Thanks.

Also, what's the best way to copy an identifier URL if you don't need the html in urls_from_identifiers? I thought of using strcat to construct it but I'm having trouble remembering what to use to extract the ID itself.

use select() to get the value of an identifier.

Question:

Code:
program:
	status = readstatus();
	times = $$#timesread;

	switch_if(
		status=='read', 'Read',
		status=='didnotfinish', 'Did Not Finish',
		status=='currentlyreading', if times >#0 then 'Currently Rereading' else 'Currently Reading' fi,
		status=='toberead', if times >#0 then 'To Be Reread' else 'To Be Read' fi,
		status=='unread', if 'readinggoal:' in $#admintags then 'Backlog' else 'Unread' fi,
		''
	)
On line 10, I'd like to change the criteria to instead check for readinggoal:{currentyear} - the obvious is just check for a literal 'readinggoal:2024' but is there a way to do this automagically?

Try using
Code:
if 'readinggoal:' & format_date(today(), 'yyyy') in $#admintags then 'Backlog' else 'Unread' fi

Ah, does a '&' work the same as a strcat in this instance? That's what I was trying but having trouble inserting it into the line.

Yes. It works like strcat(). I think in all instances, but to be sure I would need to check precedence of functions vs operators.

Here it is with strcat().
Code:
if strcat('readinggoal:', format_date(today(), 'yyyy')) in $#admintags  then 'Backlog' else 'Unread' fi

Can I create a template or plugboard to do the following?

Is it possible to create a template that can be used to do the following when importing books:
1. Ensure that author is always = last name, first name (title case)
2. Title is always title case
3. Tags can be changed into a set list of tags (convert the incoming tags to ones I want and then drop the rest)
4. Series will be listed name and series number
5. Make sure the rating field is blank
6. Make sure the comment field is blank
7. strip blanks that appear in names or titles as _


Sorry I am not a programmer and the help functions were not at my level of understanding so I do not know what syntax to use.

The best way to do this is with the Action Chains plugin. You would set up an action for each test/modification you wish, put them in a chain, then run that chain when a book is added to calibre.

Ask for help in that plugin's thread.

Simple answer for a not simple desired result: NO

If the metadata is embedded,
Calibre populates the fields upon adding. <<<<
There are tools to help tame, but that requires YOU to write each rule. Considering the dreaded VARIATIONS
Preferences:Adding Books:Adding Actions (a tab)
The whole bottom is where you start (there are none out of the box)

OTOH Download Metadata has its own configuration
Preferences:Metadata download (there are configure buttons on some forms that get you here also)
Sources to look at. This also allows you to set Cover (use choice) priority
On the Right: Is the Master Use or not use ticks
BUT
the Configure button BELOW the Sources allows you to fine tune these by Selected Source, (AKA Cherry pick )
The others are pretty self explanatory. (hover on the item for more details)

Again: These do not affect Previously Embedded at import time.

Code:
program: 

	if 
		'(In-Progress|Dormant|Abandoned)' in $#fanficstatus
		|| $#fanficstatus=='Oneshot' && $$#pagecount<30)
		|| readstatus()=='read'
	then
		$#admintags

	else
		columnupdate_admintags_readinggoal()
	fi
How does $$#pagecount<30 work with undefined columns?

Issue: columnupdate_admintags_readinggoal() adds "readinggoal:{currentyear}" to admintags.

I noticed the tag (which auto-adds books to Reading Goal addon) was showing up on certain fics where it shouldn't, specifically oneshots of less than 30 pages. I think I know why - FanFicFare calls both Action Chains and Count Pages simultaneously upon fic download, so the chain with this template runs before Count Pages has a chance to populate the column.

If I'm right and <30 doesn't include the nulls, then I'll just update the template to exclude oneshots entirely and add the tag manually.

For numeric comparisons, null (None) values are treated as zero. For string comparisons they have the string value "None".

Your template is using a string comparison (<). I suspect you want a numeric comparison (<#).

The raw_field() function has a default value parameter to use if the field is None. For example, if you want something other than zero for None you could use
Code:
raw_field('#pagecount', 100) <# 30

Yeah, makes sense... still, considering the unpopulated-pagecount issue, I figure I'll just exclude the oneshots and add them manually.
