Kavita+ features are usually discussed in the discord, however, I have some Github issues open and am looking forward to information from the community before moving forward. If you want to discuss this, please leave a comment there.

Kavita+ Frequently Asked Questions

How to fix bad Matches

A series can often have many names and users may put their own spin on each one, scrobbling might fail to match. In these cases, there are two options: Correct the Series name or Localized Series name to match AniList or add AniList or MAL weblink to the series. Once done, you can clear scrobble errors and wait. Scrobbling should take after this. You should also bust the cache:

  • v0.7.14+: Open the edit series and press Force Refresh then Save. Don't forget to clear Scrobble Errors after.
  • others: In Admin -> Tasks, which will clear bad rating, recommendations, and review data for all your users.

Some reviews look broken

This happens due to a bug in AniList's API. I have created an issue and will monitor it. This should be rare and you can use the Open Review button to read the review in AniList. MAL reviews do not seem affected.

Some series cannot be found

This can happen if AniList doesn't have the series (or you need to rename/add a weblink). If AniList doesn't have a series, you can work with them to add the series.

I don't see any ratings, reviews, or recommendations

As of Kavita v0.7.4, only series that exist on AniList will provide external data. I am actively scouting for Comic and Book providers (hardcover POC planned) to provide more information. If you think you have something I can integrate with, please raise it on the feature request site.

AniList activity feed isn't showing my progress

AniList currently doesn't show activity if only Volumes were read. You can read more about it here (opens in a new tab). You can validate that the Volumes do update in the Series on AniList.

License already tied to another server

This can happen when you change hardware, OS, or re-install Kavita. As of version v0.7.13, you can reset your license by going to the Kavita+ tab and using the Reset button then Save to retie your server.

I have a cool idea for Kavita+

Like all ideas with Kavita, please raise it on the GitHub features discussions (opens in a new tab) and allow the community and I to expand on it and prioritize it.

Discord Id

If you want access to channels in the Discord server for Kavita+ users, you need to link your Discord user ID with your Kavita+ license. Under the Kavita+ tab, you can do this. Note, that this is your discord user id number, not your discord username.

To do this, go to Discord Settings > Advanced and turn Developer Mode ON. discord

From your user profile on the bottom left, you can click and get your user id. It should be a list of numbers. discord_2
