About the Download History

Post by RedneckDrow » Mon 11. Apr 2011, 15:35

Will this be functional any time soon? :?:

Even partial functionality would be great! :D

In the mean time, could you add a select all checkbox or a delete all button? I hate having to cycle through the stories I download. Sqlite has some kind of code for this, I'm fairly certain, even if I haven't used it myself in a dog's age. I've got a database viewer up; maybe that will help me remember, because it includes a syntax manual.

Hi,

sry, I don't know how long it'll take and when I'll find the time to do it.

A faster way to clear the download history other than checkboxing each individual story is to close out FanfictionDownloader and then delete the ffdl2.sqlite file. On Windows 7 it's at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\FanFictionDownloader

You then restart FanfictionDownloader, which will recreate the ffdl2.sqlite file and treat this as a brand new startup (you'll have to re-enter your configuration data). It only takes a few seconds for me, I download a lot of stories (usually FFN authors and their favorites list) so it was practical for me to just make a link to the folder above on my desktop.

Yeah, I already know about the database file, but I wanted a way that would preserve my settings. In a no-install scenario, it's in the same directory as the executable.

I personally hate programming with Sqlite databases. The syntax is a pain.

Hi,

using the database for stories and config was a very very very large mistake....
But I'll solve it hopefully soon. (Something like an .ini for config)

I have no problems with SQLite... just implement it and then its normal SQL

I''d use .ini for configuration, because that's what most people are used to editing; though as long as it's a configuration file, .conf works just as well.
