Link to another book from Comments

Dear Kovid, I manually insert a link to another book in the same library, the link is like this: Code: #book_id={id}&library_id={library}&panel=book_details If I click (on PC using mouse) or tap (on Android) the "loading" never finishes. But "open on new tab" works instantly (lucky me). Is it fixable? And it certainly doesn't work in the Main Calibre, but I don't mind this.

Moon reader pro page options

Hello I have been using MRP for a very long time and started using the Amazon Kindle and was wondering is there an option to MRP to have the pages flip like a book and not scroll?

An automated way to add my own CSS that won't be touched by calibre

I'm looking for an automated way to add my own CSS at the end of calibre's conversion process. I know about extra-css but I would like this CSS to be unmodified by calibre's process. I wonder if someone could guide me towards a way to batch-insert my own !important CSS after calibre is done with converting a batch of ebooks. I know this may be against the spirit of Good Practices or whatever, but this would be very helpful for my personal use.

Create Virtual Library with a sort?

Perhaps it is not possible.

He has a cigarette because of course he smokes. He has a blue linen jacket over a cashmere striped sweater. He has a linen bag for his...

Truth in labeling

Is one of my office plants “Dumb cane” or Dieffenbachia? I know what I prefer. Ah, the joy of being an older, ever-more-crotchety gardener. You can actually watch the birth and death of trends you never went along with. There was an interesting article in an industry mag many of us receive online, Greenhouse Management, about plant labeling. It’s by longtime garden writer, C.L.
