Moddesitt loves to write 150 chapter books (and uses Roman Numerals)
And then there is James Patterson and his myriad of rather short chapters that can easily go over 100.

The quality check plugin can report books with below X TOC entries (in the NCX). It does not scan the book.
lets say the fanficfare output epub,

count the epub files inside text, the xhtml.

or capture the information of chapter inside the first page of it, like Extract ISBN plugins work.

count the TOC created built in by fanficfare??

Count by text heading or search chapter and count results? maybe.


btw, i've collection of webnovel/online novel/serialnovel/fanfic which have a lot chapters,
there is from fanficfare plugin and there's not, but they have same thing, the text files inside separated per-chapters.

i've updated the file in library once/month, the file got replaced, the page count and word changed, and i do actually hope theres chapter count. for now i am doing it manual into custom column.

@yonkyunior - the original developer of the plugin, kiwidude, is no longer active. But, thanks to other PI developers, his PIs have been maintained at least to the extent that they work with the latest version of calibre. In a few cases PIs have been functionally enhanced when a developer themselves had the need or felt otherwise inclined, such as the Modify PI

Some users will hack a PI to add, change and remove functionality for their own purposes, but choose not to make their hacked versions the 'official' version.

As BR said, the original developer of this plugin is not active. I have made a few changes since then, but I'm sorry, I'm just not interested in doing something like that. Getting the number of the ToC entries isn't that hard, but adding a new statistic to the plugin is a significant amount of work. It isn't something I need and I'm not convinced enough of the use case to want to do it. If someone does want to do it, I'll be happy to answer any questions.

Having said that, I have a vague memory of a plugin for extracting the ToC from books and putting them in a column. Though maybe it was in the plugin request thread and hasn't been implemented. If this has been, then it might a starting point for what you want.

Is there a way to add Amazon (or other resources) from which to draw page counts?

Yes, but someone has to write code to read the site and extract the number. It isn't something I'm particularly interested in doing, but if someone is and wants some help, I'll answer any questions and add the result to the plugin.

Hi, I am wondering if there was some kind of change in the way the pages are counted because recently they are coming in about 1/2 the actual page count.

I have been questioning the integrity of my books since both "AZW3" (accurate) and the ADE versions of algorythms are both telling me that books with verified counts being about half what they should be. I have been trying to match up books from various sources to try and confirm that pages aren't missing.

Any suggestions? I like to do the estimated because sometimes books have different counts per edition or version.

ADE was always spot on, but now its totally unreliable.

Are you saying that the plugin is calculating the ADE page count at about half of what it was before? And half of what ADE shows? Or do you mean something else?

In any case, I just checked a few books, and the page counts calculated are roughly what is shown on my Kobo devices.

Wow! Can't believe I have just found this plugin! What a help it is!
I downloaded a bunch of books before my free Kindle Unlimited subscription expired and added them to calibre converted to epub. Seems like quite a few are novelettes or short stories and I was looking for a way to determine that quickly. (Nothing more disappointing for me than to load and open a 12 page 'book'!) Also, I add empty books to track audiobooks and it identified several that I forgot to mark as audio.

Hope it continues to work in future versions of calibre. Really a useful plugin!

Adding my appreciation for this plugin, and to davidfor for keeping it alive.

Actually I feel that this feature/plugin deserves to be included in Calibre by default.

I concur with jist - on both points!

Very appreciative to davidfor for continuing to support this most useful plugin for Calibre , and wonder why page count isn't already something 'native' to the application?

Update to version 1.8.2 - Calibre change and translations

Version 1.8.2 has just been released. This has two changes in it:
  • Update: Changes due to refactoring of conversion for calibre 3.27.0. Handling so it is backwardly compatible.
  • Update: Updates to translations. Missed these with the last update. My apologies to the translators for completely forgetting about this.

There is no function changes, I'm just making sure I don't get lots of complaints on Friday

The update should be announced by calibre in the next hour or so. If there are any problems, please post in this thread.

Thank You so much for continuing to update this, davidfor

I just added a ton of books to my Calibre library yesterday (Amazon has 3-month Kindle Unlimited subscription for 99¢ again, in advance of Prime Day ), and lamented that this isn't part of the core of Calibre - It should be an automatic thing that occurs when you add a book to your library...

Is this why the Count Pages plugin icon is missing from the menu bar of Calibre since I updated to 3.27.1 today? 'umm, where is the update? Ne'er mind--think I found the zip file on pg 1 of this thread. If I'm wrong, direct me please, won't you?

The update did it. Thanks for such a great tool.
