Common password

paulg I would like to produce a series of e-publications where ebook number 1 will ask for (eg) password number 187, the subscriber pays and ebook 1 is then registered. I would then like to subsequently publish ebooks 2 to 12 so that they will also require the same password as the one that ebook 1 in the series asks for, even though they will have different esbns.  Can it be done?

EBookCompiler To make them each require the same password #, they would all have to have the same total number of passwords, and the same ESBN

I haven't thought this thru, but this could be an idea...

In the first ebook (or each ebook) include a password protected HTML page.  On that page include a link or IFRAME to your web site to get the other passwords

paulg I want to try and keep it as simple for the customers as possible.  Could I just use a 'template' file set up so that each publication had the same esbn and p/w list each time then?

EBookCompiler Yep I think that would work

If the ESBN is the same, then the ebooks would probably think they are the same one.  You might want to do some testing to make sure it's okay

Double check what happens if you try to run 2 different books with the same ESBN at the same time.  I don't think it will mind, but it might

I'm pretty sure, that the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. books will never ask to add the short-cut icon to the menu/desktop if you are using this feature.  But I think this is a minor issue.

As to make the the template - just save the project for the first book,  then make changes for your 2nd book's settings and do Save As... etc.
