Mendeley Folders

danis 3 years ago updated by Christian Fritz 3 years ago 1

Hi all,


I've created a Bibbase bibliography using references in a shared Mendeley group (you can find the bibliography here: http://bibbase.org/service/mendeley/42b3c9fe-3feb-364a-a5a6-ad0ff97f726b/group/6b3cbe6f-5954-3478-8b6f-f247bb28d285?msg=embed#). 


Within the Mendeley group, we have two folders: Primary Sources and Secondary Sources. The materials in these folders would, ideally, be listed on two different pages of our website.


Is there a way to tweak the Bibbase code so it only shows material from one folder within the Mendeley group, or do we need two separate groups?


Thanks in advance!

I think so, yes. You can filter by any field in the bibtex entry that is generated from the Mendeley data and Mendeley does seem to provide the folder id in that bibtex.


In this example URL I'm grouping by that id to see what's in which folder:

http://bibbase.org/service/mendeley/42b3c9fe-3feb-364a-a5a6-ad0ff97f726b/group/6b3cbe6f-5954-3478-8b6f-f247bb28d285?groupby=folder_uuids


Filtering on just the first folder id gives me:
