If I enter a website address, eg http://www.charlierose.com/, it works, but if I enter file:///E:/_Sandpit/CharlieRose/ I get Charlie Rose's wikipedia entry

Yet if I put the same folder links (via paste from clipboard) into book comments it works fine

There must be either something 'blocking it' or I'm missing something obvious - I suspect the latter - I shall try a bit harder.

BR I don't think it supports (blocks?) Folder Browsing. You probably need a Index.htm
What you show works in the address box of firefox: and firefox does show the directory contents in that folder

thanks td - I worked it out, folder links work fine, just like they do in comments - see update in previous post - it was a link resolution 'timing' issue

I submitted code to restore the selection and update the book details after Manage Authors.

Now, the question is - can I update Author Links from the CLI, I can't see anything,
No, there isn't a way using the CLI to update either of the author sort or the author link fields in the authors table.
Quote:
@chaley, can you confirm that I should put my folder links in to the author.link column in metadata.db - I can write a powershell script to do that.
Yes. I don't see any data integrity triggers on the authors table, so modifying it outside of calibre should work. Of course, be sure calibre isn't running when doing the updates.

@chaley - I really didn't 'expect' you to change it - it was pretty obscure and I should have figured it out sooner But... I understand why you would want to

Of course - and backup the db etc.

I just 'discovered' that the context menu on authors has an Edit link for <whoever> option, maybe the same thing could be made available in the context menu of the author field in book details - I often run with the Tag browser closed.

Thanks for your patience

I tend to run with the Tag Browser closed (I like to show all my chosen columns) and find it a slight annoyance to have to open it to get to the 'Manage' context menu.

Am I blind and just missing it in Add to Toolbars?

As an Alternate access : How about (also) attaching the 'Manage Menu' as a (right-click) context to the 'Tag Browser' Icon? Then there would be no need to actually open the Tag Browser

I would have suggested making the Tag Browser 'dockable', but after the problems in Sigil (and on XP), gave the idea a pass

I have my default author link set to

http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/search/?searchfor=author&keywords={author}
under preferences>look and feel.

It is very useful to me when checking series info and other things.
When I have differnet series names or duplicate numbers on different books for a series I go with fantastic fiction so at least I have them standard

Another alternative is maybe the Manage «Column» could be an option in the context menu of the «Column» Title on the main spreadsheet - a'la the Quickview «Column»

BR there is a number of Context for Column Management already:
You can Hide,Show, Shrink, and the one I think is mis-Labeled: Add (I think it should be name Customize Columns as you can do any column edit/create/modify action there)

Links are only available on Authors (I mistakenly thought they were also available on Publishers and Series) - see attachment for what I was thinking - not sure what one would do about multiple authors - I'll leave that to the developers to fathom

If the Enhancement in the following launchpad request is forthcoming then I'd use it most of the time. It gives a separate link for each author which sidesteps the multiple author issue mentioned above ==>>> https://bugs.launchpad.net/calibre/+bug/1186192

In light of the multiple authors issue perhaps putting Edit Author Link in Author(s) Title context menu may not be worth the effort - especially if it can be done from book details.
