I get that too but not on all downloads just one or two. I have no idea why it accepts some from the same site but not others, very odd.

I'm not an expert, but is it maybe related to the story rating? Are the stories that require your log in info again rated NC17 or for adults only? Maybe check your personal.ini and confirm it says true to adult where it needs to. If not this, I am out of ideas. Sorry.

For me it's with every download. I've tried downloading stories with different ratings and still I'm asked for username and password every single time.

I had that happen once when I was first setting up the plugin and for me it was that I was leaving a space between the : and my user name when there shouldn't be a space and once I corrected that, I had not problem.

 :( Nope, didn't work.
I'll use ficlab for now and leave FFF for emergencies.  Hopefully Raimond will update fanfictiondownloader soon.

After following Kelly's instructions from facebook, it seems to work and I don't need to add my username and password manually  :dance:


Kelly, if you're here on PTS thank you so much  :-*

STARS Library Readers: for those of you who use Calibre and the FanFicFare Plugin to download stories, you have to install a new plugin in order for it to work. Here is a link to download the app. I'll leave it active for 30 Days:

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

If you don't want to have to type your username and password each time, go into the Personal INI in the plug in and add the following:

[starslibrary.net]
username:your penname
password:your password
is_adult:true
## default is false
collect_series: true

My Mac won't let me download and open this, I'll have to try it on my daughters (windows) laptop later.

After replying yesterday I did a bit of searching and found this : You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

It downloads it in TXT but if you use calibre it converts to a pretty decent epub/mobi.  :)

P.S. YOu have to make sure you are using the url from the 1st chapter or otherwise it doesn't download the whole story.  ;D

This tool has been removed  :(

That sucks, I was only thinking the other day of copying some of the stories I'd been following and recently completed using this.  :(
I've not used this tool in a few weeks but I'm gonna miss it as it was really useful and saved a load of hassle of reading wattpad stories on my phone.

Too true hun, which really doesn't help as a load of authors are now Wattpad for bonus scenes, writing stories under pen-names (Tillie Cole to name one of many) or doing like CoHo did write a complete book on there, but at least she had the decency to publish it on Amazon afterwards, not all authors do that.  ;)  :'(

there is this tool (for wattpad)

However it takes each chapter as a separate .txt file, so it's a lot of work  :(

Yeah, I was just about to say at least this one still works.

Actually gl@@dis if you open the folder you will find at the very bottom, that there is one more text file that has all the chapters. I didnt try to convert it in calibre but it's  there. It's quite large in size  compared to the single chapter text files.
I'll try converting it later today when I'm on PC and let you know if it looks good  :-*

I found this one last night when I went searching, but can't use it as it's only compatible with Windows and I have a Macbook
On their Facebook page they've said that it's gonna stay that way as they'd have to learn to do different codes to change it/add different functions. Oh well, back to reading Wattpad on my phone for now, until someone else comes up with a different program or until I can steal my BIL's laptop.
