Storing URL of a book detail page

Hello,

Is there a built-in way to store webpage URL of books? In the book details pane, there is the Authors entry and if one of them is clicked, a web page (https://www.goodreads.com/) opens. In a similar manner, I'd like to see a link to a product detail page in the book details pane. If a link is clicked, it brings the user to the webpage.

Do I have to create a custom field for this? Or is there a built-in one already? Being able to store an associated URL with the calibredb add command would be nice.

I use the identifiers for that, as shown below:

There's also a way to insert URLs manually as an identifier, using something like
Code:
url:http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17829
That's a good question, to which I look forward to seeing others' input

This is what I've been looking for. Thank you! The screenshot really helped.

@kovidgoyal Thanks for the additional tip. For now, I'll do the method Comfy showed.
