Question Adding new ids links in right-side box and Book Details window

I searched on "Identifiers" and didn't find an answer for this, so if I missed the answer I apologize in advance.

What I would like to do is add some new identifier links to the right-side box (and by association the Book Details window) in the Calibre window. Right now, it will shows links for, ISBN, and Google. How can I add links for new Identifiers like 'baen' or 'isfdb'. Examples:

ISFDB is the Internet Speculative Fiction Database. All publications are assigned a number that is used in the URL like this: That url will pull up the book 1632 by Eric Flint. I would like to be able to add 'isfdb:277373' into the Ids fields and have a link for the ISFDB site show in Identifiers on the right-side box (and Book Details window).

For the Baen webscription site, the links look like this: So the identifier in the Ids field would look like 'baen:p-379-1632'.

Is this something I can do myself, or is this something that needs to be hardcoded. I tried looking everywhere I could think of, but couldn't find any information about this.

If a template could be set up for the links, that would be best, because then people could add in links for any web sites they wanted.

Thanks in advance,
