script or program to download images from a community? [Jun. 9th, 2004|12:01 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions
Is there a script or program to download all images posted recently in a community?

Ideally it would categorize them at least by the poster's username, possibly using folder names.

I made an attempt to just use wget for this, but it doesn't seem that wget's combination of features handles the livejournal site design (for this purpose).

Thanks :)

I love the cheerful music on the About screen -- and so does my cat! :->

I wasn't able to get it to download any images except user pics.

I wasn't able to find a way to get it to just be concerned with recent posts (of great concern with large, long-standing, high-volume communities)

It shold download all the pictures that are displayed in a journal. Newer seen of any problems with that.
For large communities you can "hack" .links file that is created when you indexing journal for community. Just sort this file by post ID and erase all old posts...
Or leave only a few links there and then press "Index" again - it will re-index last 2 monthes.
