I have made a simple change that will track the date of last change to the ol_wait_weeks custom column in another custom column named ol_wait_weeks_date. This isn't quite correct in that it will not show the date that availability was last determined if ol_wait_weeks is unchanged from the previous check, but it was much easier for me to implement it that way.

The Overdrive Link plugin is not the appropriate place for that feature and I will not be adding it.

There is a separate Overdrive metadata source plugin included in calibre, but I don't think that plugin has worked for a while. It used to be able to obtain covers from OverDrive.

Personally, I use B&N and Amazon as my primary sources of covers.

Do not share book details between lending libraries when caching is disabled.

Allow the Audible UK site to be configured using library id "uk-store".

Save the date of last change of the ol_wait_weeks custom column in another custom column named ol_wait_weeks_date, if it exists. (The ol_wait_weeks_date column must have a column type of "Date".)

Wow - Fast work - Thanks! Works perfectly as far as I can tell. I know it's kind of trivial, but it's nice to see at a glance how old the info is and whether to rerun the search before choosing which library to borrow from. I hope other users find it useful...

I just have to be careful not to select a blank date in that column - date columns apparently populate today's date automatically and can't then be cleared?

Right click within a date value and select "Set to undefined".

I can confirm the Audible UK functionality is working. Many thanks.

Feature Request: "not" in Title Search

I have quite a few books that I am hoping that libraries will acquire, and every once in a while I search for them. I mostly don't get anything, because many aren't even available as ebooks.

But every once in a while I get a hit, and then my hopes are dashed when it's not the right book. The problem is that then every time after that when I search, the same wrong book is found. Many of these could be excluded if I could add a "not" to the title.

For example, I'm looking for the original Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling that has the descriptions and pictures of the magical creatures. Now, though, it finds Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay.

I've also run into it with prolific authors, who have written a book with a very short title and then written other books with similar titles. The James Patterson "Private" series has this issue with Private Games and The Games.

Other books I search for sometimes return "study guides" for the real book. This mostly happens with classics, but I'm beginning to see it with more recent books, too.

In all these cases, I can screen them out with a "not this word". Maybe something like the following:
Code:
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them^Screenplay
I know this is tricky, because you'd have to do the "not" after the real search, because no site offers boolean searches, but I think it would be helpful to a lot of people.

Thanks for the suggestion. I need to think about it before I decide what to do.
