By "FF", I assume you mean "Fantastic Fiction". I have just tested this here with no problems. It is possible they have fixed it in the time between your post and my test. Or they have multiple servers and one is wrong.

Also, as you have just reinstalled Win10, a CA might be missing and waiting for yet another update to be installed.
Thanks guys! Yes, it was Fantastic Fiction. I normally never use IE so I tried visiting FF with it and that's all it took to fix it - no reboot or even restart of Calibre needed!

Aa a side note I just enrolled in Tim Buchalka's Udemy Python class (on sale for $10 this week) so hopefully I'll eventually be less of a nuisance...

Thank you for the plugin! I'm trying to find a way to import my Goodreads reviews into Calibre, unfortunately, as davidfor pointed out, due to the GR API limitations the GR sync plugin cannot import longer reviews, but he suggested I try with the import list plugin to get the job done (again, thank you for the tip!). I installed the plugin on Calibre 2.76 and exported my GR library on CSV.

Problem is, I'm doing something wrong because I still can't import my reviews.

1- I deleted all the books/rows without review and some useless columns on Google spreadsheets to avoid problems with the CSV excel characters encoding and saved a new CSV.

2- I clicked on "Import List", opened the CSV tab and added my edited CSV (see attachment). In Columns to import, I checked my custom-created review column, set the position and hit preview: everything looked perfect.

3- Next step, I manually matched 8 books, all the others were matched. Then I hit next and finish.

4- After I hit finish, I got a list of marked results in Calibre which matched the books I wanted to import the review of, but there is no review! The field/column is empty, both the automatically matched books and the manually matched show no text (see attachment).

What should I do? Thank you for your help.

Hi,

I love this plugin and it has been crucial to keeping up with my libraries and goodreads. However I have noticed that it has been having a bit of buggy issues.

First, it pretty much always disappears behind the calibre screen when it is trying to manually find book in the library. I have to shrink Calibre and then restore (via the clicking on the corner of the screen to show the desktop) it for the plugin to show. It takes a lot of extra time.

Second, it often selects a different book to check than the one I select. The books it shows are nowhere near the books I select. So, I don't know what is up with that.

So that's the problem with the bugs.

Now I have a feature request, probably can do it already but am not sure yet. There are a lot of books that ALWAYS need to be matched manually because the csv author name or book names are not easy enough to match. I would like to use another field to check for books. I have a Goodreads or ISBN custom column and would like that to be a choice to use when matching books in the library. Or another column that has been designated for a title to use when importing but not the title I keep for my library metadata.

Any chance that could happen?

Thanks!

At step three, press the middle button on the right side. It looks like a star and has the tool-tip "Update metadata for the selected books in the list". This displays a list of the metadata columns shown with a checkbox. Only the columns that are checked will be updated.

It looks like Import List stalls with a large amount of entries. I tried my full csv file of about 3000 rows first, and calibre froze up. I left it for 12 hours and nothing happened.

Now i used a csv with only 100 rows, and it also seems to have frozen. What is teh limit of entries one can import? or is there some setting that i am missing?

Sorry, I don't know. I think I have done a hundred or so, but I don't use it that much. I don't remember that any of the steps took to long. What step was it up to?

Thank you davidfor, I selected them all with a CTRL+A, clicked on the star "update metadata" button and I finally managed to import my reviews! Thank you so much!

ISBN

Could you add a ISBN fiel? I think that is the very importan fiel to add. The rest you can get on calibre with it.

Thanks

As BR said, ISBN is there. But, the import is extremely customisable. What metadata fields you import depends on the import source. If that source contains the ISBN, you can import the ISBN.
