Question Book Jacket Metadata

Is there any way to specify which metadata items are included in the book jacket? For example, can you exclude the publisher and date published?

You might be able to make a 'hacked' copy (put THEM in <the config folder>\resources\jacket of the template found in the calibre2\resources\jacket\

Just consider that this:
1) may be incompatible with some plugins (Modify EPUB? )
2) must be in placed in the Config folder or Updates will clobber

That sounds way too complicated for me but thanks for the suggestion.

It will not be incompatible with any plugin.

There is no "might be able to make a 'hacked' copy", if the files are placed as you indicated GeckoFriend may customize the files to his/her hearts content.

You are correct that the stylesheet and template must be copied over to the configuration folder \resources\jacket\ any changes made to these simple files located here will keep through any update. I have my jacket stylesheet.css and template.xhtml in my configuration folder (for me it is located here: C:\Dropbox\Calibre Portable\Calibre Settings\resources\jacket\) per this section of the manual.

GeckoFriend take a look at the files it may not be as complicated as it sounds.

Good Luck.
