urlencode filename may be too long

Post by wcolor » 05 Nov 2017, 19:54

Extream Picture Finder puts the filename of multibyte character URL as it is urlencoded.
This often exceeds the Windows file path max limit.

I'm happy to decode and save the image.
What is urlencoded is one that contains a lot of "%".

It seems necessary to be able to specify the character code of urlencode.

Thank you.

Long file names are truncated to fit maximum file name length since version 3.33 if I remember it correctly. Decoding such file names is in the to-do list.

Hmmm. I am using the latest version, but in fact it generated a filename that is too long and I can not delete the file.

I can use the serial number file name instead, but I am worried that the patrol process for downloading will be delayed or the images will be duplicated.

I do not know how other people use it, but I want to collect images automatically by "subscribing" people or sites rather than downloading images from the page I found.
In doing so, it is important to ignore the image page already downloaded, as well as not to download the downloaded image once again.

Does the above concern become obvious even with serial number file name?

Hmm. Interesting. If file name was too long - EPF could not create such file in the first place. That's why we had to fix it in 3.33.

Maybe because I use regular expressions for saved folder names?

Maybe. Can you send me your project file to support@exisoftware.com? You can find the location of project file in the project properties, "Project files" section.
