  1. =( is there no way to roll back to non-whitecube UI? I normally just hack up some bash to grab all the images I want from sites, but Pixiv’s new UI is so cumbersome and I was so happy to have found your project—only for the same UI to get in my way lol. Unfortunately all of the javascript makes it difficult for me to scrape with bash.

  2. I’ve been using your software for two years now, and despite some things here and there, it’s probably my favorite ripper out of the box for anything.

    Just one thing: How am I supposed to control both Bookmark filenames and normal filenames at the same time?

    Am I expected to only disjoint my usage of the program for original artwork and bookmark links to original artwork?

    filenameformat = %artist% (%member_id%)\%urlFilename% – %title%
    filenamemangaformat = %artist% (%member_id%)\%urlFilename% – %title%

    filenameformat = %original_artist% (%original_member_id%)\%urlFilename% – %title%
    filenamemangaformat = %original_artist% (%original_member_id%)\%urlFilename% – %title%

    Or does the latter work for both styles?

      1. So basically I should just use the original if I want bookmarks to show up as the original authors period, right?

        I understand the default behavior is to place bookmarks in the directory of the bookmark holder.

        And thanks for replying so fast, Nandakaさん!

    trying to download r18 only
    any help?

    1. Can you open the pixiv website and check if you are using the new UI (got whitecube in the url)? If yes, it is not supported yet.

      1. my url is something like this
        ( “I” icon with circle on it) http://www.pixiv.net/

        also when I try to download one pic only with r18 tag it give me an error message :
        Image Error for 59613271: Not in MyPick List, Need Permission!

        does R18 are included on MyPick list now?

        thanks for reply anyway

        1. Ok, then you are still using the original ui. Can you upload the html pages to mediafire? Look for %E3%83%A9%E3%83%96%E3%83%A9%E3%82%A4%E3%83%96%215000users%E5%85%A5%E3%82%8A.html. I suspect this is due to login issue, can you follow the cookie method, refer to the FAQ section on the readme.

          For MyPick, this is limitation from the server. You need to be in the artist friend group before you can see the picture.

          1. Sorry I don’t know how to upload the html on mediafire
            more like I didn’t find a mediafire link from :


            also for mypick
            it’s not only 1, but all of r-18 tagged pics

            for now will try the cookie method

          2. > all of r-18 tagged pics

            Check your pixiv settings on the website, ensure R-18 is enabled and delete the cookie value from config.ini.

    1. Only for those selected for beta-test their new ui, not all got it.
      Might take sometimes before I can change the logic because they totally change the way to get the images.

      1. I didn’t sign for beta
        and, bro. I got message from pixiv.
        We have updated our design,
        So as to allow you to enjoy more of the illustrations, manga and novels,
        While providing you with an improved platform to feedback to the creators.

        this shitty Tumblr like UI is no longer beta.
        its alive build 🙁

          1. Really?
            huh… I really don’t have idea why it is changed and how to turn back 🙁
            well, it is not important thing.
            real problem is downloader is not working.
            downloader keep saying ‘No image found’
            can you help me?

        1. Makes me wonder what in the world their designers were smoking when they made the current crappy pixiv layout. It’s ugly and cumbersome as hell now.

          1. They were probably inspired by all the other sites with giant thumbnails. The new layout needs getting use to but I’ve seen worse.

  4. Does the tag downloader search for tags using the s_tag query or s_tag_full? I think s_tag_full also searches for tags within the file description so it finds a lot of things that match the search but don’t actually have a tag for it.

  5. I’m sorry for my poor English.
    http://www.pixiv.net/ -> new account is possible link.
    http://www.pixiv.net/whitecube/ -> original account link is only here.

    in the range as possible here and there searched for other solution, but I couldn’t looking that.
    on this issue, belatedly found it notice of small message.
    ‘changes to pixiv’.
    in homepage, could be seen in tho bottom right hand corner of the this message.

    I’m so sorry but about this problem want to get help.

      1. Hi, checked out github issue but dont have acc.
        I compared my cookies to yours and found 2 cookies related to whitecube that you dont have.
        whitecube_tutorial_checked: value=1
        whitecube_tutorial_shown: value=1
        hope it helps.

        1. I have manually added using Chrome console `document.cookie=”keyofcookie=valueofcookie”`, but it doesn’t give me the new ui.

          1. Hi, i checked again.
            I have a cookie called device_token with a long string as a value. If im thinking right it might have to do with their mobile site.
