I don't think Hydrus does what you want OP, I think the parsers only bother with the website in question and don't crawl for other places. Not sure if I'd even want Hydrus downloading zips. For example if you had a multipart zip, Hydrus would download them but rename them to the hash and then you'd need to maybe rename them to get them to extract properly. At least that's how I assume it'd work out. >>22242
Yea I use Hydrus and I like it, I didn't even know it did that to the filenames until I read this thread. Honestly it made me so curious that I tried to find out why it made file names like that and I found a reasonable explanation in the FAQ.>>22263
You're probably never going to use Hydrus and that's fine, if you prefer folder structures it's better to keep doing what you like.
But you can export files in Hydrus, and make it so the filename of the exported file isn't a hash but rather, tags so if you had a creator: title: tags.
You could export your file or files or whatever, to be named in the style you'd prefer and then share.
but like the the other guy said it's not normie friendly I probably use 10% of what it can actually do, it's enough for me though.
