Bookpedia not including cover image

Postby FineWine » Tue Apr 14, 2020 5:54 pm

Bookpedia 6.0.1 Beta 154

Just installed the latest above beta and now the cover image is not being included in search results from amazon.

This seems peculiar only to Kindle books. Even if the book is Kindle and other formats or just Kindle.

(most formats)
Phule Me Twice
ASIN: B073PM3JTM
ISBN: 9781614754596

(Kindle only)
Next to Nothing

Hi,
I'm having the same problem; virtually none of my searches include the cover image. (My Amazon searches seem to default to the Kindle version—I don't know if there's some setting that prefers Kindle—and often don't return the paperback/hardcover version, so I don't know if covers appear for the other types of book.)

I'm running Bookpedia 6.0.1/Beta 154 on a MacBook Pro with Catalina 10.15.4.

Some examples:
Apeirogon
ASIN: B07T3XGLW1
ISBN: 978-1400069606

The Benefit of Hindsight
ASIN: B07WWHQ8W1
ISBN: 978-1419743580

Thanks for any help!
Paula

Conor is aware of this cover image capture problem with the USA site. It may also have spread to other amazon countries as well.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Been over whelmed with the kids at home during the lockdown, but it's fixed in the beta version. Will be an official update in a few days.

Hello,

I am using 6.0.1 and the cover do no longer download from amazon web sites.

Any ideas?

BTW is it necessary to fill the Amazon Web Services settings?

Regards, Chris
