Would someone with administrator/moderator privileges mind updating the Scraper link on the following page:

comicrack.cyolito.com/user-forum/13-scri...ndex-of-scripts#9507

Right now it links to version 1.0.27 of the scraper, when of course it should link to 1.0.29 (or even better, it could just link directly to the comic vine scraper homepage, and then it won't need to be updated again.)

Thanks!

Updated the index. Thanks for the new script version! :)

Hi guys.

A few people have reported a problem where the scraper was unable to find issues for certain comic book series, even though those issues were available on the ComicVine website.

I've made a fix for this problem available in Comic Vine Scraper 1.0.30.

Since version 129, when the dialog to type the series name appears the focus goes to the cancel button. So, if you press enter it cancel the processing instead of using the suggested value. Could you please change it so the focus goes to the field with the series name? Thanks.

Sure, that makes sense.

There's another outstanding bug that was reported last night, so I will try to do both and make another point-release within a day or two here.

Hiya - thank you for the wonderful script.

It's worked fine for a long time, but just tonight stopped. I was running an older version, so upgraded first ComicRack to newest, then the script, and still no good, error message is, "The Comic Vine website could not be reached. It is possible that the website is not responding, or that you are not connected to the internet. Please try again later"

I am now having this same problem. Last time I scraped anything was Friday (3 days ago) and when I tried tonight I got this same message. I noticed that I was not running the updated (.30) version. So I went online to install and then received the same error message.

Keep in mind, I went online to get the new version, so the internet theory of this message is not valid. I also checked multiple titles and it does it to everyone.

I have tried all versions that I have (.27, .29 & .30) and the error code displays. :(

Please help, I have 2 days off from work and thousands of books to scrap :blink:

Yeah, I just checked and it looks like the ComicVine API website (the way that the scraper gets its data) is currently down:

api.comicvine.com/

On the few occasions that this has happened in the past, someone usually notices the problem and fixes it within a few hours, or at least by the next day. Then the scraper starts working again.

So for now, it's just a matter of waiting. :dry:

Cool, thanks for your help! Just would have been bummed if it were a problem on my end that I didn't get fixed.

Thanks again for the quick response.
