Nl v8b3 unpacking everything to subfolder - fixed in v8b4 UFR 1 & 2

Post by noblemd »

V8b3
Windows 10 1909 18363.476

Settings Unpack Folder is set to my NAS folder \\TM5\T5.Current\ but NL unpacks to a subfolder of the file name.

NL to should not unpack to a subfolder unless the user specifically tells NL to unpack to a subfolder.

Totally agree. I have the same issue. Should be a setting but not forced.

This is a serious USER issue (probably easily fixable) that needs to addressed with a new Beta ASAP.

Also, the old Download Folder system needs to be reinstated soonest.

Just had the subfolder issue happen to me, this is ridiculous as a user if I have not asked for this, and it was not present in Beta2. #-o

I had the <Date> option enabled and newsleecher refused to download to this, thinking <Date> was a folder.
Is everything to download to the main folder using the file name as the folder name
Have the Tags actually need removed, reading the release features, doesn't specifically say

I'm currently working on making subfolders optional. The <DATE> and <GROUP> tags will also be avail. again.
When it's done ( pretty soon ) I'll post an unofficial test release here.
bug fixed. no idea how. hate it when that happens. trying to break it again now. will. not. be. defeated.

Excellent news Spiril, will test as soon as you post it, along with the other few fixes hopefully in Beta3 posts, especially the Search Results Filter TAB missing. =D>

I have uploaded a test release here:

https://www.newsleecher.com/nl80004.ufr1.exe

All folders specified via the "Download / Unpack Folders"-dialog, now support the following tags: <NAME>, <GROUP>, <DATE> and <DATETIME>

I haven't had the time to test properly yet, so expect bugs ;)

v.8b4 UFR

D/L to subfolder problem solved - NEED TO GO TO FOLDERS AND UNCHECK - Unpack to Subfolder

Update: Also tested downloads from specific group to a specific folder - it worked.

Still not pleased that I have to reconfigure - reenter all my previously set up group/folder entries.


Still unable to use SuperBrowse in search - Thousands of results no headers displayed!

Unpack to Subfolder should NOT be default
UPDATE: If Unpack to Subfolder is unchecked in main Folder window - Unpack to Subfolder should NOT be default in Add/Edit

Also, having issue with Folders retaining entries. Believe you have to APPLY then OK (not positive).

If pressing APPLY is solution - Settings should be retained by pressing OK only.

Lost entries occur after restart.


Update: Tried to make reoccur but unable - don't know what caused the entries to disappear.

noblemd,

Try this unofficial forum test release when you got the time:

https://www.newsleecher.com/nl80004.ufr2.exe

I haven't tested much yet, but the group:groupname tag should be working now. Multiple group-tags cannot be used in the same query though, so no group:groupname1 OR group:groupname2 syntax.
EDIT - NOW AVAILABLE: https://www.newsleecher.com/nl80004.ufr4.exe

New UFR tested and seems to work with the Group specifier.

My setup (Note: \\TM5\... is my NAS network drive. Equivalent to D-Drive specification D:\)
...........(W:\ is my M2 SSD download drive) :

I use NL Pre beta 4. I've set my download folder to C:\Newsleecher.in\<GROUP>\

It doesn't work for me.
