Hello,

when using multi-pages increment is hard-coded to 1. At least for phpBB a custom increment is needed, because other pages than first page are referenced by a post count:

http://forum.test.com/viewforum.php?f=2&start=25

The bold figure depends on site configuration so it needs a custom increment (or it could even be fetched from URL for known site types).

In the above example "Page from:" = 2 and "Page to:" = 3 and custom increment of 25 will result in calling the URLs:

http://forum.test.com/viewforum.php?f=2&start=25 and

http://forum.test.com/viewforum.php?f=2&start=50.

Hi,

yes, would need to think something out for this.

Just to be clear, the "Topics" leeching also has option to enter custom pages, but it's automatically converted to "start=25" , "start=50" for phpBB (and other types which use this type of pages) based on "Messages per page" value which you enter.

This suggestion is fine. What you described for "Multi-pages" is not possible at the moment.

What I wrote above is only for topics (mega-threads) leeching.

Ha, I just figured that out when trying it out - alright, please accept it as a suggestion. For now I can easily work around it, so it's not urgent for me.

  • Added new field "Increment" for "Multi-Pages" leeching:
    • By default 1 (which was always before). Pages increased as normal from "Page from" to "Page to": 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.
    • If entered value is more than 1, it's increased as "(currentPage - 1) * increment". For example if entered 25, page numbers would be: 0, 25, 50, 75, etc.
