I am having trouble downloading from two websites. Both sites are really large archive sites for stories, so I only want to download the stories I'm going to read. I keep trying to find filters that are generic enough for the whole site, but still only get what I want.

On the first site, I have no problem getting the stories by using the directory filter. However, I can't seem to get the list of stories.

The url is: http://www.fanfiction.net/l/59/0/0/1/1/1/0/0/2/0/1/ . I tried using the directory filter /l/, but only got the first page. I then tried no filters and allowing it to run through. I still only got the first page.

I'm also having trouble getting the author pages. The url is: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/929840/ . I can get the page by using the directory filter /u/. but I can't seem to get the actual story list. I think it might be some sort of java script. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to get it. I tried allowing all types of media including archives, user defined, and other and I still couldn't get it.

My last problem is on another site. On this site I am able to get the story list, I just need to figure out what filters I need to ues. However, I can't seem to get the story beyond the first page. On the multi-paged stories, you have to click on a button to get to the story. I tried filtering the file name for both view_st and/or view_ch as those are the generic file names for each story, but I still only got the first page. Then I went back to the website and tried to get the story from the next page in the links but it still only produced the first page.

If you can help me I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm not sure if you need any more information, but I'm not sure what to do anymore. ..

I made a Project for you to load the first site - I allowed /s/, /i/, /u/ directories. You can find it using the Tools - Published Projects menu - Books section.
