Very cool plugin! Thank you!

I belong to a couple libraries, one of which is part of a consortium. When logging into the consortium's Overdrive library, I have to select which branch I belong to before I can enter my card and pin number.

Obviously you can't code in all the different branches for all the various library consortiums. However, I noticed each branch has its own unique URL. (In other words, once I select which branch I want I'm then taken to the page to enter my card and pin number. THAT page has a unique URL, different from any other branch.) I tried entering that URL into the hostname field of your plugin, but when the plugin went off to search it didn't like the value I entered. library2go.lib.overdrive.com is quite a bit different from secure29.libraryreserve.com/... after all.

Perhaps you could add a new field to the customization for these consortiums where we can enter the URL for the login page of our unique branch?

Example:
Oregon Digital Library Consortium (ODLC)
http ://library2go.lib.overdrive.com/

ODLC login page with drop-down menu to select your branch:
https ://secure29.libraryreserve.com/library2go.lib.overdrive.com/80F91AB0-A5FE-41B7-8704-B2BEBE3A39E8/10/438/en/SignIn.htm?URL=MyAccount%2ehtm

Examples of two different branches:
Eugene:
https ://secure29.libraryreserve.com/library2go.lib.overdrive.com/80F91AB0-A5FE-41B7-8704-B2BEBE3A39E8/10/438/en/SignIn2.htm?branchid=120&URL=MyAccount.htm
Portland:
https ://secure29.libraryreserve.com/library2go.lib.overdrive.com/80F91AB0-A5FE-41B7-8704-B2BEBE3A39E8/10/438/en/SignIn2.htm?branchid=125&URL=MyAccount.htm
