Question Calibre series index

I'm trying to include Calibre series meta tags in my EPUB opf, and am using something like:

Code:
<meta name="calibre:series" content="My series" />
<meta name="calibre:series_index" content="25" />
On import, Calibre recognizes the series just fine, but it sets the index to the lowest available number (rather than 25 in the above case).

Advice?

You should probably ask this in the Calibre forum, not the Sigil form.

The syntax is different depending onwhether it is an epub 3 or 2. I suggest you add your epub to calibre, then change the series number then export it using save to disk, then look at what calibre did to set the series number.

Thanks. EPUB 3, so got it to work using:
Code:
    <meta id="magazine-issue" property="belongs-to-collection">CollectionID</meta>
    <meta refines="#magazine-issue" property="collection-type">series</meta>
    <meta refines="#magazine-issue" property="group-position">25</meta>
    <meta refines="#magazine-issue" property="display-seq">25</meta>
I left in display-seq because that seemed a better fit for an open-ended series, but Calibre works with group-position.
