This gives me a workaround, but it would be good to figure out what's broken with my main calibre program.

Calibre portable at 0.9.44
Main Calibre is latest edition: 2.85.1

At first glance that would suggest your firewall was permitting <wherever>\Calibre Portable\Calibre\calibre.exe to access The Internet, but it was blocking C:\Program Files\Calibre2\calibre.exe from doing the same.

But given version gap between the two (pre August 2013 and May 2017) it could be something entirely different. Suggest you install latest calibre portable, you can have different versions of portable installed should you need to retain the existing version 0.9.44.

Thanks for the plugin

I have a feature request: Would it be possible to retrieve and store the "Original Title" value?

I have a catalogue of books in different languages and it'd make it a lot easier to match up the duplicates

Thanks for your time.

Probably not. The metadata source plugins are limited in what they can update. They can only update a set of core metadata attributes and can't touch the custom columns. I suspect what you would want is to put the original title into a separate column and that isn't possible.

This is possible. "Original Title" can be saved in comment and later (as second step) copied/moved to custom column.
This idea is used in LubimyCzytac plugin.
Plugin for copying/moving data from comment (METAmover) is in same thread (post #3).

So the plugin should save in comment:
Code:
<p id="tytul_oryginalu">Tytuł oryginału: <em>' + ORIGINAL_TITLE_FETCHED_FROM_GOODREAD + '</em></p>
METAmover wrote for myself and for Polish users, but after minor modifications, it can be adapted to multilingualism and multipluginity. We can set an international standard for storing and reading data from comments – then this option will also be available in other metadata source plugins.
