Dynamic extraction path

Post by mostyle »

Is it possible with SAB to have a dynamic completed path?

Ex: My downloads go to "/downloads/complete/" now. What I'm wondering is whether or not categories will append to that path?

So, "/downloads/complete/{category}/Files...

I found this (viewtopic.php?t=17138) post but it references relative paths based on the base path.

Thanks!

The program cannot dynamically generate that path based on some template. If you want the category name as part of the path, simply setup the per-category path that way (in the category settings, obviously).

To add: in category settings you can specify both relative and absolute paths.

Thanks to you both for answering. I was not aware about the paths inside the categories.

That should accomplish what I wanted.
