How to use reading list plugin

I have the plugin installed, and configured for a device. I have an "add to" list and a "remove from" list. But I don't see how to populate the list. How can I add books to my lists? I have current versions of the plugin and Calibre.

[Store Plugin] Configurable COPS store

Dear all, We have a shared library on COPS server (https://github.com/seblucas/cops) with some of my friends, protected by a password. To simplify browsing of available books I've created a plugin to use the server as a store. The plugin should work with any OPDS server, but it was only tested on a single instance of COPS. The plugin can be found here: https://github.com/blaz-kranjc/calib...s_store_plugin Limitations:Currently the plugin only supports a single server. Ideally, I would transfo...

Is there a metadata source plugin for FF.net?

Recently FFF has not been able to download fics from FF.net due to issues with the FF.net site. FFDL is able to download fics but when imported into Calibre, there is no metadata. Is there a way to "download metadata" from FF.net? I tried searching for a source plugin for FF.net but did not find anything. Thanks for any assistance or info.

How will Calibre handle Calibre 5 only plugins?

What happens if a plugin that was written before Calibre 5 ends up no longer working on Calibre 4.23 because of no longer being Python 2 compatible? How will Calibre handle it? As I see it now, Calibre 4.23 or earlier will pull up a notification that there is a new version, the new version will be installed and screw with the existing version. Will Calibre be modified such that it will handle this issue and not show plugins that only work on Calibre 5 to Calibre 423 or earlier versions?

Fanfiction.net blocking downloads

I have discovered that Fanfiction.net is now blocking 3rd party downloads. This includes the Calibre plugin as well as their own Fanction.net iOS app. I have been in touch with their tech support on this issue and this was confirmed by them. They are also now requiring captcha to try & limit even browsing/reading on their own site & in their own app. I wanted to bring this up & make people aware. I just installed the latest calibre plugin to test it & getting the following error Status Ti...

New FFNET Issue

Dear Plug-In Authors, I'm new to the forum, but the most recent addition to the FFF Plug-In for Calibre seems to have a problem. I can no longer download or update books from fanfiction.net (FFNET). Note: I was trying one book at a time and turning on my VPN doesn't do anything. I also tried multiple books and links. None of them worked. I don't think the plug-in was broken (by me) because I haven't touched the settings. Also, it downloaded two AO3 links just fine. The error message: "HTTP Er...

Goodreads retiring API

Note on the top of the page. Quote: As of December 8th 2020, Goodreads is no longer issuing new developer keys for our public developer API and plans to retire these tools. How will this affect plugins that pull data from goodreads.com? Are they currently using the API or screen scraping?

ePubSplit not compatible with ePub3

Apparently one of the omnibus volumes I downloaded is ePub3 so ePubSplit can't handle it. Any alternative? I wouldn't mind converting the ePub3 to ePub2 but not sure how. And it's possible it wouldn't work anyway-there might be a reason it's ePub3. Or not. Still, better solution IMO would be an ePubSplit alternative that handles ePub3. Suggestions?

Anchors not reaching destination correctly

I have lots of cross-references to add to a document. Half the book is made up of Appendix items. I've set up the first and it's not working correctly. It's supposed to find Appendix Item #26, but when I click the link, (while using Chrome's ebook reader) it only get halfway through Appendix 20. The anchor link is: Appendix #26. Poplar Ridge Friends Meeting Then, on the Appendix.xhtml file I've coded: 26. Poplar Ridge Friends Meeting, July 8, 2014 Any suggestions?

Updated Plugins

Does the column on the update plugin gui for "Calibre" with the Calibre version mean that it would work with that version or better? I wanted to find out if my plugins are all able to run on the most current version of Calibre. How can I tell? I have a lot of plugins that i use all the time.

Calibre Links, library_id, UUID, and Duplicates

While adding the new Calibre Links functionality to CalibreSpy, I necessarily looked at this new Calibre 5.6 function: Code: def create_copy_links(menu, data=None):     library_id = getattr(db, 'server_library_id', None) Calibre table library_id normally has a single record with a Calibre-setup generated (theoretically unique) UUID, such as "aedee8f6-9de0-4f01-ae45-f9e82c02450e". The issue is that up to Calibre 5.6, it did not matter whatsoever to Calibre itself whether the UUID was a...
