I have been using the scraper for awhile and I recently updated to the latest 1.0.72.

It seems to be having trouble finding a series. It searches for All Star and does not list the series at all. If I go to the ComicVine website and search All Start the correct series is the first one listed in the search bar:
www.comicvine.com/all-star/4050-71661/

This was not the only series. Astro City (2013) is one (it searches for Astro City). All-New X-Men and All-New X-Factor were not being found unless I searched on X-Men or X-Factor

I never mess with the scraper's settings. So, I am wondering if anyone else is having trouble with the scraper not finding the series? Is there anything I can do to help find the issue, if it is not me?

Thanks!

It's not you amd it's not the scraper. It's the comicvine website. they seriously messed up their search function in their last upgrade and are still *supposedly* trying to fix it.

There is extensive discussion about this in numerous other scraper threads on the forum.

In case you haven't found it yet, this is being discussed here:
Scraper Thread

Basically Comicvine updated their search engine, so there are some issues.
