Download to folder named for subject

Postby Alex Atkin UK » Thu Aug 04, 2022 10:40 pm

Is there is any way to disable the number stripping from this feature?

Often when pictures are posted, the set numbers are in the subject and it gets stripped resulting in all sets going into the same folder name. This is particularly bad if the filenames are generic so end up being renamed haphazardly.

Let me go through the code. There's a "raw subject" mode but I don't remember how to activate it.

I see $(RAWSUBJECT)\ is an internal variable within Newsbin but no way to apply this to "Download to folder named for subject".

Yeah you can't change the way it cleans the subject using that mode. You can use the "download to existing/new folder" which should let you edit the subject before you click "Ok".

Yeah I use that a lot but its very time consuming, particularly as loading up the file requester in a folder with a lot of files/folders seems to lag heavily under WINE.
