Anyways, since a series of books will typically have the same genres throughout, it would be great if tags in certain columns would get appended to all books that share a series with the selected book when the plugin is run.
FWIW you can copy the metadata from one book and paste it into one or more other books via the Edit Metadata->Copy metadata and Paste metadata options.

The shortcuts you see are custom shortcuts set by me. You'll get an "Are you sure?" popup if you paste into multiple books. You can control which columns DO NOT get pasted with this Tweak

You can also use Bulk Mode Metadata Edit to Add/Remove from all selected books
Look at the options on the Bulk mode screen

Thank you for the suggestions, I am aware of both of these methods. Unfortunately I am looking for something a little more automated than manually doing this for 800+ books...

Let me give a little background of my use case. I am running the content server on my vpn and accessing the opds catalog on my tablet. I wanted another entry that lets me browse by Genres and then find series with genres.

Unfortunately, on the opds calibre server, User subcategories are not treated as nested. So having subcategories for specific genres leads to having each subcategory being a separate entry at the landing page of the opds catalog.
so like, with having subcategories for Action, Adventure, Fantasy, it looks like this on the main page:

(the Searchbar)
>By Newest
>By Title
>By Authors
...
>By Genres.Action
>By Genres.Adventure
>By Genres.Fantasy
...

I wish it would only display the Top-Level "parent" categories so all of the ">Genres.X" entries would be combined into a single entry. Then
I could just use the User Categories plugin and add series to subcategories...

@zaroz - just so you know

Almost all of the optional plugins you see here were developed by someone who needed the functionality who was willing to support other users, as well as enhance and maintain compatibility with the calibre core.

Out of curiosity, would a plugin, in theory, be able to tell Calibre to convert from an epub even when an original_epub is also present?

Just wanted to gauge interest in a plugin. I've cobbled together a plugin that parses the comments (description) of a book and adds links for nouns that have a Wikipedia page. It's currently ugly, but works. If there's interest, I'll clean it up and release.

Is it possible to customize the list of nouns to only use selected ones? If so, that may be useful.

Hopefully the cleaned-up version also doesn't strip formatting so badly.

Plugin that takes in a number of links and converts them to epub

It should use reader view of firefox and save html. Transforming a number web links.. Make a ToC with Title and name of web page etc.

I use reader mode if I like an article, save the html page. Load it onto empty epub editor, remove unnecessary code of firefox and create ToC. and make it kfx & use it on my kindle.

I actually use it for magazines that aren't available for fetching on calibre. I pick some links based on title.

So far, I've got the parser to not strip formatting. Working on adding a whitelist function.

I already once asked about this issue, but had not given clarification.
I was wondering if it would be possible to make a complement that from this page (https://www.tematika.com/catalogsear...ohn+Katzenbach) can be obtained the price of the book and that in a column Personal put me the price and in another personal column the date of consultation.
Today I am loading this data manually as seen in the image.

You might be able to use Import List with a custom template

But that would involve doing the same thing I'm doing now, looking for the book on that page and uploading the price and date by hand in a csv and then uploading it to Calibre.
I understand what it raises.
I was thinking of a complement where the user could add the page of interest to him to enhance his library.
Let's see if you follow me ...
The plugin to which the site page could be added to be able to consult. (I understand that it depends on how the site has the information stored, which would be a problem)
And you can collect the value of the book that would be related to your ibsn to place it in a custom column and in another that puts the date of the query.
In this way, suppose that a month you want to revalue your library, the complement is run and it will have the updated price or if it does not find the record of the book, I will leave you the last price and date of the consultation. .
How the goodreads_rating plugin works with grading in numeric format.

The Import List plugin can work on a web page. It will read the page and use the template to get the data from the page. There are plenty of examples in the plugin. Some might not work now because the page has changed. How easy it is to create a template for a new page depends on how the page is structured. Looking at the source for the page, that page looks pretty easy. Each book is within a li tag, and classes used are simple.
