Chosen Again - The Last Founder () - In Progress

I am not sure if this is do to ff.net changing things, traffic issues or what.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no success on my end. I did note that on reinstall the configuration setting did not need to be reset. I tried to look for a folder where those might have been saved to delete them and insure a complete reinstall but could not find it.

Any advice would be helpful.
Thanks.

Don't waste your time waiting. The creator of FanfictionDownloader doesn't give a rat's ass about us. Just use an older version, or find something else to download your fics with now.
