PornCoven-restricting download to one post or one page

Post by Spidey »

The PornCoven template works fine but downloads a whole thread which are often many pages long. Is it possible to modify the template so that it downloads only one post or maybe a single page of the thread?

You can remove the first filter in the [ Included URLs ] section to prevent Extreme Picture Finder from crawling thread pages. This one:

^[^\?'"\[]+porncoven\.com/threads/[^/]+/page\d+$

Thanks Maxim. I actually found a different solution in your post

at the top of the forum. My apologies for cluttering up the forum with unnecessary posts. RTFM, as they say!

Sure Maxim.

From EPF Toolbar menu select Templates then Open local template library from the drop down menu.

Right click on the template of interest and select Template properties from the drop down menu then click on View/modify project properties at the bottom of the dialogue box.

In the new box that opens under Site exploration/Regular site select Current page only and ensure that Download files from external sites is checked.

Click OK once to close the box and (optionally) in the remaining box left click Title and folder, edit the Title and click OK

Apart from the Title change this is all in section 3. of your post I cited above.

The only drawback I've found is that if you reinstall the original template it overrides the new settings despite the name change.

OK, I see. Thank you.

If you want to prevent template overrides - copy a template file with a different name. All template are small text files located in the [ Templates ] sub-folder of the Extreme Picture Finder [ Data folder ]. You can see the location of the [ Data folder ] in Extreme Picture Finder settings, [ Advanced ] section:
