Use column values to determine author link template?
This would probably be considered a low-priority feature, but it appears that the default behavior for clicking an author's name in the book details is to send you to wikipedia. I've never once found that feature useful, so I took into consideration the fact that half my books were downloaded from the same publisher and set the link to send me to the author's profiles for that publisher. Which, of course, is only useful half the time.
What I propose is enabling some means for people to make an if/then argument similar to what we do with column coloring. So that we can say, "If X column has Y value, then use author link template Z."

You can set links for individual authors, simply right click the author name in the Tag Browser and select edit link.

Also note that you can set a default author link template in preferences/look & feel/book details.

I have my link to go to Fantastic fiction because this is what I use to decide between conflicting series names. Very short bios, but almost always has the full book list and new works etc. in a clickable list.
