@Jimm I sent you a PM, thanks for taking a look!
@Ryune that's a limitation of the e-reader software running on all Kindles, not your specific Kindle, no. I think one _should_ be able to click onto the table and then drag it around, but that feature has never worked properly for me for some reason.

@Ryune - I believe cryzed is correct, but I confess I don't see tables inside stories very often (or ever really).

You might try converting to AZW3 instead of MOBI. It's a much newer format and may work better.

There is a way of getting rid of tables in Calibre when you convert the format, however it strings the table out and can run stuff together. You could try it if you'd like. See if it's an acceptable option.
In the convert dialog go to. Look and feel > layout > linearize tables.
I think. I'm out right now and typing his on my phone so I cannot check. I'll probably forget to do it later.

I've just run into an issue with the most recent update of this plugin. Or maybe the most recent update of Calibre, as I updated both the program and the plugin at the same time. But since then, for the last couple days, I haven't been able to download or update any stories. I exclusively read off AO3, if that matters, and every time i try to use FFF to download any story, it gives me this message:

Quote:
None of the URLs/stories given can be/need to be downloaded. See log for details.
And when I go to the log, this is what it says:

I've tried with multiple URLs, with various links, I've gone into the plugin settings to see if anything's changed there, but I don't see anything that's changed that would explain this. Please help?

Sounds like the expired SSL cert issue. See FAQ:

https://github.com/JimmXinu/FanFicFa...e-errors--help

Let me know if that doesn't do it.

Yes, thank you, that seemed to work. But simply going to the AO3 home page in edge didn't seem to work, I had to go to the story I was trying to download. Since I normally use firefox, am I going to have to use edge to visit every single page I want to download, or should I be able to download/update AO3 stories I haven't visited in the browser? Just curious.

I dunno. Try it and find out.

I would expect once per site to be sufficient. If it isn't, it might help to restart Calibre or even reboot windows.

Code:
[fanfiction.net]
skip_author_cover: false
Since this is clearly a one-off, I'm going to suggest using that setting while downloading that author's stories and then change it back afterwards. Or create a temp library, whatever you like.

If you find other authors with similar issues, I'll look into a more general fix.
I was wondering, if I don't use the image from the author as cover for the stories, could I use it in my normal library?

We discussed what to do about this author at a much earlier date.

Author: https://www.fanfiction.net/u/439186/SivanShemesh

If I don't use the author's image from FF.net as cover for the stories, I can use this in every library?


Code:
skip_author_cover: false
My original question is on page 104.

My original question is on page 104.
The original question was about avoiding an error caused by the the author’s bio containing poor HTML. As far as I can tell, it’s been adequately answered.

You may put the code:
Code:
skip_author_cover: false
...in your personal.ini in every library if you wish, but it will allow stories to use the author cover, which sounds like the opposite of what you want. skip_author_cover:true by default.

Thanks, I had read it as the opposite.

Merry Christmas and thanks for a fantastic plugin and you patience.

Right, so, just realized that I forgot to actually give my review of the Kindle Oasis 2 with FanFicFare.

So, it works rather well all things considered. Kindle has a little progress bar that is really nice when tracking your progress in a given story. When you update a story through FFF this progress bar is reset to 0% however your reading location is preserved and a 0% progress is not normally displayed unless you opened a book and left immediately.

The bad part of this though is that actually finding books requires you know what you are looking for off the top of your head. The "recent" order you only get newly uploaded items and items you have recently read. Not recently updated items. So you will probably be best served by putting anything that updates into a collection for ease of discovery.

You may also want to set up a custom column with a "yes/no" condition for email tracking. I personally only really decide to start following something after I've read what already exists so it is very nice to be able to just check Calibre if I am receiving email notifications of updates for not.

So yeah, I honestly, I quite like it in comparison to my old PRS-950. I was worried about the size and shape of the screen but it isn't as bad as I thought it would be. It's pretty slick for page turns and so far I haven't had many problems with fics that don't use wonky formatting.

And speaking of formatting. I've notices that a lot of formatting from Xenforo sources seems to be disappearing. Not so much things like italics and bold but I've noticed that when something is supposed to be right justified it isn't properly carried over. Any way to fix that?

Thanks for the review. It sounds like it's (mostly?) the same as my Voyage

Maybe? I'd need to see an example.
