Yes, sure.

If you're ready with an item type, it's not just a "copy-paste" situation for the other similar fields? Or do you test each one of them?

In most of the cases it is. But after some interesting :S experiences especially with the Number field I am much more careful now.

Thanks for test it this much. :)
I think if you create some very beta version we could help with the testing, at least I have only scraped data in a lot of comics, so I can rescape them easily after the test if something is wrong.

Will not forget you with the next beta. Should be ready in a couple of days after the final release of the Backup Manager is online. Thank you for your support!

Thanks, that's an important plug-in as well. :)

How is this more easy than simply manually typing in the alternate series & count in the Info dialog? I mean, in the example above, you are making rules for a SINGLE issue. Not productive, this. :unsure:

But it would make sense like this:
<<Series:Gold Digger>> <<Volume:1996>> <<Number.Range:32,39>> => <AlternateNumber.Calc:{Number}-31>> <<AlternateCount:8>>

:P

Is this will be possible later?

<<Custom.Era Number.Range:3,10>> => <<Custom.Era Number.Calc:{Custom.Era Number}+1>>

So we could easily add a new issue in the middle of this:

0
1
1.1
1.2
2
2.1
2.2
2.3
3
4
4.1
4.2
4.3
5
6
7
8
8.1
8.2
8.3
9
10

Not sure yet if this will work. The Custom Values are all stored as type string in the database so how should the DataMan know how to interpret the plus sign?

E.g.:
if the old value of EraNumber is "3"
and you use the rule <<Custom.Era Number.Calc:{Custom.Era Number}+1>>
how should the DataMan decide what your expected result is ("4" or "31")?

At the moment I think it would be best to handle the custom values strictly as strings (as they are stored in the database). This would deliver the most stable results.
