Add HTML with meta tags

Hi All,

First off, i just love Calibre !

I am working on making a set of ebooks with my favorite articles from Smashing Magazine by ripping the data from the site and saving it in html via php.

After that i add the page as book in Calibre. All works well, but since i have a lot of pages to do i would like to have set the meta tags automaticly, preferably from within the html page.

Is there a way to do this ?

Second: would love a feature in Calibre to just enter a url of a page and Calibre makes a ebook of it.

Regards, Erwin

calibre reads metadata from html files.

Put

<!--TITLE="dfsdsf"-->
<!--AUTHOR="vsvorv"-->
Similarly for publisher and isbn

Thank you for the reply.

Can't find what i am doing wrong, but with the tags inside the <head> or inside <body> both no results after import from html (saved page from firefox, tags are present in file, 1:1 copy of your lines). Using latest version of Calibre.

How about the feature request ?

Use any browser, save the page, drag the html saved page into Calibre. Done.

Hello together,
for me this works:

<HEAD>
<TITLE>Poems</TITLE>

<META name="author" content="Peter Miller">
<META name="pubdate" content="2005">
<META name="DC.language" content="en">
<META name="tags" content="poem, fiction, fantasy">

</HEAD>

<BODY>
...

But I also tried to fill some "private" metadata, e.g. I have a user defined column named "website". That contains the web-adress of the raw text of my homemade e-books.
I tried this in the head section of the html file:

<META name="website" content="abc.html">
<META name="#website" content="abc.html">
<!--website="abc.html"-->
<!--#website="abc.html"-->
<!--WEBSITE="abc.html"-->
<!--#WEBSITE="abc.html"-->

Nothing seem to work...

Can someone give me a hint?

Ah, the website. Tricked me too!

But this works:

<meta name="dc.description" content="Sed at sapien tempus, facilisis justo." />
<meta name="DC.date.published" content="2000-01-01" />
<meta name="DC.publisher" content="https://www.mobileread.com/" />

The "description" goes into the "Comments" (summary) box and the date published is self explanatory.

Looking at the source code (with my limited programming knowledge) I think there is a pretty definite list of exiting meta tags that can be imported (with various possible syntaxes). But I also found out there that you can freely import IDs. Something like this works:

<meta name="dc.identifier.url" content="http://www.abc.xy" />
<meta name="dc.identifier.website" content="http://www.gkl.xy" />
<meta name="dc.identifier.slartibartfast" content="http://www.thhgttg.xy" />
