Yes, the job completion question dialog is part of the calibre code. It uses a common queue which prevents completion dialog boxes from popping up over each other. The change is already in the calibre repository on GitHub and so should be in the next release.

what to use for library ID:
my local library - Gloucestershire UK has a gobbeldy gook URL in chrome bookmarks & I've never managed to acheive auto sign in via remembered passwords, neither in chrome or in IE10

http://gloucestershire.lib.overdrive...en/Default.htm

is that what I have to add ???- seems not as the plug in throws it out when I test it ( & throws away the card ID & PIN, - not helpful ! )

NB if I begin from scratch, and be careful not to loin into the main council web site by mistake, I eventually find a more sensible looking URL of
http://capitadiscovery.co.uk/gloslibraries/ with a different layout!

this is where' I'd renew loans for paper books etc, it is separate from the overdrive site

so: what is the process for determining the correct library URL as needed by the plug-in ?

I don't know if you're interested, but:

@cybmole

You need to use just the website itself, which would be http://gloucestershire.lib.overdrive.com/

From the help button in the plugin:
Quote:
You can find libraries supported by Overdrive by selecting the Library Search tab at http://search.overdrive.com. For Overdrive powered libraries the library-id is the host name of the library web site (e.g.: freelibrary.lib.overdrive.com for the Overdrive site of the Free Library of Philadelphia). This can be found by examining the browser address bar after surfing to the library.
Incidentally, this is much more bookmark-friendly -- in fact, if you look at http://capitadiscovery.co.uk/gloslibraries/ it has a link on the side for Ebooks & Audiobooks, which has this overdrive link, not the one with {ever-changing-UUID}/10/50/en/Default.htm at the end.

As eschwartz pointed out, the Library ID must be populated with only the host name portion of the url. In your case that is gloucestershire.lib.overdrive.com. To make it easier to configure I will change the plugin to extract the host name if a full url from the web browser is copied and pasted into the field.

I don't see a good way to add this, but I will give it some more thought.

Yes, I will add this in the next release. Also, Thanks for helping out cybmole in this thread and in the other thread that he started!

thanks for the help. one more question / suggestion:

I can match my books with those available at a specified library & get shiny new IDs for the matches.

I can also do that with "check for books that can be recommended" option ticked.

but how to I keep the results separate i.e. if I go back to a book & see that it has an overdrive tag, how can I tell whether that's an "available at library" tag or a " someday they may decide to buy a copy" tag ?

When that configuration option is checked the plugin checks for both available and for recommendable books whenever an Overdrive search is performed. The results are kept in separate identifiers for each book. 'odid' is the identifier for available books and 'odrid' for recommendable books. The plugin menu has options under 'Select previously linked books' to show which calibre books were found to be recommendable by doing a calibre search for the 'odrid' identifier.

Overdrive response errors

I have two libraries configured and both login successfully when I check the Overdrive Link job details. However, for one (which just happens to have a branch ID#) I seem consistently to get the following message in the results whenever it is checked for books even if I know the book exists:

Overdrive response error (Excessive number of results returned by search)

Hoped to search this forum for a list of error conditions found in the job details, and especially this one, but have not found.

Can anyone shed any light on this, please?

A

PS: full text of related error in the job detail follows:

That's the error you get whenever a search has way too many results -- usually when there is a very ambiguous author like "C.S. Lewis". The plugin searches several different options, though, including with title and possibly series?? so it will usually get the right books anyway.

The critical line there is: "Response: page 1 of 235. 4683 total results"

Just ignore it.

Well I can't quite ignore it as it happens on every book at that library and I don't find books that I have checked by hand an know are there.

Note that the Overdrive Link seems to be checking only for the last word of the title ie "descent" vs "blind descent".

So the question is, Why am I getting excessive responses from this library and what can I do about it?

Something seems to be going wrong in a way that causes the search to always return all 4683 available books for that library. I don't have credentials for that library so I tried it without them and the plugin seems to work properly for me in that case.

To help diagnose the problem could you try removing the branch id and credentials for that library in your configuration and try again to see if it returns better results? That will help me narrow down the cause of the problem.

Tried without credentials and branch ID. Same results; 4683 books.

That library is working for me. There must be something different between our setups. I am running calibre 1.21 64-bit under Windows 8.1. What is your runtime environment?
