Bug Description

The ISBNDB plugin for metadata downloads no longer works. It appears that the ISBNDB site itself has changed. They also no longer allow free accounts for lookup (language on plugin configure about how to get a key would need to be updated). It may also be that the API itself has been updated -- there is a news entry about updating API documentation.

System Details:
Calibre 3.21
Windows 10

Thanks.

Given that they no longer allow free lookup, I'm afraid I am not interested in maintaining this plugin in calibre. I'll remove it from calibre for the next release.

If somebody else wishes to maintain it, it can always be made into a third party metadata download plugin.

Changed in calibre:
