I've installed Thunderbird and had planned to use this both as an rss-reader and an email-client to use for calibre.

But when I move a message from the rss feed portion to the inbox of the mail portion, even though I can see the link in the mail program, Calibre doesn't pick up the link.

I've attached a screenshot to show an example.

Can it be added so it's possible to see the line called "websted" and the following link? Websted means wesbite.

Thanks

First of all, Calibre does not interact with Thunderbird - it uses its own client to connect to a mail server. What you can do is to have Thunderbird move all fanfic notifications to their own server-side folder. This is usually only possible to do if you have IMAP access to your mail server - if you use POP3 you are out of luck.

Secondly, because Calibre accesses the mail server, it does not see mail the same way you do in Thunderbird - for instance, the mail headers are (AFAIK) not localized to your language. This means that your question about the "websted" can not really be implemented directly... unless you wish to rephrase your feature request as "please make FanFicFare capable of reading a RSS feed, such as the one Thunderbird can provide?"

I really recommend using a mail website such as Zoho.com (not affiliated to them, but a happy user) for your fanfic notifications. Set up rules in Zoho to move notifications to a "Notifications" folder, and have Calibre get mail using IMAP and that folder. Bam! Works great. If you are active in the fanfic community and not a lurker like me, you will have to have two accounts and swap between them when following stories, which is a bit kludgy.

Hope this helps!

EDIT:
Possible feature?

I would like to update fanfics when the number of story chapters have increased, even if the total number of chapters have decreased. This is currently happening for me with Marked for Death: A Rational Naruto Quest. Not sure what category causes problems - maybe a configurable parameter such as:
Code:
do_not_count_threadmark_categories_when_deciding_whether_to_update = Staff Posts, Informational, Side Story, Omake
or
Code:
only_count_these_threadmark_categories_when_deciding_whether_to_update = Main, Side Story, Omake

If this

would be possible that would be fantastic.

I think it's an imap server as I use my google mail in Thunderbird, but I don't know how to set-up this:

This link should have info on setting up rules:
https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6579?hl=en

If you use labels, they should be considered folders for IMAP, based on this link:

I already have labels on but it doesn't collect the links anyway because it can't see the link in the way it's set-up from thunderbird.

if it is not currently capable perhaps this can be added to the wish list ...
FanFicFare has a ton of cover generation options. From your short description, I can't tell what settings you are using well enough to offer specific advice.

Personally, I have a Generate Cover setting named FFDL, and I use generate_cover_settings in personal.ini to apply it to anthologies:
Code:
[epub]
add_to_generate_cover_settings:
 ${anthology}=>true=>FFDL
The 'Allow generate_cover_settings' checkbox at the bottom of the Generate Cover settings tab must be checked.

There is already a feature for not including configured categories of threadmarks:

Code:
## xenforoforum has categories of threadmarks.  This setting allows
## you to leave out categories you don't want.  Skipping categories
## will also speed downloads as categories other than 'Threadmarks'
## don't use Reader Mode.
## The last known list of categories is:
## Threadmarks,Sidestory,Apocrypha,Media,Informational,Staff Post
#skip_threadmarks_categories:Staff Post
Trying to change the chapter count for purposes of update decision while still actually including those chapters is more complex than I want to deal with for an unusual corner case.

I'm not very interested in doing anything special for RSS feed.

However, if you can copy an RSS message into an IMAP folder such that it looks like an email and mark it unread, I believe FFF will pick it up.

Not a problem, when I found out it didn't work as I had hoped.

Thanks for your dedication.

Thanks ... I created a cover for Anthologies and replaced the "FFDL" with that name and now have a unique cover for Anthologies ...

if I drop the "=>FFDL" portion does it use what is coded in the Generate Cover Plugin by Kiwidude
