What I can't get to disappear are all of the sub-tags under Author Awards, such as Author Awards.Edgar Award.

I tried this but it didn't work:

Code:
content_server_will_display = ['*']
content_server_wont_display = ['@Author Awards:.true']
I got that formatting from the search in Calibre. Perhaps this is the part I'm not doing right?
Unfortunately for your sanity, each subtag is considered a different item for display. To get rid of a subtag you must explicitly name it, such as in
Code:
content_server_will_display = ['*']
content_server_wont_display = ['@Author Awards', 'Author Awards.Edgar Award']
I recognize this is a pain and a maintenance headache, but the way the field selection works forces it.

I might be able to make some kind of regexp pattern, but it would need to be done in a way where there could never be a conflict between the pattern and a real name. And in any event, I won't have time to look at it for a few weeks. There is a good chance that I will forget (I do that more and more these days), so if you don't hear back from me by mid-May and if you still want such a thing, ping me by posting here.
