16:57 hdl          dbs too.
16:57 hdl          jaron you're right.
16:57 jaron        sure good luck
16:56 MotleyFool   Thanks for all the help.
16:56 MotleyFool   M'kay.
16:55 jaron        gmane is a nice interface for reading back threads though
16:55 jaron        I'd subscribe to the mailing list
16:54 MotleyFool   Ok.  Where's the best place to find more help - posting to the mailing list, or to gmane.comp.misc.koha?  (or are they the same?)
16:52 MotleyFool   :-)
16:52 MotleyFool   But I want everything for free, and I want everyone else to do the work!!1
16:52 dbs          MotleyFool: Right now there's a lot of discussion on the list about the 3.0 templates; I suspect that 3.0 will have nicer looking templates, but "Spend money / Do lots of custom work" is always the default answer :)
16:51 jaron        you might ask on the list for other suggestions, but CSS and HTML template changes are all that I can come up with
16:50 dbs          jaron: right -- sort of a Koha 2.4 (by way of the zebra plugin)
16:50 MotleyFool   I guess my question kinda boils down to "How do I get as nice a looking OPAC page as the Koha Showcase libraries have?"  If the answers is "Spend money!" or "Do lots of custom CSS work", then I guess I may just try to live with 2.2.9's default or npl templates. :-)
16:50 jaron        dbs: I think you're correct on that. Right now though the KohaZOOM product is probably dev_week.
16:50 dbs          3.0 is in the process of getting pulled together for a prerelease candidate
16:49 dbs          Hi MotleyFool: I _think_ KohaZOOM is a Liblime-specific product name
16:48 MotleyFool   Tricky stuff. :-)
16:48 MotleyFool   Ok.
16:47 jaron        currently 3 is being developed
16:47 jaron        that's my understanding
16:46 jaron        dev_week is a dead end
16:46 MotleyFool   Thank you.  As I search around, I'm getting the idea that dev_week is probably the bleeding edge version of Koha?  i.e. maybe not stable, but the latest/greatest version?
16:46 jaron        and then if you have to change the templates
16:46 jaron        the other option that I would take would be to play with the stylesheets to get more what you want
16:45 jaron        might see here: http://wiki.koha.org/doku.php?id=installingzebraplugin226
16:43 MotleyFool   (I tried some different templates - they're not bad, but not quite as good as the "real" libraries have)
16:43 MotleyFool   Hmmm.  Well, I can probably handle a difficult setup if need be.  Do you know where I can download KohaZOOM then?
16:42 jaron        I'm not sure which are available now
16:41 jaron        you might try looking at your settings and trying different opac templates
16:41 jaron        a lot of the features in dev_week are in koha 3 which is under development
16:40 jaron        it's free but more difficult to set up
16:39 MotleyFool   I also see that SMFPL (http://opac.smfpl.org/) looks almost identical to NPL. :-(  Wish mine looked that nice.
16:38 MotleyFool   I see that they're using something called "KohaZOOM" - is that different than Koha?  Prettier?  Not free?
16:38 dewey        :)
16:38 jaron        dewey: botsnack
16:37 MotleyFool   Ah. :-)
16:37 jaron        don't mind him
16:37 jaron        dewey's a bot
16:37 dewey        jaron: excuse me?
16:37 jaron        really, dewey?
16:37 dewey        stylesheets are gone from the OPAC
16:37 jaron        stylesheets
16:37 dewey        stylesheets are gone from the OPAC
16:37 jaron        and stylesheets
16:36 jaron        I'm sure they do a lot of modifications of the templates
16:36 jaron        1st that's the dev_week version not 2.2 so that might be why
16:36 MotleyFool   Where do all those "beautiful" layouts come from?
16:36 MotleyFool   But my default installation of Koha doesn't look nearly as nice. Even with the NPL templates.
16:35 MotleyFool   The Koha Showcase libraries I see (like NPL, http://search.athenscounty.lib.oh.us/) look beautiful
16:35 jaron        sure
16:35 MotleyFool   Hey, one other question...
16:35 MotleyFool   Ok.  No problem.
16:34 jaron        if it doesn't do #1 you could create a dummy patron and check it out to that account
16:33 jaron        unfortunately I don't have enough experience with those parts of koha to know.
16:31 MotleyFool   2) How does Koha "notify" the librarian?  i.e. what tells him/her to go get that book off the shelf and move it to the "Reservation Shelf" ?
16:31 MotleyFool   1) Is there a way Koha can stop displaying the status of "Available" for anyone who does a search for that book?
16:30 MotleyFool   When a client makes a "Reserve" request for a book,
16:30 MotleyFool   Well, I have lots of Koha questions, so I might post a big long newsgroup posting.  Here's one, though...
16:29 MotleyFool   Oh, hey.
16:28 jaron        MotleyFool: and if you don't get a quick answer here you should email the listserv
16:27 jaron        I might be able to help
16:27 jaron        what's up?
16:27 jaron        there're koha folks around the world so you might find someone here at any hour
16:17 MotleyFool   Is this a good place/time to ask Koha questions?
