CategoryX.PostScript not being added #158

Maybe I missed something but I can't get queued items to set the correct post scripts. I followed nzbToMedia's instructions.

Here's some of my config:

Category2.Aliases=TV - HD, TV - SD, TV*

I installed Nzbget through Synology (community repository), which comes with a GetScripts and nzbToMedia folders in /usr/local/nzbget/share/nzbget/scripts.

If I use the select dialog in PostScript fields, the folder gets added along with the script name (e.g. GetScripts/, but it's my understanding that Nzbget also searches any directory in my scripts dir (non recursively), so I must not add the path.

I also understand that config changes don't apply to queued items, but after saving and reloading and adding a new item through Sonarr or CouchPotato, the queued item doesn't have the scripts I've chosen in Postprocess as if the category didn't match, even though the queue shows the correct category (i.e. movies or tv respectively).

By the way, it actually matches the script, just not the others in GetScripts or nzbToMedia. Should I add the folder to CategoryX.PostScript fields after all?

What am I missing?

Well.... I just tested without removing the path names, using the "Choose" dialog and it works now.

But, shouldn't we change this in nzbget.conf?

The scripts in the list must be separated with commas or semicolons. Only filenames without path must be used. All scripts must be stored in directory pointed by option <ScriptDir>.


To this assumption I also read in Script consisting of multiple files:

If your script consists or multiple files, put the script and all related files into a subdirectory within ppscripts-directory. NZBGet scans the first-level subdirectory of ppscripts-directory and will find your main script file (the file containing script definition signature). All other files will be ignored. You can also created subdirectories in your script-directory. These subdirectories will not be scanned.

You are right, this is misleading. Paths relative to ScriptDir were mean. I'll rephrase it. Thanks.
