This is genious! It works great with almost everyone I've tried.

This one failed, I'm leaving feedback as advised in the error message:

Yes, it'd appear that the punctuation in the second page screws things up for the script. Dumb mistake on our part, will be fixed for the next version.

Use the attached file instead for the time being. Has all the metadata already included.

As I must be the dumbest of this excellent site's users, I'm delighted to be able to add my warmest thanks for your efforts with the 'Helper'. Almost immediately I have a whole library of 'Peanuts' to enjoy and am looking forward eagerly to what the future will bring.
BRAVO! indeed.

Umm, I registered explicitly for the purpose of thanking for the script, even before I read your message.

This is something I waited for since the introduction of Webcomics in ComicRack. I couldn't give it a test run yet, but I'm looking forward to Webcomics from my favourite Manga pages. :P

PS: It took me half an hour to register. It would help to

  • make the forum registration work under Chrome which has an even higher market share than Firefox now (for whatever reason, the security question fails), I had to resort to IE (ugh!) :pinch:
  • and keep the entries in the registration form when encountering errors (tedious retype necessary)

So I tried to make my first webcomic from Mangafox available to ComicRack, but with mixed success. :unsure:

The script collected only the first pages of the chapters and some other stuff, but that was not what I expected.

Can somebody please help? I use the Manga portals almost exclusively, and results like that were also the stumbling block with my attempts to make my own .cbw files long ago. My .cbw file is attached, I followed the instructions to the letter.

Source: www.mangafox.com Manga: Shinryaku! Ika Musume

I tried to look at the source in the .cbw myself, but had to throw the towel at this nice collection of brackets and backslashes.

A tutorial on Webmanga from Mangaportals like Mangafox --> .cbw would be much appreciated!

SmilinOn and emk2203. Thanks! It's good to see the script being used.

cmk2203 and Aerinx: Webcomic Helper 1.1 should fix your problems.

Escaped characters in urls now work correctly
Fixed the Mangafox template
Fixed error when the finish button is clicked after the script has failed

Thank you - works like a charm for the one Manga and one Comic I tried.

I'll go and try with different Manga sites in the next couple of days; I let you know if I run into problems.

And thanks for all your efforts - that really improves my ComicRack experience (thanks to Cyo as well!).

This is curious as I registered and exclusively use Chrome on this site and didn't have the problem you mentioned. Though there is another website (battle.net) that I periodically have problems logging into because of the pop over they use. So given that, I wont suggest user error either. I'll just suggest its Eddie's fault.

Thanks a lot for the fix and the packaged comic. This fast response and quick delivery increases the awesomeness beyond the greatest greats of coolness. XD :woohoo:
