hentai2read template suggestion

Post by dskream » 01 May 2019, 06:28

I'm not even close to being good enough to be called a n00b when it comes to regex, but the sub-folder naming for the hentai2read template doesn't work... well. It creates subfolders for each starting address based on the web folder the images are stored in.
So instead of hentai2read\Manga_name\ and then having the image files under that folder, you end up with this instead:
heantai2read\77384\1\ and then image files.

I found that if I select
"Use target file parent URL Regular Expression to create sub-folder"
and then add the following for the regular expression:

and then for folder name put [#1]

that it will create a sub-folder based on the url of the particular manga you are listing in the starting addresses.

Thank you very much for the suggestion!

The way it is now was done for comics that have several "chapters". So when they do, Extreme Picture Finder will save pictures from different chapters in the separate sub-folder with the chapter number, like this:


where "77384" is the comic ID and "1", "2", "3" are the chapter numbers. Can you confirm that it does work like this now?

But in general, yeah, it would be better if it was possible to use the original comic folder name like "/comic_name/" and then add numbered sub-folder for chapters.
