"Placeholder" In Wish List v6.80B5 - Build 4909

Postby deloppoled » Sat Jul 08, 2017 1:58 am

Hi.

There seems to be an issue with the Main Download Folder "$(GROUP)" code producing "Placeholder" instead of the group name. Attached please find a screen capture that will hopefully make what I am saying clear. I take that back, I guess that I can't attach an image so I put it on Google Drive, below please find URL to picture.

Maybe I am just doing something wrong, but if that's it can someone please fill me in?

Thank you kindly for your time.
Dan

Thanks.

If I had to guess, I'd guess it's related to using additional search tabs. I was wondering how to reproduce it but I'll try it in additional search tabs and see if it happens here.

Thank you for the quick reply!

The extra search tabs suggestion didn't seem to do anything on my machine at least in the tests I could think of and complete tonight.

1. I closed all but the default search tab and then added an item to the wish list, still got the "placeholder."

2. I then exited Newsbin and restarted with just the default searchtab, still got the "placeholder."

It's late so I need to get to bed, but I will see if deleting the current .nbi file and starting fresh does anything tomorrow evening.

This issue is not a big deal at all, I'd call it really really small, since the files all get named correctly, plus I don't use the wish list too often. But maybe a fresh .nbi will help!

I'll post findings tomorrow or the day after.

Thanks again, have a nice day!

I wasn't suggesting it as a solution but rather I need to know how to reproduce the bug before I can fix it.

I'm going to look at it today.
