Remove Delete Button from Server browser interface? How?

I just ran my first test of the Calibre Server. Am I impressed! That is amazing! Worked perfectly. However, I was also able to delete a book from my library with the delete button in the browser interface! Yikes. I have created some family history E-books, and was going to share those books to extended family through Calibre Server... so I would want to remove that button. How can I modify that browser interface? or set up a read-only user account? Alternatively, I will just E-mail the book...

Education nonprofit Edraak ignored a student data leak for two months

Edraak, an online education nonprofit, exposed the private information of thousands of students after uploading student data to an unprotected cloud storage server, apparently by mistake. The nonprofit, founded by Jordan’s Queen Rania and headquartered in the kingdom’s capital, was set up in 2013 to promote education across the Arab region. The organization works with several partners, including the British Council and edX, a consortium set up by Harvard, Stanford and MIT. In February, researche...

Batch/Bulk Upload to Calibre Server

I am running calibre server on a Synology DS220+ NAS, so far it works smoothly. I am just wondering whether there is an option to bulk upload books/folders to the server.

Default Library to Use

Hi! Quick question... I'm running the content server as a Linux service. Is there a way to bypass the prompt, "Choose the calibre library to browse…" and present a pre-selected default library to users? I can do it with a long URL, but I'd like to make a library book list display as the site default landing page. Thanks!

413 Request Entity Too Large

When trying to add books from Content Server's browser UI, I almost always get "413 Request Entity Too Large" error.

Changing legacygetepub… naming conventions

I've noticed on my Kobo Clara that the ebooks that I sideload through Calibre on the desktop are sorted into neat author directories with an ebook name that's legible by a human. I'm assuming that Calibre is doing this organization because books I sideload manually by dragging and dropping into the root directory of the mounted Kobo drive sit at root with whatever name they had before. However, the books I grab through the server all have the following naming convention like this: legacygetkep...

502 Bad Gateway errors on nginx server

I now have Calibre Content Server running with nginx as a virtual host, which has received a SSL certificate from Certbot for security's sake. They all run on Ubuntu 20.04 on a VPS. And I also set up a startup service that runs Calibre: Code: /opt/calibre/calibre-server /home/ubuntu/Calibre --enable-local-write --enable-auth --auth-mode "basic" --ban-after 5 --ban-for 5 --log /home/ubuntu/log/calibre.log Most of the time Calibre runs great, but I get 502 Bad Gateway error about twice ...

Calibre Server not running (Windows 10)

Hello. I'm trying to use the CC (paid version) on my Android but it never gets connected. I see that the problem is on the server side, because is also unresponsive while trying to access on the laptop. Other ports are open, as I can see from my Android device running the app Fing, but not 8080. For example, I can access SMB foders and Universal Media Server catalog. Windows Defender firewall already has calibre.exe as permitted. The log generated by calibre on debug ...

How to migrate Content Server with user annotations?

I have been using Content Server with authentication enabled on my local machine and had read several books with annotations made along the way. It works great and now I decided to move my library to a VPS (Ubuntu running on Amazon Lightsail, to be specific). I successfully set up a new Content Server with an new Calibre library, and I can now import my books into it. However, annotations I made on the local machine do not show (it is expected) since the library and its authentication are both ...

Only Calibre-Server is slow

Hi there, I am using hosted on my home server. Opening http://localIP:8080 in the browser takes up to 5 min for the UI to load. About every second reload I get a timeout. The same happens on Readarr when trying to connect to calibre-sever API. However, it is super fast when I mount the drive directly on my MacBook and open the calibre app on my Mac. The only issue is, that now all changes I do in the calibre app are not updated when using the API....

Browser Option

I love the browser option. Now that CC is just about done it's my preferred way of reading books in my Calibre library. The one thing I just can't figure out though is how to find a) the book I am reading when I return to it and how do I make sure that my latest place in the book is retained. Just can't figures those things out. Is there a location to easily find current books being read? Any help would be much appreciated.

[browser viewer] Request some small changes

Hi Kovid, thank you for making a great app. I'm using Calibre server to read books on an e-ink device. Could you please consider making some changes for making the reading experience more comfortable? 1. Could you please make the "x" symbol to close Menu like "table of contents", "configure book reader",... bigger? As big as the "x" symbol to close list of menu is nice. 2. Support Delete multiple/all hightlights option. Thank you very much

RPi server with catalogue on FreeNAS?

G'day! I'm trying to set up a RPi Content Server to manage the pile of books on my FreeNAS server. Currently the family uses Calibre on macOS or Windows but I was hoping to have just a single content server to which all the family devices (Kindle, phones, Ipad, whatever) could get books from. Having said that and started to install RPi Calibre, I'm now looking for a way to get Calibre to look outside the RPi for its 'new' database. I want it to use the one on the FreeNAS, so as not to duplicat...

[Browser Viewer] Time to read -- > Calculating

Dear Kovid, This "time to read" item in the footer is awesome, which helps me to plan my reading: finish the chapter or leave it for now. Great. But it seems it's value/ status is not synced across the devices. And that means it has to calculate again. I hope it can technically be solved. PS: if anyone has issue with Chrome/browser remembering the login password, give the "fully kiosk browser" (play store) a try.

Calibre with nginx help please

Can anyone help with setting up my nginx reverse proxy? I have a few sites running on the same box. I am by no means an expert at nginx, I've just got ideas from the internet and got it to work for emby, radarr, sonarr, and lidarr.

Calibre Server: interesting newbie questions!

My mom uses Calibre on two laptops and has a Synology DS920+ NAS on her home network. I'd like to centralize her eBook storage on the NAS and streamline her experience using Calibre Server, if possible. Two benefits that stand out are that metadata manually fixed on one laptop would instantly be reflected on the second laptop - the other benefit is that the NAS has a RAID 5 array, so nothing would be lost if a single drive failed (unlike the laptops). I've followed these instructions but haven't...

Automated workflow in Calibre?

I started using Calibre a few days ago. I installed the client on my Mac and the content server on my NAS (using bibucstriim). Both are working fine. But when I think of a server, I just think about automations. I know the client can automatically import books from the folder and add them to the library. But I would like to have that step automated from f.e. the server. That's also the main purpose of a server just like f.e. plex server. So instead of keep my laptop and Callibre on all the tim...

[Browser Viewer] Excellent on e-ink device (Poke 3)

For the first time now I use the Browser Viewer on the Poke 3, default NeoBrowser, and it works just great. I only have to change font size (to 20) and header and footer. I think I won't miss Kindle for long. @kovid , would you consider to add: 1) Battery to header/footer? 2) A "embolden text" option? I now use p {font-weight: bolder;} in the Styles. But I'm sure you will have better solution, if it is technically possible. 3) highlight color with good contrast? Wavy underline is the only optio...

content sever not working

So I don't think this is the right category for this question but I didn't know which category to post it in, sorry. Ever since I updated calibre the content server has stopped working. I've tried changing the ports and I've checked to make sure it's whitelisted on my firewall but nothing helps. It was working fine before the update. Every time I click start content server, this message comes up: calibre, version 5.8.1 ERROR: Failed to start Content server: Could not start the Content serve...

I have been using the portable version of calibre for many years on my pc and recently created a new calibre server on my synology through docker.
