Content Server Virtual Library

Quick question. With Calibre 3.0, is it still possible to specify a virtual library to use with the content server?

Thanks in advance.

Yes. You can choose virtual libraries in the browser or specify them per user in the server preferences.

So no overall selection like in the last version?

Create only a single user account and specify a VL for it, there you go, exactly the same as before.

Can you clarify how to do this, please? I can't figure it out without requiring a login. I have only a fraction of my books that I can legally share, so previously I just made them a virtual library and never had to worry about the others appearing on the content server. Now they all appear, and it looks like the only way to stop that from happening is to move to user accounts with passwords, right? Ideally I could avoid that, but I don't want to risk sharing things I shouldn't, either. Thanks.

You have to have a login. You really should not be exposing your calibre server to the open internet without a login. You could easily get in trouble if you inadvertently share a copyrighted book.

I don't see any way to specify a Virtual library for a user, a simple library yes, but I don't see any selection for the virtual libraries, or a place to enter them.

And if it's a search specification that needs to be added, then how to give a user access to more than one virtual library within the same master library?

In V2 i handled this via proxies in the web server going to different instances of the calibre server running on different ports.

You can provide an arbitrary search expression for each library visible to a user. If your virtual libraries are defined using a saved search then you can provide the same saved search to the content server.

You cannot give a single user access to more than one "virtual library". This is exactly the same as the calibre V2 content server.

In V3 you must use different users to give access to different virtual libraries. This is really no different than using different ports in V2. Instead of connecting to different ports, one connects with different user IDs.

Appreciate everyone's help and insight. Our server is not open to the internet, just a (mildly) large intranet. I'm probably just more paranoid than most around here about not sharing things I shouldn't. I can distribute passwords to our users, it just seemed the other way was "safer," but maybe that's just me. Great program! Thanks!
