did imagefap change their file naming organization

Post by swgoldwing » 28 Nov 2019, 04:45

I just got the new "imagefap.com - gallery template" .. all the files downloaded now have a numeric id naming vs the name shown in the gallery. Is this due to a change in imagefap's code?

also, saw a lot of dup/confict files created .. had to change the default save->conflict setting to "do not download and save..." to avoid the dups.. don't know where they are coming from.

I hope there's a way to get the 'original' filename as shown when viewing the gallery used for downloaded files.

thanks

Yes, imagefap recently did change the way they store their files, so we changed the templates. Working on the duplicate files problem now.

OK, brand-new imagefap gallery template is here:

imagefap.com - gallery template

No more duplicate files.

well that sucks. so, there's no way to get the original filename?
I do notice that the original filename is in the title tag.. don't know if that's a fragile place to look
Thanks

Yeah, I saw that. And the only way to use that title was to add it at the end of full-size image URL as the last parameter using Custom Parsers. Which I actually did and server refused such URL :(

FWIW.. I wrote a small program which will post-process a collection of EPF downloaded folders .. specifically from imagefap.com (which has recently borked up the filenames one saves files to)
.. load the gallery page (1 page view)
.. spin thru the files in the downloaded/created folders
.. check the existing filename against the gallery page (dom) to make sure the file is there and/or hasn't been renamed already
.. load the specific image photo page and extract the original filename from the title tag
.. rename the old file to the original file name.

works pretty well for me.. and is pretty fast.

After some more bullet-proofing i could make it available if anybody want to try/use it

And Extreme Picture Finder will have the ability to use value of any attribute of the tag where Target File was found as a file name.

It is done. You can now use value of any attribute from the HTML tag where link to the image (or any other Target File) was found. So, download and install the new version of Extreme Picture Finder:

Download new version

Also all imagefap.com templates were updated to use that feature, so download and install any of them:
