2 Questions

Post by DrSeussFreak » Tue Oct 11, 2016 6:48 pm

1) How can I have a single file span multiple issues?
2) How can I run the "Manual MetaTagging" against all series?

1) You can't atm - but that's more-so about the why then the how I think. I've never come across a reason to have single files span multiple issues, can you give a context as to what it is that you're trying to accomplish?
2) Manual metatagging can only be done on a per series basis, although it's probably possible for me to have the option also present in the Manage Comics section - but metatagging also takes hits on your CV API, so as long as you're not metatagging thousands at a time, it 'should' be ok in that aspect ? (I've never tagged more than a hundred at a time, so I'm not sure of when it becomes a breaking point that you go over the CV hourly API limit).

1) Sometimes I have a cbz with multiple issues, but it is an unofficial TPB, or I have a TPB cbz that I want to include with other single issues under a single series in Mylar, rather than having some skipped or ignored and having a separate entry just for the TPB. Sometimes if you buy the comic book bundles on HumbleBundle.com they come in multi-issue files but ComicVine doesn't recognize them as TPB as they are unofficla.

2) I was thinking of how you can manage a series now, if we could have an option to do this, it would be great. I understand there is a limit within the API for comicvine, I would not do them all at once, but going series by series with over 400 series would not be fun.

Ok, now I can understand. I think if we can agree on some naming convention to indicate multiple issue #'s within the filename, I can accommodate the request easily enough, but the format would have to be consistent throughout the files in order to ensure that things get picked up properly. (ie. Some Series v2005 [#1-5].cbr or something?)

As far as the metagging, I should be able to get that in a dev commit fairly soon. I'll update this with the respective dev commits when both are available in the branch :)

So my naming convention, as you have seen, is "The Walking Dead - 2016 - 150", so for multiples, I have it listed as "The Walking Dead - 2016 - 150-155"
