@Gareee

You can export any webcomic to a cbz file. See the bottom of page 140 of the ComicRack Manual.

Thanks. I had to tinker with it to get the output. Looks like you have to get it down in the browser, and then export the comic to a cbz.

This probably wasn't the best first choice, since there are over 1200 pages!

It looks like after you get it in the browser you have to right click export it as a cbz. The only negative thing is it also removed my webcomic entry when it created the cbz file.

of course it'll take me some time before I'm done reading these to go grab the latest issues.. ;)

I also see why Dilbert is not working. Complications involving very slightly differently named versions of the same comic causes it to think the regex is wrong.

I've attached a cbw for it. I've only set it up for the last month when I was testing so you may want to change the start date. Just open the cbw with notepad or similar program and change
<Image Url="?http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2012-02-01/">
with your desired start comic. Be sure to keep the question mark.

Woot! It's working perfectly now :) Thanks so much! (And I can pick up exactly where I left off, hehe.)

Can't seem to get it to work with MangaFox anymore. All my previous ones made with MangaFox still work, but I can't seem to make new ones. The last one I made that worked was back at the beginning of March.:(

Thanks for creating this! It's worked on most of the sites I've tried it on, but I haven't had any success with this one:

Crossed: Wish You Were Here

If someone could show me how to make that one work I'd be very grateful.

Thanks!

Crossed sorted by chapters. Script worked fine once I put in the second image location.

Thanks! I tried entering the location for the second picture repeatedly. For Crossed 5, which would the correct url for the second page?

I am a big fan of this script, but I have noticed that sometimes it fails comics on www.smackjeeves.com/

beceause the comic images are sometimes stored on different servers. Is their anyway to create a more generic solution to this host?

Q: Is there a way of setting up the Helper to stop at a certain comic? Many of my webcomics are separated by books, volumes or years. This would cut down on the number of pages per comic and also give them more of a TPB feel.

As far as I can tell there is no way to limit a cbw so I can't put such a function in to the Helper.
