Trouble with LC_Genre

I'm having some challenges with getting the plugin to find and add genre information.

The (scrambled) file in question is attached. The Library of Congress record is here: https://lccn.loc.gov/2011037487

I think I have configured the plugin correctly, but I'll be jiggered if I can figure out what is wrong, since I don't get an error message.

IS this enough to help me start to figure out what's not working as I expect?

The "LC (Library Codes Plugin) Genre" uses either the #ddc or #lcc (per your customization choice) to look up the LC Genre in the plug-in's internal table.

It does not use the internet for LC Genre. Your epub file has nothing to do with it. LC uses metadata in the current Library's metadata.db file.

If your book has no #ddc and you customized "use DDC for the mapping to LC Genre", then nothing will happen. Ditto for #lcc.

I assume that you are clicking the menu item for updating LC Genre for the selected books. It only does it when you say you want it to do it.

See the LC plug-in menu ToolTips (only visible if you have not "torn off" its menu).

Ok, so I started over with this, deleted the plugin, deleted the extra author info column, restarted my computer, reinstalled the plugin and ran it to collect both the DDC and LCC entries. I unchecked the extra author info field in the config screen, saved everything, and ran the plugin to collect the two field entries.

The first time, it insisted that I create the extra author info field (apparently, unchecking it doesn't stick), so I went back to the config and clicked the button to create the field and ran the plugin again. I re-ran the plugin (how that I have both DDC and LCC entries) again.

No genre information was collected, regardless of whether I had LCC-to-Genre mapping or DDC-to-genre mapping selected.

Am I doing something wrong?

As I said before, you must use the menu option to update LC Genre. Read the ToolTips. If you have not provided LCC-to-Genre mapping yourself (DDC-to-Genre comes standard with LC), then there may be nothing to map. See the ToolTips. Try using DDC instead of LCC to see if you get good mappings, which would confirm that your problem is that you have not uploaded any mappings via the LC menu for that.


ToolTips are visible by hovering your mouse over the menu and its submenus.

Ah, there we go. As with most things, a lack of understanding on the user's side.

I was not understanding that the genre mapping is technically a 2-step process: Get DDC info then manually select the genre mapping item.

Thank you for your patience, and for an excellent pulgin!
