Kindle cover meta thingy?

There's some kind of <meta thing for the cover that his to go into a Kindle book, but it's been so long since I've finished one that I've forgotten what it is and where to put it. Any help?

You just have to set the semantics - right click the HTML and cover image files in Book Browser and select 'Add Semantics/Cover'.

Its also a good idea to call the cover image file 'cover' I.E. cover.jpg.

Sigil's new 'Add Cover' tool adds the semantics automatically.

Setting the Add Semantics to Cover didn't do it. And neither did adding "<meta name="cover" content="../Images/Cover2.jpg">" in the <head> portion of the cover page, which I found on a KDP forum. Previewer gave me a warning, No Cover...

I had to restart for a Windows update, then I had to update Sigil, then when I reopened the book file, it complained that the cover file was not well-formed. So I took your advice, clicked Add Cover, clicked OK, saved the book, reopened it in Previewer, and...all's well, no complaint about a missing cover and there it is under Go To. Thanks a bunch. (Oh, and no meta thingy in sight.)
