No need at all to create a plugboard for series info!

My setup is as follows:
  • No Plugboard
  • Books have correct series info entered in via calibre
  • Sending books to devices save template of
    Code:
    {author_sort}/{title} - {authors}
  • Driver setup as follows:
    • Automatic Metadata Management
    • Read Metadata from files on device
    • Use Sub Directories
    • Save Template:
      Code:
      {author_sort}/{series}{series_index:0>2s| - | - }{title}
    • Shelf names:
      Code:
      #myshelves, series
      myshelves is a custom column of type comma seperated text, like tags, shown in the tag browser that I use to define additional shelves for some books
    • Create Bookshelves
    • Delete Empty Bookshelves
    • Upload covers for books
    • Set Series information
    • Attempt to support newer firmware
