Ubooquity doesn't seem to remember my reading history

Praveen Reddy 10 months ago • updated by Tom 10 months ago 5

I'm running Ubooquity on my Synology DS3617xs NAS via a Docker container.  The image I'm using is the linuxserver/ubooquity one.  

My primary reason for using Ubooquity is for its comic streaming capabilities.  I have a large number of CBR's and CBZ's.

Can someone please advise on how I can get Ubooquity to remember my reading history?  For some reason, it doesn't.

Hello Praveen,

Ubooquity tracks the last page you read for a given book.

By default the page number is stored on the server.

But there is an option in the "Advanced" tab of the administration settings that allows you to have the page number stored in a cookie (so in the browser instead of on the server).

Both should work (although the cookie option doesn't work if you use different browser or devices, obviously).

If you have any idea as how to describe you issue with a bit more details, it might give me a lead as to why the feature doesn't work in your case.

I think he means that read comics can't be marked as such.

Correct.  Ubooquity doesn't remember:

  1. which comic(s) I've read
  2. at what point I've stopped reading in a comic

By contrast, Comicstreamer does remember, by default.

Point 2 (reading progression save) is already implemented.

If you open a comic or book you already begun to read with the online reader, it should open at the page you left.

If it doesn't work this way for Praveen, then there is a problem. But without more details (errors in the logs, specific setup...) I can't investigate.
