Thanks for this! I had no idea why import list suddenly stopped.

Update to version 1.4.0

Version 1.4.0 of the plugin has been released today. The changes in this release are:
  • Fix: Open CSV in "Universal new-line mode" to handle mismatch of files and OS.
  • Update: Use BeautifulSoup from calibre base.
  • Fix: Goodreads, SFJazz and Wikipedia predefined sources for page changes.

This is basically the same as the recent beta, but I have made the BeautifulSoup update compatible with older versions of calibre.

If you see any problems with this release, please report them here.

Up until this point I have been using fictfact to track what books I have read. They have closed down so I have a csv file with all the information from that site. Unfortunately they list the first and last name of the author in separate columns. I can successfully import the csv file with just the last name but can not figure out how to get the first name without retyping 1500 entries. I tried adding a column called comments with the first name then having it as #3 (#1 title, #2 author last name, #3 comments, #4 series title) but even in the preview it came in fourth and did not show up at all when imported to Calibre. Any suggestions?

Do you have a spreadsheet program? Use that to create a new column with LN concatenated with FN (IMHO Fn<sp here> Ln is easy to construct)
No spreadsheet? Libre Office is Free and there is versions for most common OS)

I would load the CSV into a spreadsheet, concatenate the given and family names into a singe column - probably as 'family name, given names', i.e. as author_sort, and then save as a CSV with ';' as the separator. Then I'd use that CSV in Import List.

Thanks all. I had to reformat the author name columns to be text but then it worked great.

Somewhere I set up something wrong since even though the last name of the author appears first Calibre is sorting by the first name. But I suspect that is a problem with my calibre preferences rather than a problem with the plugin this board is discussing.

Quality check Plugin: Fix: Author sort
will flip selected records
(I also us Fix: Format author initials (you configure the PI to find those that don't match your prefs, then use the Fix to make those selected comply)
