Titles of O'Reilly epub not shown in iPad Stanza app

I like to read my epub ebooks in stanza on my iPad, I recently found I could link my iPad to my O'Reilly account.
The problem I have is that ALL the titles for all O'Reilly epub files are set to 'epub' and not the real title of the book.
All my other epub files, from other book publishers, show correct titles.
is there any chance of getting this fixed?

  • Hi David,

    Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. We believe this is a bug with Stanza's catalog software, and will get in touch with our contact at Lexcycle and ask them to look into this and help resolve.

    In the meantime, we've confirmed that adding your EPUB files to Stanza using the following method does properly preserve EPUB title names:

    1. Open up iTunes
    2. Click on your iPad device icon on the left pane under "Devices"
    3. Click on the gray Apps tab at the top of the main iTunes pane
    4. Scroll down to File Sharing, click Stanza under "Apps",and then click the Add.. button under Stanza Documents to add your epub (see screenshot below)
    5. Sync your Device, and the EPUB should be downloaded to your iPad.

    Hope this is helpful as a workaround, and apologies for the problems with downloading directly from the O'Reilly catalog via Stanza.

    Best,
    Sanders

    Many thanks for the answer. I can confirm putting loading the books on the iPad version of Stanza works and shows the correct titles this way.
