Issues trying to connect to calibre server

I have just installed freda on Windows and I have tried to connect to my calibre server. Unfortunatlely it is not possible to cofigure freda such a way that it produced the correct target URL.

I need something like or respectively

All I succeeded by configuring the app was something like which is not working (as it's also not a valid URL)

Can I influence the String that freda builds/uses as target URL somehow? (e.g. by editing the registry?)


Sorry about the problem with the Calibre setup.  The issue is that Freda assumes that 'path' the Calibre URL consists only of '/opds' (which is the default behaviour of Calibre, I think).  You're using a customised path '/calibre/opds' and this is causing Freda to get confused.  I will take a look at the code, and see if I can make it behave better in this case.

But in the meantime, you can get the result you need by instructing Freda to use a generic OPDS source, rather than a Calibre-customised one.  You do that by creating an OPDS source whose name does not include 'Calibre'.  Then you will be able to directly specify the URL you need:
and you will also want to supply the 'search' URL:{0}

Please post again (or email if that does not work for you.
