Update to version 1.2.0

I have updated the plugin to fix the recent problems. These were caused by several changes to the book details page. I have not done a lot of testing, but it does seem to be working properly now.

Is this plugin working for everybody else? In my case, the plugin runs for an appropriate time but no metadata is found.

I discovered while I was porting it to Python 3 that it did not get any results. At first, I thought it was errors n the changes, but when I tested the released version of the plugin with the released version of calibre, it failed in exactly the same way. There were several people in the calibre/Python 3 discussion who basically said they would not update to the Python 3 version of calibre until the plugin was ported, so I asked if it was working for any of them. I had no responses.

I think this stopped working at the end of April. That is based on when the last book I added to my library which has a FictionDB identifier. The book added on 25/04/2020 has the identifier, but, one added on 03/05/2020 does not. Nor do any added later than this.

This was a few weeks ago and haven't returned to it. That is partly due to time, and partly due to the fact I haven't worked out how to solve the problem I found (the site makes heavy use of redirects). And, as no-one seemed to have noticed the plugin had been broken for over five months, I haven't put any importance on working on it. I have been far to busy breaking other plugins.

That is to be expected as the plugin has not been ported to Python 3.

But, was it working with the previous version of calibre you were using? See my post immediately before yours.

The problem with plugins like this is that the website can change and then the plugin no longer works properly until it's fixed to handle the website changes.

That is an expected problem with using web-scraping. It happens for all the metadata source plugins. But, it isn't the real problem with this plugin. The problem is that the web site changed 5 months ago and nobody noticed.

Well, I know why I didn't notice. Weird enough, one of the unexpected consequences of working from home, is that I end working more hours. No time for my library until little ago.
