I'm back with another question!

I know Calibre allows you to search for fandom and relationships via the search bar - which I love!

However I'd like to set up custom columns for these. I created two columns, and ensured they were configured correctly in FFF. Relationships is set to Relationships, and fandom is set to Category.

However I'm wondering if I've input the columns wrong now, as nothing is appearing. I've added both the Relationship and Category columns as "Long Text, like columns, not shown in the tag browser" and interpreting the column as HTML.

I'm fairly certain I've done that wrong, so any advice there would be appreciated.

Is there a way to sort this so that the fandom and relationship for every fic will automatically appear, as doing this manually may take some time.

Thank you!

FYI, I would recommend against putting those in Long Text fields in favor of Tag-like text as a general rule. They aren't long texts and Calibre makes it easier to edit tag-like text columns. YMMV.

Just configuring the columns in FFF doesn't fill columns. Remember I said:

"Note that FFF only populates Calibre columns on story download or update. "

I've made a relationship column as tag-like text. I've also selected a fic and tried to update it to see if that would work, but it told me there was nothing to update, and the relationship didn't show in the column.

I tried downloading a new fic, and it worked fine, the relationship appeared.

So now I'm wondering how to make the rest of the relationships for each downloaded fic appear.

Ahhhh... please ignore my previous post. I think I have sorted it now.

My brain is just scrambled today.

Thanks again!
