Hi 600WPMPO,
I read the manual, and the section for Comic Vine, but I'm still not sure how to be able to force it to let me select a new series for the comics, other than what I described doing above.

Is there something I'm missing, or maybe it's a bug?

Thanks!

Delete the tags field of the details tab & the notes field of the plot & notes tab. Switch the Proposed Values from Yes to No. See if the series field is clear, if not: Clear the series field also. Then validate the change by clicking on Ok which will close the info window. When you will open the info window again, the series field will be blank and you will be able to specify whatever you want.

Tell me if this does/doesn't work..

My pleasure..

For future similar problems, uncheck these options in the comic vine scraper settings window:




p.s. your query is going in the manual's new 4th dition. Thanks for asking for help! :)

Ah, now I understand that option. I thought previous choice meant previous query, for example if I had searched for 2-3 comics, the previous comic's setting would apply.

Gee.. thanks man !

p.s. Hopefully today, I'll be sending you the proofs for the new CVS pages I have made for the manual, so that you can point out any corrections/improvements required
So, please keep a watch on your PM inbox..

Hey cool someone is actually watching the changelogs! :)

The reason for all that activity is that I'm switching the code repository from SVN to Mercurial.

I've been rather distracted with unexpected personal issues since the end of summer, so I've only been working on the Scraper in short fits and starts--an hour or two here, and hour or two there, nothing major. It hasn't added up to much in the way of cool changes yet, sorry. :(

On the bright side (sort of) my girlfriend is moving to another city for a couple months (to finish school) and it's winter here now (so I won't feel even the slightest urge to go outside.) Together, those things mean I should have plenty of time for work on the scraper this month.

As always, I'll let you guys know as soon as I have something. :)

Not that I miss ANY thing at all in the script, but, it is great to know you still look at ways to improve it!

Now, here is an idea for you! I have't really looked into the code for a while, but it seems to me it is really modularized... I was playing with the idea of making plugins for a plugin... so that the base structure is reused, changing just the part that queries the database so it could be adapted to other databases... just food for thought, since the interface and options you offer are just superb, it would be great not to need to reinvent the wheel!


Cheers!

:)
