Thanks Stonepaw for the new release!

The problems I am facing:
Minor problems:

1. Its still very slow on first fetch

2. Blacklists not working properly on adding manually (Right-click & add to blacklist works just fine)


As can be seen, Games Workshop is both in the (manually added) blacklist as well as in the RSS feed list


Major Problem:

1. Always gives me this error on refresh which has the ability to crash ComicRack:



Surely, these can be worked on, right !

Anyway, the script is now much more advanced than it was in its earlier days.. may do with a little fine-tuning though :-)

I'm aware of the crash problem. Looking for a reason why it's happening. It was working last night....

As for the blacklist manual add feature. It's very case sensitive and only matches an exact match. I basically added the manual feature for testing purposes.

EDIT:Problem fixed. It was an error when no price was available from the rss feed.

Yes.. working fine now with "bugfix" update !! ;-)

For the next release, may I request the facility for selecting multiple publishers, and batch adding them to blacklist in a single go..

Sure, that would be simple enough to do. :)

I would also ask for wild card operators when entering blacklist items.
such as "Games - *"

Otherwise, AWESOME! my Favorite scrap-in! (script, app and plugin!)

Added the two requested features.

Note for wild cards characters: They are automatically added based on your selection in the provided dropdown menu. Options are: Is, Starts with, ends with and contains.

Have fun!

Yes.. that was Stonepaw fast :-) Lemme give you same karma..

One thing I would like to point out is that when we batch add publishers to blacklists, the yes/no confirm dialog boxes pop-up one after other for each publisher, and we have to click "yes" "yes" multiple times. When we are batch adding them, I think only a single confirm box should pop-up..

Maybe for next release ;-)
