Metadata for series?

Hi there,

hope someone can help me ...

with my epubs I edit my metadata in Sigil so Calibre gets the right infos from the start ...

is there a field I can fill that is recognized to by the series tag inside calibre?

Greetings,

Uluhara

No, there is no standard series field in the EPUB spec, so I dont think Sigil has one either. calibre uses a simple schema to save non standard metadata to EPUBs. Just do a save to disk from calibre and look at the OPF file inside the resulting EPUB to see how calibre does it.

thank you - not what I wanted to hear, though ...

If it wasn't so sad one could laugh about it - they defined an ebook standard - and then forgot the series

how about you set the standard? Just take one of those metadata fields and tell calibre "if something is in there, past it into your series field"? Perhaps you can set an industrie standard through the back door?

Now I will go and see if I can take your opf info into the opf inside the ebook and get calibre to show them on import ...

Hrm! I had the same question. I did as Kovid suggested, but still can't see where in the .opf Calibre is saving series metadata. Any advice Uluhara? Is "type" an appropriate element in which to store series metadata?

Look for elements of the form
<meta content="series name" name="calibre:series"/>
<meta content="some number" name="calibre:series_index"/>

That's actually a very interesting concept... (setting the standard using the backdoor approach) maybe it could be accomplished

There are no inedible fish in the Calibre pond. There are, however, those that will rip your face off and horribly maim you if you poke them in the wrong place

In the Recipe Forum users are not discouraged from asking for fish, but there is a shortage of fishermen with time to do the fishing for all those who want fish. I mostly stick to "how to fish" questions (and share my fish from fishing trips I'm interested in and would go on anyway), but anyone who knows how to fish and wants to do some fishing in that pond would be gratefully received by the many hungry users hanging around the shoreline there.

I could probably learn that specific type of fishing pretty quickly, but I have no personal interest...

That's the problem. Many hungry users hanker for fish from their local area. Those fish have limited appeal except to the local palate. It takes time to catch fish and fish from distant locales tend to be of minor interest to the experienced fishermen who prefer to catch fish that will be eaten more widely.
