ePub >> ibis reader >> no cover

When I upload my epub files to ibis reader, on first opening, the cover does not initially appear. A small graphic icon appears in the covers place. By clicking on the Title, the cover appears.

Am I formatting something incorrectly? I use Sigil to create my ePubs and follow its instructions for adding covers.

Thanks for your insights.

Does it show correctly in ADE? If it does, then it's just Ibis.

If ADE = Adobe Digital Editions, then the answer is yes, it does appear correctly in ADE.

Then it's probably just Ibis funkiness. Try it in EPUBReader, it's a plugin for Firefox so it will use Gecko to render it. If it works fine there too, it's definitely Ibis funkiness.

I looks fine in EPUBReader, ADE, and Calibre Reader. I'm sure Liza & Keith at Threepress will look into this when they have a chance. Right now I think they are involved in creating a CSS cure for cancer. - Fabe

You could also try Lucidor, from www.lucidor.org which I'm just starting to use. I haven't found anything strange yet, and it's nice to have another alternative.

Thanks pholy, I downloaded the application Lucidor, but when it came to adding XULRunner I stopped. Call me paranoid, but adding extra programs to get a program to run is a hassle with unforeseen issues.

I'll wait for Lucidor to become a full-fledged app. - Fabe

The reason why I suggested the use of EPUBReader is because that's another HTML engine. EPUBReader, being a FF addon, uses Gecko. Calibre Reader uses QtWebkit, and ADE uses whatever the hell Adobe put in there. Ibis is pure Webkit AFAIK.

So in 3/4 engines, it works. Hence, Ibis bug.

Lucidor would add no new data, since if it needs XULRunner, it uses Gecko too.

Valloric - Here are two "cover" lines of code taken from their epub files as viewed in Sigil. The first is from a file not created using Sigil. The cover appears as soon as the file is opened in Ibis Reader. The second line of code is mine. I created it following the directions in the Sigil user manual. My cover appears fine, except Ibis Reader does not recognize it when first opened.

Can you tell anything by looking at these two lines? Thanks - Fabe

I can tell you that Ibis reader is probably not smart enough to decode URLs properly. Percent encoding is probably throwing it off.

We've made some changes to the way images are handled that we're hoping has improved this. Please let us know if it's still a problem.

Valloric - You are right, %20s do throw Ibis off. I always swap them out for spaces before I upload to Ibis.

Liza & Keith - I see thumbnail covers on Ibis with my book list now. That's very nice. However, I just uploaded a new book and the same thing happened: no cover initially.

Please see my post above showing my cover entry and one I downloaded from Feedbooks, which does load properly.

Thank you all - Fabe
