I, too, would like to add my thanks for this brilliant plugin, jhowell. Your efforts and time contributed are greatly appreciated. It's absolutely indispensable for Calibre users!

I love this plugin, it's really helped me discover more books by authors I enjoy.

One thing, Scribd search has stopped working. The link it searches may show the author as a suggestion above the search results box (as is the case with https://www.scribd.com/search?conten...=anne%20carson) but the search results say "We couldn't find what you're looking for..." for every author, even authors I know are on there.

Thanks!

I will take a look at it when I get a chance. Scribd changes their website in ways that break this plugin fairly often.

Thank you! I'm seeing some Scribd results though some still seem to be missing.

An example:

Eleni Sikelianos has one book on Scribd but their book doesn't show up in discovered books. Unlike the previously linked author they don't show up as a suggested author though their book is the first result under the Books tab on the Scribd website here:

https://www.scribd.com/search?conten...i%20Sikelianos

The plugin finds books on Scribd by doing a search by author name to find the page listing that author's books. (I found that just searching with an author name under "books" produced too many extraneous results.) Unfortunately Scribd doesn't index all of its authors so some are not found. Eleni Sikelianos is one of them.

Searching for her by author name gives no results: https://www.scribd.com/search?conten...i%20Sikelianos

I would have to rework the entire way searches are done on Scribd to fix this and doing that just isn't worth the effort for me.

I have borrowed books from OpenLibrary, added them to Calibre, and am trying to link them to Open Library using this plugin.

https://openlibrary.org/works/OL1596...SuperPaint_1.1
https://openlibrary.org/works/OL2960...oftware_design
https://openlibrary.org/works/OL1501...sh_version_3.0

I have:
- ticked/enabled OpenLib
- enter login details
- ID set to: lendinglibrary
- all ebook formats ticked
- I choose "search for selected books" with one book selected

i expected it to find the book at OpenLib, add the id, and enable me to use that link.

but I get this:

Help!

I expected it to work similar to the Good Reads plugin?

Also, the "customise plugin" window is taller than my laptop screen, so it's very difficult to click the OK button.

It appears that you have multiple author names separated with semicolons in your calibre library. You need to separate author names with ampersands for calibre to recognize the individual names.

"lendinglibrary" is a small collection of public domain books available to anyone. The ones you are searching for are not in that collection.

Change the library id in the configuration from "lendinglibrary" to "inlibrary".

Sorry, I don't have a solution for that.

Oh! How silly of me, thanks for the "inlibrary" directions. It wasn't clear at all what I should set that to. Maybe add a note to say "most people will not need to change this value".

I temporarily change the resolution of my laptop to get to the OK button.

Finally, the semi-colons, this is how the authors come in on books from OpenLib. I'll look to see if there's an easy/automatic way to change them.

You could also look at the "Splitting multiple author names" tweak in the Calibre preferences/tweaks settings, which looks like it could be used to add semicolon to the author seperators.
