RSS Feed instead of Index.xml?

After generating my calibre2opds library (in Dropbox, Public, Catalog folder), when I go to view the index page (index.xml), it shows an RSS feed instead of the book catalog.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

I've had the same result with several versions of calibre2opds.

index.xml is the rss feed.

index.html is the web index.

.xml is a file extension referring to, well, XML content instead of HTML.

You are doing everything right. You just aren't doing what you think you are doing.

As was mentioned you use the .html file for a catalog that is to be viewed using a browser. The .xml file is the OPDS catalog file for use with an OPDs compatible reader app.

D'oh! Thanks for the quick reply. I simply had the "don't generate html" box ticked. I knew it was going to be something obvious.

Much appreciated.

Calibre2OPDS Fields

I have questions about a couple of the option fields.

1. I'm trying to limit my catalog to only those books I have not read. I have a custom column in Calibre titled Read. I also have a custom search named NotRead that searches "#read:false". This saved search works great in Calibre. So, in Calibre2OPDS I have "Saved:NotRead" in the Main Catalog Filter field, expecting it to limit the catalog to only those books that show in Calibre when I run that search. That's not happening. I still get a catalog that contains all my books, read and unread. Am I doing something wrong? Can I have a search that uses a Calibre custom column?

2. I don't understand what Book Details are. Is that the blurb that pops up when selecting the "..." to the right of the listing entry? If so, then I don't see all the stuff that I ask Calibre2OPDS to include. I have Tags selected to be included in in details but they don't show.

I'm running Calibre2OPDS ver 3.4 rev 305 on a Mac. Thanks again for a great product.

At the moment custom fields cannot be included in the search criteria.

It is something that I would like to add, but I find the way that the search part of Calibre2opds is coded using ANTLR which is something I am not familiar with. Unfortunately the person who originally wrote the search facility is not longer active in Calibre2opds development so cannot be consulted for guidance. I think I will pick up a reference book on ANTLR to see if I can work out what needs doing to extending the syntax to handle custom column names/

The Book Details are the page that shows up in a calibre2opds catalog when you select a particular book from the list of books.

If you have the tags selected to be shown in the calibre2opds configuration page then the should be visible in that page for the book in question. It should be similar to that shown in the part of the Calibre GUI that you mention. A screen shot of the calibre2opds page and the equivalent from Calibre itself showing a mismatch might give a clue. There may be a bug that needs further investigation.

That is the latest build that is available. I do not personally have a Mac for testing on, but hopefully Calibre2opds should perform identically to other platforms.

suddenly stopped working

Hi there! I've been happily using Calibre2opds for what seems a long time now. Suddenly it shuts down when it starts to generate catalogues (loads books ok). I've upgraded to most recent version and deleted the most recent books in case one of them was causing a problem but still no joy. When upgrading I used the zip file and put it on top of the old version and opted to "copy and replace" files. Still no joy. I'm not computer literate so simple ideas only please! Thanks for your help! ps large library!

Not sure what might be your issue.

You may get more information if you open a DOS Command Window, change to the folder where Calibre2opds has been installed and then issuing the 'rungui' command. This may allow you to see any error messages in the DOS command window.

When you say the 'latest' release, exactly what do you mean by that. It is useful to quote both the release and revision you are using.
