    1. I can use the dump file and loads just fine, I’m using yande.re tags.xml.

      Looks like your tags.xml got issues, can you upload the tags.xml?

    1. It can differentiate the tags as long it is have the information on the tags.xml.
      – %artist% = Artist Tag
      – %copyright% = Copyright Tag
      – %character% = Character Tag
      – %circle% = Circle Tag, yande.re extension
      – %faults% = Faults Tag, yande.re extension
      – %searchtag% = Search tag

  1. Starting to get a very odd error anytime I try to download from Sankaku Complex (both regular and Idol) now. Regardless of what I search, it’s popping up an error of “Length cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: length.” Other sites still work for searching, so it’s got to be something on Sankaku. The log window shows this:

    Which is very strange, as it worked fine yesterday. I even tried reinstalling it “fresh” and it was still doing it.

    Also, how do I blacklist more than one tag at a time? I’ve tried three different ways (one tag per line, tags on one line separated by spaces, tags in one line separated by colons) but none of them seem to work.

      1. Alright, doing it that way seems to work, though obviously, it’s a little counter-intuitive or it should be pointed out “If you want to block multiple, you have to do it this way” in the readme or something.

        Sankaku still seems busted (but I wasn’t expecting blacklist stuff to fix it at any rate).

        1. If you didn’t tick the use regex, it supposed to be separated per newline. I’ll check about it.

          If you enable use regex, then you can write a regular expression rules to define the black list, which is more powerful.

  2. If I use danbooru’s tags.xml, then “unhandled exception value cannot be null”
    If I use yandere’s tags.xml, it work fine but cannot get the %artist% properly, with either wrong or nothing in the artist tags
    Is there any ways to fix that?

      1. Nevermind, I use safebooru as the tags source and now the problem is gone, but with danbooru as the tags source it still happens
        By the way, it’d be nice if you include the filesize column in the preview table cuz some images are duplicate and of course everybody want to save the bigger one
        Thanks 🙂

  3. I’ve been trying to add https://derpibooru.org to the sites list but I can’t get it to work.
    I’ve tried both using the dialog box and editing DanbooruProviderList.xml directly without success.
    I’ve deleted the installed and tried using a fresh copy from the .zip several times.
    I’ve tried to use this as the search page based on their API page: https://derpibooru.org/search.json?q=pony
    Here’s a copy of the folder if anyone is willing to take a look:

  4. What do i have to put in the SOURCE tab if whatever source is fine? If i leave it empty i get a warning:

    “Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: source.

    1. That exception is not from the source text box.
      Source text box is optional. It is from .Net generic exception.

      Give me the search details, e.g. tag, provider, etc.
      Try to search using other provider/tag.

  5. For example, rosario + vampire

    + Is included inability to search

    Please tell us how to solve

    1. don’t add space if you want to join 2 search string, e.g.: rosario+vampire.

      space will be converted to ‘+’, also use rosario_vampire, which is the correct tag.

        1. Other issues

          ‘6+Girl’ tag inability to search

          ‘+’ Is included inability to search

          I’m sorry, but please explain it again

          ‘champ +’

          ‘+’ Including the inability to search

          1. no need to write the ‘+’ sign manually, as Danbooru Downloader will replace the space ‘ ‘ into plus ‘+’ automatically.

            If you want to write your own query string manually, just un-tick the Generated check box and paste text after ‘?’ in the url from danbooru website.

            Try to search using simple term first, also note: Danbooru limit your search up to 2 term for free user.

  6. Why do I get this error?

    Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    ‘doctype’ is an unexpected token. The excepted token is ‘DOCTYPE’ .
    Line 1. position 3.

    1. Most likely, the server returned bad xml format. What is the search query you are using? Can you uploade the log file inside the application folder to mediafire/pastebin?

        1. 2013-08-26 14:25:28,197 ERROR – [Download Tags] The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

          Either you didn’t enter the login information (see readme.txt) or you are banned from danbooru.

          Anyway, you can download the tags.xml using your browser, or use different source, yande.re is the good one.

          1. Yeah, I didn’t enter the login information, because I didn’t know that I had to. It works now.
            And do I need a account in every provider, where I want to download?

    1. What is the issue? I can download from Sankaku.

      Explain the issue with more detail, and provide the screen shot and the error log!

  7. Is it possible to add a feature to allow multiple image downloads while doing batch jobs? Or something to increase the rate at which it downloads?

  8. Add photo to blacklist

    Photoshop is blocked

    This is because duplicate words

    The workaround ..?

    1. Use correct syntax if you enable Use Regex, which should be written like ^photo$ for the exact match, or you can disable Use Regex.

      You can find the syntax for Regex by searching Regular Expression on google.

  9. I seem to be getting either “Unhandled Exception” errors or “no posts” messages whatever I do. I’ve tried different boards, tags, and user auths and stuff, nothing works. All i get are bunch of dump files in the root directory. Am I missing something?

        1. Upload the log file in your danbooru folder, the filename should looks like: log-2013-08-15.txt

          From the unhandled exception message, looks like the server is throwing invalid url for the images.

  10. Ok on Gelbooru when i try to do a batch job it’s only downloading images from page 1 (tag is mania_street) have i missed a setting?

        1. Weird, I can get more than 100 in batch job (total 154) for that tag.

          Try to set the hard limit to 1000 in FormProvider (go to main tab, select gelbooru.com, click Edit, change the hard limit to 1000, click save, then close).

          1. Upload the log-xxx-.txt to pastebin.

            You can delete the old log, then try to download to reproduce the error.

            You should see some line like this:
            013-08-16 00:40:11,093 INFO - [DoBatchJob] Downloading list: http://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=dapi&s=post&q=index&tags=mania_street&limit=100&pid=1

          2. Somehow the downloaded xml is started from pid=1, gelbooru is using index from 0.

            Change your start page from 0 😀

  11. Can you explain how the tagging works on this program? Under the settings tab, there is a section called “Tagging” where there is “Artist” [5], “Copyright” [5], “Character” [5], “Blacklisted tags”, “Ignored Tags” text boxes, “Use Regrex” check boxes, “Use Tags Auto Complete #” [200], and “Empty Tag Repl.” [____]

    I tried to look through the read me file that is provided, but I can’t find any explanation about how to use this function.

    1. “Artist” [5] => Limit number of Artist tags to be used in the filename format for %artist%.
      “Copyright” [5] => Limit number of Copyright tags to be used in the filename format for %copyright%.
      “Character” [5] => Limit number of Character tags to be used in the filename format for %character%.
      “Blacklisted tags” => Tags to be blacklisted in the Main Tab/Batch Job. it will shown with grey background in Main Tab. It will be skipped in Batch Job.
      “Ignored Tags” => Tags to be ignored in the filename
      “Use Regex” => Enable regular expression for filter Blacklisted/Ignored tags.
      “Use Tags Auto Complete #” [200] => Enable Autocomplete in Tag searchbox in Main tab. Up to 200 tags will be retrieved. This is based on your tags.xml.
      “Empty Tag Repl.” [____] => For filenaming, lets says you use %artist% meta for filename format but the image doesn’t have this information, then it will replaced based on this value.
