Another user also reported me this issue. COPS worked better with older Kindle ... sad !

I'm trying to fix it with the help of the other user but that could take a while as I don't own this device.

It should !

What url did you use : index.php (to use the Html interface) or feed.php for the opds feed ?

When I was in the beta of aldiko I reported a problem with images when the catalog was password protected. It was never fixed during the beta. If I'm right (password protected catalog), then the bug is still there. You'll have to use a working alternative (Mantano, FBReaderJ, ...).

I'll maybe modify COPS to work around that bug (Sony PRS-TX has the same problem), but again I don't know when it'll be ready.

I happen to have noticed this not only in COPS. And for me it always happens in webkit based browsers. For instance if there's typographical quotes or em dashes in a page, they often don't show correct. Although I never seen this happen in Firefox or IE.

It was pure dumb luck that I tripped over the CSS setting that seems to cause this in COPS

Code:
/* Global Box Sizing and Font-Smoothing */
*, *:after, *:before {
...snipped...
    text-rendering:optimizeLegibility;
}
Adding an override such as below seems to work on both XP and Windows7 for Webkit based browsers.
Code:
.fullclickpopup .sr {
    text-rendering: [auto|optimizeSpeed];
}
PS. read as either auto OR optimizeSpeed

What url did you use : index.php (to use the Html interface) or feed.php for the opds feed ?

I tried both URLs, exactly the same behaviour.
You are right, I use password protection (basic auth via .htaccess) - I guess I could test this without password protection enabled. That's no solution for the long term, sadly

Edit: without password protection it shows the covers nicely.

Thanks for looking into it (and the Kindle issue as well). Could you tell me where I can change the source code so I would get the e-ink css as default?

Does Series information import into readers?

I have setup several series in my calibre library (Thrawn Trilogy, Chronicles of Naria) and these display correctly in the web and OPDS output of my COPS 0.6.2 install. But when I download a book from my OPDS feed into Aldiko 3.0.1 it does not show up in Aldikos Collections. Is it supposed to? I was hoping that it would.

I have tried with $config['cops_update_epub-metadata'] = "1"; and 0. Didn't notice a difference.

Am I missing a step or is this just not supported?

I also are having problems with downloading an epub.
When i try this it seems to download teh epub, but when i look at it it's only 0 kb, so empty.
I've tried changing everything in the config-file but nothing seems to work.
When i look at the url-address it shows something like "192.168.2.50//cops/fetch.php?data=1006&type=epub&id=1006".
is there something wrong with this. Do I need to change something in fetch.php ?
Hopefully somebody has an answer for me ?

did you copy/paste that url from somewhere ? there should be a db id in that url too, even with only 1 library, and I see a double forward slash. The missing db id is probably already the reason, but the double slash can also cause some programs to fail.

Apart from checking your config that you haven't accidentally typed a double forward slash somewhere, you could try setting "cops_use_url_rewriting" to 1.
This should change the download link to lead directly to the epub.

Don't have an Aldiko (am iOS based) so can't comment on that part. But I can confirm that series info gets downloaded. All of the metadata for a book that is present in the book gets downloaded to your reader, it depends on the reader how and where that info is used. Logically speaking, collections are a different thing from Series (at least they will be if stored in the metadata) so I imagine that is why series info may not show up there.

Have you looked at Calibre Companion? Folks using Android seem to think it is very useful, so perhaps it can be of help here.

Have you checked the wiki (https://github.com/seblucas/cops/wiki/FAQ) ?

Thanks At_libitum I've double checked everything in my config file from the start and saw that I had "$config['cops_x_accel_redirect'] = " "" left empty. Now I filled in "X-Sendfile" and everything works fine. I can actually download the epubs.
Thanks again and also vlad59 for your help.
By the way an excellent program. I use it with moren than 16000 epubs on my Synology and the speed is still excellent.

Actually, it does. You just need to put the userid & password in the URL, like so: https://userid:password@www.example.org/COPS

Works for me with COPS on my Aura HD 2.10.0 & 3.0.0; don't know for older versions, but as it's a standard way of doing things since way back when, I'm guessing it will.

It's a bit clumsy as you have to fully enter it every time you use it (it won't save it in a bookmark), but it does work.

You can also use login.html instead of index.php. It does the authentication with javascript and it works.

My best guess is that your $config['calibre_internal_directory'] is not empty.

Does COPS work with the Calibre Companion on Android? I tried putting in my cops url in the setup for the content server but Calibre Companion does not display any books.

Not at all. COPS is not Calibre on the web. It's just a way to show Calibre library on the web.
