Can't get "read books" to show in catalog

I really want to have my customized column entitled "Read" (a yes/no of whether I've read the book) to show in my catalog. It would be best in the calibre2opds catalog but I don't even see an option there so I've tried it in the epub/mobi versions of the catalog to no avail. Has anyone gotten this to work, & if how do you do it?

I can get it in the CSV version though.

Also existing catalogs are not replaced as indicated. When I try that, I get this error ;

"calibre, version 0.8.4

Read the 'Catalog options' section in the FAQ for a tip on how to show books that have been read.

With respect to the error you're seeing, try deleting the thumbs cache file:
Code:
C:\Users\Slayda\AppData\Roaming\calibre\caches\cat alog\thumbs.zip
then try running the catalog builder again.

Correct - at the moment there is no support in calibre2opds for custom columns. We have not yet worked out how (or if) such support would be added.
