@ogcjm - sorry for the delay. I see what you mean, I haven't ever noticed it as I don't ever choose the option to overwrite authors but sure enough it happens with that book you helpfully provided a link for. I will see if I can figure out a fix.

Edit: Ok, I see the problem. Goodreads must have changed their website to use a ligature for the ellipsis now, so it is … instead of ... (I already had code in the plugin to handle this situation, but not for that type of ellipsis). New version up soon...

I started noticing a bunch of errors for some of the book covers in log. Here's an example:

Can not install Goodreads Plugin

If I am posting this in the wrong place I apologize. I tried searching for my error and did not see anything. I was unable to install Goodreads plugin. I uninstalled Calibre and started all over. All of the other plugins I wanted, I installed with no issue. However I received the following error when I tried Goodreads. Can you please advise? Thank you!!


calibre, version 0.9.24

So I've recently been having a fair number of searches fail, on books big enough that I was fairly confident goodreads would have decent data on. For example, this book just came up empty for me, with this response:

Code:

So, to try and get around it, I put the goodreads:12637490 ID in manually, and run again, still failure:

And it says it can't find title/authors from the book page, though from what I'm seeing it looks perfectly filled out. So I try putting in the ID of another edition, and it magically works just fine. So I assume some sort of glitch on a few of the edition pages, which now that I understand I can work around easily enough, but I don't recall this being an issue before and I'm seeing it often enough I thought I'd bring it to your attention

fridgey - working perfectly fine for me. I tried an empty book with just the isbn:9780373210459 and got a match. I also tried with no ISBN but an author of "Aimee Carter" and a title of "Goddess Interrupted" and that got me a match too.

Perhaps one of the Goodreads servers was having problems or something which you were unlucky to hit.

Interesting, works fine for me now too... well, their servers certainly have problems often enough for that to be the case. *shrug* Thanks for taking a look at it anyway

Comments :
Mladá Slovinka Veronika se z omrzelosti nad stále stejným životem i z pocitu vlastní zbytečnosti rozhodne spáchat sebevraždu. Ve svém dosavadním životě se vždy snažila dělat to, co od ní očekávali druzí, neměla odvahu naplnit svou vnitřní touhu a riskovat neúspěch. Teprve když se v sanatoriu pro duševně choré dozví po nezdařené sebevraždě, že má poškozené srdce a že pomalu umírá, probudí se v ní instinktivní vůle k přežití a Veronika začne o svůj život bojovat v prostředí lidí, kteří jsou úředně potvrzenými „blázny”. Při vyprávění Veroničina příběhu se světoznámý brazilský autor opírá o vlastní zážitky z dospívání z riodejaneirské psychiatrické léčebny.

It appears that Goodreads does not have a cover for that ISBN.

That is not a calibre 'failure'.

Configure more than 1 (language relevant) search source for images.

Try other methods to obtain a cover image. Like using the 'Search the Internet' plugin (I use the search Google for Images choice, with good luck) and drag the image I like to the cover area in Calibre

Hi. Sorry, maybe I do something wrong, but goodreads does have the cover.
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...rozhodla-zem-t
I have linked it specifically with this edition.
I can download the cover manually, no problem. Since yesterday I could have done it with this great plugin.
Sorry for making troubles.

You are not making trouble. You reported an issue (and you did some research ).
Sites do change and the plugins may need adjustment from time to time.

If you have these kinds of troubles, be sure to update the associated plugin and Calibre.

If the update CAUSES the issue and a rollback to the previous version does not: Raise the flag by posting here (for plugins) and filing a bug report if it is the Base Calibre that seems to be the issue.

There are many-many pieces that must fit together perfectly for all to work

I too have trouble retrieving covers from Goodreads. I was getting them until a few days ago, but now it won't retrieve. I get a message that says failed cover.

Reported bug in Calibre plugin for goodreads download of covers

It seems, that covers can not be downloaded in many cases, in comparison to few days ago.
Tested with both (latest) versions of calibre. Seems, it is not the source of problem.
As the plugin was not uploaded, it is with high probability also not the source of issue, the source seems to be on Goodreads, they probably did some changes few days ago (I would say two days).
Please investigate, this is maximum from user-point of view. I am not programmer.
