reddit albums

Post by iamanepfuser » 06 Dec 2020, 17:10

reddit now is hosting their own picture albums. Can the reddit template be updated to get those?

ex: https://www.reddit.com/r/AlbumBabes/com ... 6_nonnude/

Hmm... What a nice example! ;-) I'll need more. Preferably different types of albums (if there are different types). It looks like it'll require a separate template.

I don't know if there are any different types of albums (not really sure what you mean either). The only way I know of creating an album on reddit is if you are using the new reddit (re)design (you can't create albums in old reddit) but you can view the albums on new or old reddit. The actual album link is https://www.reddit.com/gallery/k4or49

I don't know if it makes a difference that there is a "new" reddit and an "old" reddit layout/design.

OK, thanks. I'll try to create a new template for these albums.

Here, try this template:

www.reddit.com - gallery template

And let me know the result.

Ok thanks for the template but a couple of issues. When I try and use https://www.reddit.com/r/AlbumBabes/com ... 6_nonnude/ I get the "Target files not saved" message and the download log only says "200-OK" for HTTP response for that link. When I started the project EPF automatically picked "download subreddit images" and I had to change to the "gallery template". I tried the subreddit template but got the same "Target files not saved". But when I used https://www.reddit.com/gallery/k4or49 it downloaded fine, no issues.

Also is there a way to incorporate this into the other reddit templates (subreddit and user) that's more what I was looking for originally. Rather than downloading each gallery individually.

Thanks again for the all the work.

You don't have to rely on the automatically selected template - choose the one you need manually.

Not sure this is doable. All files in the albums are located on the

preview.redd.it

server. And in both reddit template this server is excluded to avoid saving duplicate images - those templates save only originals...

Okay but the template says it should work on both links but I can only get the one to work.

Well, apparently you cannot mix both types of URLs in one project. You should create project with either /gallery/ or /comment/ URLs. If you combine them - /comment/ URLs won't work.

Basically, if you want the main reddit template to work with albums - remove

preview\.redd\.it/

from the list of excluded URLs. You'll get a bunch of duplicate files, but also you'll have all albums files as well.
