Quick question about adding and converting a hyge db

Hi,

i am new to caliber, so i have a few questions. I tried to search for some but ended up empty handed so hoping i can get some extra information.

I was wondering if it is possible to add an extensive collection of 20 000 + pdf to calber and then automate a batch conversion so i dont have to add and click on every book so i can convert them. Also what format to use to retain all the graphics from a pdf? Lrf or the the sony format (prs-505)?

My second question regards html conversions, i read a bit on it as there is some information on creating a map file for the web site and then using a conversion software, but is it possible to convert the whole web site while retaining all the images and maintaining a correct formating for viewing the ebook on a portable device? Have a few web sites, and html s with both images and html files i want to convert. Making the dummy map file seems eashy enough, but how can your reformat the whole thing so it doesn t look like a mess? And what is the best software to use?


anyway, any help is appreciated thanks!


Very cool software btw !

Yes, you can import whole folders at a time. You can also batch convert.

As far as converting web sites for your reader, search for the Bookit thread. It is a firefox addon that does just that. Also, calibre has a web2lrf tool that helps here, but I admit I have never used it.
