New columns for the pens

Pens have always been treated a bit as an afterthought here on FPC. There really isn’t much you can do with them apart from pairing them with an ink for a currently inked entry. But this is about to change!

As a first step there are now four new columns: Material, trim color, filling system, and price.

These columns will automatically show up when you start filling them in:

Alternatively, you can use the selector to show the permanently.


This is only the start, though! Just like inks are clustered, have reviews, descriptions, and so on, so will pens. It’s a bit of a bigger undertaking than just adding a few columns, but it will happen soon(ish).
