Some time ago I noticed a "contains" suggestion.
Thus I have several "omnibus" volumes which contain several books (in a series, by the same author)
I only mention it now 'cos, I not sure what the progress is todate.
And a humble suggestion. As a completist I often use the series to see which books I still need to get.
Sometimes I forget I already own, say books 3 & 4 in an omnibus version. I guess I would like to see "green" ticks
against the "individual" works even if contained in an omnibus version.
I realise this is a complex issue (eg. short stories,
multiple authors) but I do vaguely remember something like "aliase?" has been implimented.
If anyone can think of a work-around until "contains" comes
along I would be appreciative.
Contains is already working but it does not help with the checkboxes. And aliasing is not for this thing - it is basically to get the author names sorted out....
Err...where do I find out how to use it?
Had a quick search thru "talk" and Wiki.
This link is also on the page where you add new relationships. But maybe it could stand to be somewhere on the main relationships section.
It's more than just Contained in/by. There's also relationships for retellings, adaptations, etc.
Found it! Guess I don't scroll down a "works" page far and often enough.
Now for the "green" ticks :-)
Yeah, that's the element that's missing - that and not getting recommended stuff you already have. One thing I, among others, do, is enter the contained books into a separate collection - I call mine Inclusions, others use other terms. So I get gray checkmarks, and don't get the books recommended. Of course, when Contained actually gets finished, I'll have a lot of deleting to do...but that's all right.
Same here - although I don't plan to delete them as I am putting my reviews on the individual works (unless if this somehow get accommodated down the road)
