Variable passwords

Post by Mibbler » Fri Oct 19, 2018 8:15 am

In addition to the list of fixed RAR passwords known to NewsLeecher, allow a combination of fixed characters and variables. One variable should be the filename, another might be the poster's name and there may be others. So you might have a password like:
"19"+%filename%

It might also be useful to take portions of a variable, such as the 3rd through 8th characters of the poster's name.

Since a known password doesn't trigger the spam filter and pause the download, it would also be good to have a separate function to do that, i.e. to download the first RAR file in a set and pause. That must be easy to toggle on and off, not buried deep in a submenu or (worse) Advanced Tweaks.
