Version 0.1.14 is online now. It fixes some problems with prior releases Download at google code

If you are using ComicRack to organize your comic library there is sometimes the need to enter data depending on rules. So you might want to set the series group to Gotham for all Batman books. Or you scraped your data from Comic Vine (using the excellent ComicVine Scraper) and discover that some of the information in the ComicVine database is not correct. So you want to set the publisher information for the first 200 issues of Walt Disneys Comics and Stories to Dell instead of Boom. This plugin will complete all these tasks automatically.

The hotfix 0.1.14 is online at google code. It addresses some errors in previous releases. It is highly recommended to install this hotfix!


Please read the manual for more extensive information.

Download the plugin and manual from Google Code

After heavy testing (big thanks to 600WPMPO and Casublett) I would say this version is stable.

The nice application icon was created by 600WPMPO.

Here is my current and very much W.I.P. config. I'm more setting up templates and such, but it gives an idea on what can be done and has a handful of genuine corrections.

I prefer if you post them here. More threads might be confusing.

If you'll agree I will collect your samples rules on the wiki

@ Faba: good work!

Just personal interest: was it hard to understand the logic of writing rules?
