Tweaking my NZB Setup

Postby jimerb » Sun Dec 22, 2019 1:09 pm

I'm trying to have Newsbin group all the files in a zip of NZB's into a folder with the name of the ZIP file.

So for example if the file is somegreatstuff.zip, and it has 20 nzb's in it, I want that to create a folder called somegreatsuff (not the name of the nzb files inside of it. I don't want any subfolders -- just the files inside folder somegreatstuff.)

Now I have as both my paths:

C:\\Newsbin Pro Files\$(NZBPATH)\$(NZBFILE)\

But it creates folder names for each nzb file in the ZIP.

I tried
C:\\Newsbin Pro Files\$(NZBPATH)\$(FILENAME)\

but that made an ugly folder name for me with the individual filename inside the nzbs.

I have "D&D/Load NZB to one Post List" checked but it did not have the desired effect.

Possible?

Zip are just containers to Newsbin. Once the ZIP is unzipped, it's discarded. This means it doesn't participate in path selection. The only way I see to do this is with an NZB watch list with its own download and unrar path. So you group download and unrar folders by having different watch folders per download and unrar path set.

Ok thanks. It would be a nice new feature if you could use the zip filename as a variable for the path.

I wrote a note in my todo to consider it.
