02:04 wasabi     im still really inspired by how much the perl devs continue to evolve perl
02:04 wasabi     i dont think theres ever been another language thats gone thru such a re-think
02:06 wasabi     "Perl5 also had this built in. Just use the debugger and type x \%hash. Then you don't have to put in Data::Dumper and print statements and then have to take them out."
02:06 wasabi     thats a new one for me..
02:06 chris      lots of scripts, dont lend themselves to the debugger
02:06 chris      (as the next comment points out)
02:06 chris      pretty much all our cgi ones don;t
02:07 chris      not easily anyway
02:07 wasabi     right, i click to that comment even..
02:40 wasabi     friday fun....
02:40 wasabi     http://www.lasvegassun.com/videos/2010/aug/02/4179/
02:41 wasabi     poi-gloves ;)
02:42 chris      heh
02:43 chris      thats quite clever
02:43 wasabi     that one's for you hunny.. ;)
02:45 wasabi     ahh , its worth watching again for the ending - some of those kids are flyinggg up there!
02:47 chris      whenever i see a bad haka like that
02:47 chris      i have to go watch a real one :)
02:47 chris      like
02:47 chris      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6V1eQx0aBo
02:48 wasabi     ha, i love the bad ones even more!
02:48 wasabi     such a mixed-bag of performance/confidence...
02:48 chris      :)
02:49 wasabi     everyones a star, in their own little way
02:50 robin      reminds me, did you see this: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/all-blacks/3997100/
02:50 robin      thought that was a great way to prank kids :)
02:50 chris      yeah that was fun ;)
02:50 wasabi     oooh, your ones the real-deal!
02:51 wasabi     so fierce !
02:52 chris      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1aBrJxQ7uQ is pretty cool too, specially at about the 3min mark
02:52 wasabi     i would def. make a a lego character out of that!
02:52 chris      heh
02:54 wasabi     that little chubby guy in the middle - 1st row, my fav..
02:55 chris      yeah hes right into it
02:55 wasabi     cheers for that!
02:57 wasabi     and robin too, tis a sweet-hack, that one :)

09:44 magnus     i know the feeling
09:48 magnus     actually, the fog has been hanging low in my neck of the woods today, so it's not quite as warm as munin thinks, but it's clearing up now, so hopefully...

11:51 jwagner    Hi Amit
11:51 jwagner    and kf
11:52 kf         hi jwagner :)
11:56 jwagner    Hey, Amit -- since you're here... You sent a patch on January 20 for a Lexile search on the OPAC advanced search page.  I can't find any indication that it was ever pushed. Do you know what happened to it?
12:01 Amit       jwagner: hmm i don't know i have to check RM
12:02 Amit       jwagner: i m also making lexile/reading level search with system preferences
12:04 jwagner    Amit, sounds interesting.  I'll keep an eye out for it.
12:06 Amit       jwagner: sure
12:07 Amit       happy weekend to all
12:11 jwagner    Can someone test a scenario for me on a current head server?  I tested on mine but I'm not entirely sure I had it set up right.
12:11 jwagner    If an item belonging to another branch is checked out to a patron, then checked in at a different branch, the system properly triggers a transfer message.  However, if the item was not actually checked out, but run through checkin at a different branch, it doesn't trigger the transfer message
12:24 owen       Do people like the modal MARC view offered in the OPAC when XSLT is on?
12:26 * owen     is mostly surprised by it because he was expecting to see the standard MARC view
12:27 * owen     wonders what problem was being solved by its introduction
12:30 jwagner    owen, "modal MARC view" ?
12:30 owen       When XSLT is on, you have two MARC view tabs in the OPAC. MARC View and Expanded MARC View
12:30 jwagner    Yes
12:31 owen       The one I refer to is what is labeled "MARC View" when XSLT is on
12:31 owen       http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modal_window
12:31 jwagner    Oh, OK -- you're talking about the child window, not the MARC layout itself?
12:32 owen       I'm talking about the modal window view, not opac-MARCdetail.pl
12:33 jwagner    The child window has certainly been a source of irritation -- once you've opened it, the browser back button doesn't work as expected.
12:33 * owen     had never noticed that.  A new thing to be annoyed by!
12:33 jwagner    A lot of my users have noticed it.  Loudly.
12:36 owen       I should ask the Koha mailing list who likes it and why
12:51 owen       jwagner: Your question about check-ins triggering transfers?
12:51 owen       What you describe sounds like the behavior we've observed in our live Koha system which is behind HEAD by a few months
12:52 owen       If it still does that in HEAD then I'll be disappointed.
12:53 * owen     is disappointed.
12:54 jwagner    That's what I'm trying to identify -- where the problem came in.
12:54 owen       Bug 3536
12:54 munin      04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=3536 blocker, PATCH-Sent, ---, chris, ASSIGNED, Checked In item requiring transfer does not consistently trigger transfer prompt
12:54 sekjal     jwagner: I'm seeing consistant behaviour with that on some of my systems, as well
12:54 jwagner    At current head?
12:54 sekjal     yes
12:55 sekjal     well, okay, 4-5 commits back
12:55 jwagner    That's what I wasn't sure of -- not sure I had my policies etc. correct on my head test server.
12:55 owen       gmcharlt: Do you know anything about the patch pending for that bug?
12:55 sekjal     it seems to be related somehow to HomeorHoldingBranch
12:55 jwagner    If you'll forgive the mention :-) the system functions correctly iN LEK, but not at our harley level and not in current head
12:56 jwagner    So whatever broke it happened roughly between March (?) 2009 and October 2009
12:56 owen       Hm, then the fix probably contains sensitive customer data.
12:56 jwagner    Hah
12:58 jwagner    Has anyone applied the patch in that bug report?
12:59 owen       it doesn't apply because of a kohaversion.pl conflict
13:00 * owen     will try to edit
13:00 * owen     tosses in some social security numbers for good measure
13:01 gmcharlt   owen: try the  bug_3536_holeorholdbranchreturn branch
13:01 * gmcharlt notices that he mangled the branch name, but anyway
13:01 gmcharlt   would appreciate testing - you'd have to add the syspref manually
13:02 owen       "When set to 0, check-ins get dropped down a hole"
13:05 owen       Hmm... Why am I not seeing that branch listed?
13:05 sekjal     owen: http://git.librarypolice.com/?p=koha-rm.git;a=summary
13:07 briceSanc  hello
13:09 briceSanc  Do you have the same problem : If i use Pazpar2, the advanced search page is unavailable.
13:11 sekjal     gmcharlt: branch pulled down, and I'm beginning testing
13:13 jcamins    Good morning, #koha
13:14 * chris_n  grumbles about his coffee being cold
13:17 jcamins    Has anyone contacted the general ndmso mailbox at LC about machine-readable MARC21 specs?
13:18 owen       What are the two different HomeOrHoldingBranchReturn options supposed to do?
13:20 * jwagner  has to run off to another meeting now :-(
13:20 owen       One option initiates a transfer and the other does not?
13:21 owen       ...and how is this new preference related to the existing " AutomaticItemReturn " one?
13:22 sekjal     just ran through a quick batch of tests on the patch.
13:24 sekjal     settings: two libraries A and B.  Item from A.  Patron from A.  Did not manually add the new syspref before hand.
13:24 sekjal     checkout A, return B => transfer message
13:24 sekjal     checkout B, return B => transfer message
13:24 sekjal     checkout B, return A => no message
13:25 briceSanc  good morning jcamins !
13:26 briceSanc  Do you have the same problem : If i use Pazpar2, the advanced search page is unavailable.
13:28 chris_n    briceSanc: I ran into that problem yesterday, but did not have time to investigate
13:28 chris_n    maybe check to verify pazpar is running
13:32 briceSanc  pazpar is running. the problem is if i use "OpacGroupResults" in System Preferences, i can't go to "Advanced search" in OPAC, the system return "No Result found!" instead of "Search for: keyword..."
13:35 jcamins    owen++ # for enlittling the OPAC's login form and explaining how to do it
13:35 owen       :)
13:35 * owen     is still waiting for "enlittling" to catch on
13:37 sekjal     ran the tests for bug 3536 again, with homeorholdingbranch set to the other value.  Same results as above
13:37 munin      04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=3536 blocker, PATCH-Sent, ---, chris, ASSIGNED, Checked In item requiring transfer does not consistently trigger transfer prompt
13:45 tcohen     hi every1, if I want to construct a query for an specific branch do I have to append branch:'branchcode' to my query? or isn't that enough?
13:46 tcohen     (using zebra of course, from the staff interface)
13:53 sekjal     next round of testing: homeorholdingbranch = home, homeorholdingbranchreturn = holding
13:53 sekjal     checkout A, return B => msg: transfer to A
13:54 sekjal     checkout B, return B => no message
13:54 sekjal     checkout B, return A => kind of messed up
13:54 sekjal     first a message to return to A, and it's marked in transit A to B.
13:55 briceSanc  bug 5099
13:55 munin      04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5099 blocker, P5, ---, gmcharlt, NEW, Avanced Search page unavailable when OpacGroupResults is used
13:55 sekjal     checking in again changes the message to return to B, transit message stays the same
13:55 sekjal     checking in at B clears it, and item rests with homebranch = A, holdingbranch = B
14:01 * jwag_mtg checks back in between meetings
14:02 jwag_mtg   sekjal, so if an item is not checked out but is run through checkin at other than its owning branch, does it now trigger the transfer warning?
14:02 sekjal     jwag_mtg: depends on the setting of HomeOrHoldingBranchReturn, I believe
14:03 sekjal     I've been testing checkout/checkin scenarios
14:03 sekjal     which in some cases trigger a transfer message, resulting in a second checkin
14:03 sekjal     or, in one case so far, a third checkin is required to get the item to 'settle down'
14:04 jwag_mtg   But the theory would be that if the syspref is set to home branch, and an item is not checked out to a patron but is floating around the ether, so to speak, is found & checked in at a different branch, it should trigger the transfer warning?
14:05 sekjal     I'm not sure the intention of the syspref in that regard, but I believe that that is a fair statement
14:05 sekjal     there are way too many system preferences that seem like they should be factored into this
14:06 sekjal     HomeOrHoldingBranch, CircControl, AutomaticItemReturn, and now HomeOrHoldingBranchReturn
14:08 jwag_mtg   Why doesn't AutomaticItemReturn make it work properly?
14:08 sekjal     ::shrug::
14:09 sekjal     this is starting to look to me like a situation where we may want to pull this out of sysprefs, and into it's own Admin page
14:09 sekjal     providing a matrix where libraries can configure these behaviours to their liking
14:10 sekjal     not volunteering to do this project, mind you
14:10 jwag_mtg   Oh, darn :-)
14:10 jwag_mtg   Anyway, thanks for testing.  If I can get our dev team to free up some time, I'll get them to put this on one of our servers & check it too.
14:11 sekjal     checking in a book from Library A whilst at Library B yields no message (with HomeorHoldingBranchReturn = holding)
14:11 sekjal     but it does change the holding branch to Library B
14:11 owen       sekjal: It would help if we knew what the two options were *supposed* to do
14:12 owen       I still don't understand why these cases shouldn't be covered by the AutomaticItemReturn preference.
14:13 jwag_mtg   So maybe the simpler fix would be to make the checkin obey AutomaticItemReturn?
14:13 sekjal     changing HomeorHoldingBranchReturn to 'home' does not change the behaviour I just described
14:13 sekjal     yeah, I'd like to see a spec on what the intended behaviour options are and how to set them
14:13 sekjal     makes it easier to determine if the code 'works'
14:14 sekjal     my testing at this point is purely descriptive
14:15 jwag_mtg   But very useful. Thanks.
14:15 sekjal     gladly :)
14:16 * jwag_mtg has to run off to the next meeting now....
14:16 jwag_mtg   At least there's only two scheduled today.  Yesterday I had four scheduled and one unscheduled meeting.  When am I supposed to get any WORK done???
14:17 sekjal     jwag_mtg: ugh.  that's horrid.  hopefully they were informative/productive meetings...
14:17 jwag_mtg   In themselves, yes.  But after about the second or third of the day, my brain turns to mush, so it's questionable how much I (a) contributed or (b) remembered....
14:22 sekjal     egad, I really don't want to think of the complexities that holds will introduce into this whole testing process...
15:36 jwagner    got another puzzler for you all, to make your Friday more interesting :-)
15:37 jcamins    Hi, we're back, it's Click and Clack the Tapper Brothers...
15:37 jcamins    Wait, sorry. I got confused by the puzzler.
15:37 jcamins    :D
15:37 jwagner    One of my sites has autobarcode on (increment).  They are saying that sometimes when they create an item with a barcode, use the label designer to print the barcode, then try to check it out, the barcode has changed.
15:37 jwagner    The autobarcode in itself shouldn't require zebra to catch up with the new item, right?
15:38 jwagner    My theory is that they are in item creation but haven't saved yet, and in the meantime someone else is creating an item that grabs the same barcode.  Is that possible?
15:38 owen       jwagner: Why not test it?
15:38 jwagner    I don't know of any way the same barcode can get assigned to a different item.
15:39 owen       Open up two sessions and create items on the same record
15:39 jwagner    (Correction). They notice that the barcode belongs to a different item/title when they try to check it out, not at the label stage.
15:39 jwagner    owen, I was trying to test it with them just now, will keep trying.  It doesn't happen every time.
15:40 jwagner    I wanted to confirm that the autobarcode piece (the incrementing number) doesn't require zebra to catch up -- it just checks what the last highest number was & goes from there.
15:42 owen       to confirm that, you have to look at where in the code the barcode is getting auto-generated
15:42 ebegin     concerning barcode, is there a way to force a prefix?  I would like my barcode to have 8 digits, prefixed with zeros
15:46 jcamins    cait: I was just thinking about you. Have you filed any bug reports about linking on 773s?
15:47 cait       thinking about me sounded nice--- until I reached the 773's :)
15:47 cait       let me check
15:47 jcamins    cait: I was thinking all good things about you.
15:48 jcamins    Actually, what I was thinking was "won't cait be happy when she hears that I found someone who might be interested in dealing with analytics!"
15:48 chris_n    ebegin: there is a somewhat broken plugin system
15:48 chris_n    ebegin: autoBarcode follows it
15:48 cait       I have no special bug report for 773 - is this host item something?
15:49 chris_n    ebegin: so you "might" be able to write a plugin to do that
15:49 jcamins    Yup, even the official name for the 773 field sounds ominous.
15:49 cait       bug 4506 is involved
15:49 munin      04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4506 enhancement, P5, ---, katrin.fischer, NEW, Add support of record linking by record control number in $w
15:49 ebegin     chris_n, yeah, that what I'm looking for.,
15:49 chris_n    jwagner: the code just does a select max on the barcode column iirc
15:49 ebegin     I'm looking at the code right now
15:50 chris_n    so zebra really has no bearing on the next barcode value
15:50 jwagner    chris_n, yes, I think I found the relevant code in C4/Form/Additem.pm
15:50 jwagner    select max( abs( barcode ) ) from items"
15:50 jwagner    then increment it by one.
15:50 chris_n    well, you'll need to check the plugin code as well
15:50 jwagner    Thanks -- wanted to rule out the zebra catchup delay as a possible factor.
15:50 chris_n    iirc
15:50 * chris_n  has not been there in quite some time
15:51 chris_n    the whole plugin logic needs to be reworked
15:52 cait       jcamins: I checked my specs - yes, wanted to work on 773. we have $w fields in there with links to the other record
15:52 * chris_n  quites ranting and heads off to spend the weekend with is wife on their 16th anniversary
15:52 jwagner    Yes, C4/Barcodes.pm has quite different-looking code -- I'm not quite following it, but it still seems to be just incrementing the existing highest value.
15:52 * jwagner  wishes chris_n and his wife another happy 16 years at least!
15:53 chris_n    jwagner: there is another section of code as well
15:53 jwagner    Yikes!
15:53 * chris_n  looks quickly
15:53 jwagner    I see some reference in the value builder script
15:53 jcamins    cait: a friend of mine has indicated that he might potentially be willing to tackle at least some of the linking issues in 7xx and 8xx fields.
15:53 sekjal     cait: I'm working on some specs for that kinda development, too
15:54 cait       cool
15:54 sekjal     the goal being to allow us to link two bibliographic records together in user-configurable relationships
15:54 sekjal     773 being an example of a common one
15:54 cait       perhaps we can talk about it sometime, I started work on it, changed the frameworks and added an index for $w fields, this dev is done
15:54 sekjal     cait: awesome!
15:55 jcamins    My friend is still introducing himself to the Koha codebase, but I thought you might appreciate the thought that you're not alone.
15:55 cait       I sent most patches, and they are on the bug too
15:55 sekjal     cait: I'll take a look
15:55 cait       I have one more patch adding the fields to the German frameworks - they were not added to koha when I started to work on it
15:55 chris_n    jwagner: see here -> http://git.koha-community.org/gitweb/?p=koha.git;a=blob;f=cataloguing/value_builder/barcode.pl;h=e21105b3ff89059003d2aa6dcbc049bdc040de88;hb=HEAD#l88
15:56 chris_n    I think that trumps all other code
15:56 cait       sekjal: I also have xslt code done by my boss - I kind of inherited this project from him
15:56 cait       jcamins: I do :)
15:56 chris_n    jwagner: and the problem described in the comment at line 89 has happened more than once here
15:56 cait       jcamins: what I don't appreciate is the lack of time to work on that project :(
15:57 * chris_n  wishes everyone a good weekend
15:57 owen       Wonders if Koha wouldn't simply warn of a duplicate barcode in that case?
15:57 chris_n    owen: it does
15:58 chris_n    one then has to backup and fix it
15:58 owen       So that's not what jwagner's problem is.
15:58 chris_n    before the record will save
15:58 owen       Unless she's dealing with an issue we can't know about because of her non-standard codebase
15:58 chris_n    the whole barcode autogeneration code stinks at present imho
15:59 chris_n    joe started to work toward a fix, but did not get far iirc
15:59 chris_n    ok, bye for real this time ;-)
15:59 jwagner    chris_n, that sounds more like what's happening.  I've asked them to gather me some more info, like asking other staff if they're cataloging at the same time.
15:59 jwagner    (and owen, non-standard codebase has nothing to do with the problem....)
16:00 owen       Then why aren't your librarians getting a duplicate barcode warning?
16:01 jwagner    I don't know.  I think in some cases they are, but other cases it doesn't seem to happen.  But we haven't touched that code at all with any of our features.
16:01 owen       My caveat is generic, since there's no way for me to know.
16:02 jcamins    jwagner: could they be getting the warning and automatically fixing it, after printing labels (we don't use Koha's barcode generation at all, so I don't really know anything about how it works)?
16:02 jwagner    It doesn't help that the person who's actually been experiencing the problem wasn't the one describing/demonstrating it to me :-(
16:03 jcamins    I am thinking about my experiences on tech support, and that sort of thing would happen all the time "oh, yeah, there was that problem, but we fixed it."
16:04 jwagner    The steps they describe are (1) create item, complete with autogenerated barcode, (2) create batch in label creator & print it, (3) go to circ, checkout & try to check it out.  At that point, entering the barcode pulls up a different title/item record -- same barcode assigned to different item/title.
16:04 jwagner    Right now I'm at the "ask them for more info" stage, but trying to rule out the obvious, like the zebra delay.
16:07 cait       sekjal: we have all those $w links and hierarchical records in our data from the union catalog. our library really needs the links to show in opac and staff. but it has been a time problem for me
16:09 cait       my specs are German and not really human readable at the moment, so they need some work before I could share them.
16:15 * jwagner  is refraining from comment on German plus not human readable :-) I had enough trouble trying to learn to SPEAK German -- reading it was even worse....
16:16 * jcamins  confesses he doesn't know any German, although he's starting to recognize a word here and there. Such as "gesamtkunstwerk."
16:17 pianohack  jcamins: Have you learned the uppercase ß yet?
16:17 pianohack  owen: I think my response to your email managed to be semi-coherent, at least :)
16:18 sekjal     cait: yeah, most of the display work could be managed by XSLT
16:18 sekjal     the work of getting the 773$w fields in there, though... I assume copy/paste of the appropriate biblionumber?
16:18 jcamins    pianohack: I studied Scottish paleography for a while, so I knew that letter.
16:19 owen       Yes pianohack. What I find interesting is that no one is making a case for the patron's need for a MARC view
16:19 cait       sekjal: yep, thats the next step in my project. I wanted to add some jQuery too. To show information about the linked titles on the record and a link as fallback
16:19 cait       sekjal: we use 001
16:19 sekjal     cait: ah, 001 makes sense, too
16:19 sekjal     one of the things in my spec is 'item passthrough'
16:20 cait       sekjal: German catalogs have had hierarchies forever
16:20 cait       item passthrough?
16:20 sekjal     that is, items attached to the biblios lower in the hierarchy show up as items for the biblios higher up
16:20 cait       I think the catalog need an addition similar to adding authorities, but search catalog and add 001 or biblionumber to record
16:21 cait       ah, for us its not about the items
16:21 pianohack  owen: Well, librarians at other libraries are patrons too. But yes, the MARC view's use is limited. My vote would be to keep the raw MARC view for copypasta purposes and eliminate the fancy ones on the OPAC side
16:21 cait       we have hierarchies not only for analytics, but also for traced series
16:21 cait       and for works with volumes, there is a record for the work, and records for every volume
16:21 owen       pianohack: Eliminate opac-MARCdetail.pl?
16:21 sekjal     cait: yeah, the passthrough would be configurable depending on the relationship in question
16:21 cait       sounds good to me
16:21 sekjal     analytics would get it, other relationships wouldn't need it
16:22 cait       ah, the passthrough would come in handy for bounded volumes too
16:22 sekjal     and yes, we'd need that search option like we have for authorities records
16:22 cait       sometimes you have two works bound together
16:23 pianohack  owen: yes, I think
16:23 cait       our libraries don't use koha for cataloging, only for management of items. they are cataloging in our union catalog - so we don't plan to add that
16:23 cait       and I'm not sure I would be able to
16:23 cait       bounded? bound... you know what I mean...
16:23 sekjal     cait: yes
16:24 sekjal     I think I may tend to over-spec
16:24 cait       I m a bit tired today :)
16:24 cait       over-spec?
16:24 sekjal     at when you think of what can be practically accomplished for the time and money available
16:24 cait       ah
16:24 cait       we have no money to pay a real developer - so it's me working on this :)
16:26 sekjal     I think this, like hourly loans, may be one of those big projects for everyone in the Koha community who's interested to throw time/effort at
16:26 sekjal     I should really get my specs up on the wiki... I just want to be sure they're as intelligible as possible first
16:29 sekjal     I think accomplishing that may be dependant on me eating lunch first, though.  brb
16:30 cait       sekjal: it would be great if you could do that, I can add what we need and perhaps work on some small things and testing
16:32 jwagner    speaking of lunch, one of the nice things about working from home is that I can decide to have a bowl of ice cream instead of the horribly healthy stuff I normally pack in my take-to-the-office lunch.
16:32 * jwagner  is off to enjoy it
16:48 cait       ice cream...
16:48 cait       cookies...
16:48 cait       *sighs*
16:48 * jcamins  agrees with cait: there is entirely too little dessert on #koha
16:49 jcamins    ;)
16:49 cait       lol
16:49 owen       Really? It seems like it's all we talk about!
16:49 owen       Bugs and dessert. Dessert and bugs. And the weather.
16:49 jcamins    Well, perhaps.
16:50 owen       What there is too little of is *actual* dessert. Enough talk!
16:55 cait       we can reduce the bug talk: http://spedr.com/5b5t6
16:57 jcamins    Hehe.
17:03 jcamins    Is there any way to make the navbar show up on the advanced search screen?
17:03 jcamins    In the OPAC.
17:07 cait       the navbar sys pref?
17:08 jcamins    Yeah, OpacNav. We want it to show up on the advanced search screen, too.
17:09 jcamins    If it's easy, anyway.
17:10 cait       hm, I don't think its possible by configuration
17:10 jcamins    I don't think we care that much.
17:11 jcamins    Really you'd think that the Navbar should show up on the Advanced search screen, though, wouldn't you?
17:11 cait       hm, depends on what you use it for
17:12 cait       I'd like to link a help file from the advance search page
17:13 jcamins    Exactly. I think I'll put that link on opaccredits, since OpacNav really doesn't show up on the Advanced search page.
17:15 cait       hm good idea
17:16 owen       jcamins: There are a few instances where OpacNav doesn't show up, including the advanced search page
17:22 jwagner    jcamins, why not add your link into the masthead, next to where Advanced Search, Tag Cloud, etc. show up?
17:22 jcamins    I can do that?
17:22 jwagner    There's a jquery statement that can add stuff there
17:22 jwagner    Lemme look it up
17:23 jwagner    This will add a couple of links at the beginning of that line:
17:23 jwagner    $("#moresearches").prepend("<a href=\"http://myhomepage.com\">Library Home</a> <span class='pipe'> | </span> <a href=\"/cgi-bin/koha/opac-main.pl\">Basic Search</a> <span class='pipe'> | </span> ");
17:24 jwagner    using .append rather than .prepend would add them at the end -- you'd want to move the pipe placement.
17:28 jcamins    Hm. I must be doing something wrong.
17:28 owen       Are you putting that inside $(document).ready() ?
17:29 jcamins    That would be what I'm doing wrong.
17:29 owen       $(document).ready(function(){
17:29 owen       ...
17:29 owen       }):
17:29 jwagner    Yes, I was assuming you already had the opening/closing lines.
17:31 jcamins    Yay!
17:31 jcamins    That's really cool.
17:31 jcamins    Thanks.
17:31 jwagner    I cannot tell a lie, I stole it from previously existing LL systems.  Which means it probably originated with owen :-)
17:35 jcamins    Ooh, Ask A Librarian can go up there too, now.
17:39 jwagner    Sure beats hardcoding changes in masthead.inc, which is what I did a few times before finding this snippet!
18:13 |Lupin|    hi
18:21 owen       Hi |Lupin|, it's been a while
18:21 |Lupin|    hello owen !
18:21 |Lupin|    owen: how are you ?
18:21 owen       I'm well, how are you?
18:22 |Lupin|    owen: well too, thanks !
18:22 |Lupin|    owen: I'm sorry but I'm not even here to have Koha discussions, just to talk with friends :-)
18:22 pianohack  Hi, Sébastien (Sebastién? Sébástíéñ? Curse you accent)
18:23 pianohack  I blame it on the fact that my town can't remember it has an ñ in its name
18:23 pianohack  Anyway, good to see you
18:23 |Lupin|    hello Jesse !
18:24 |Lupin|    pianohack: it was Sébastien, which can also be written Sebastien, but nos it's Shérab or Sherab :)
18:24 |Lupin|    pianohack: very good to see you too !
18:24 pianohack  It's changed? (At least I got the old one right)
18:25 |Lupin|    pianohack: yeah Sherab is my monk name
18:25 |Lupin|    pianohack: everybody uses this one now, except my parents
18:25 pianohack  Oh, wow. Congratulations
18:25 pianohack  Yes, parents :)
18:25 |Lupin|    pianohack: weren't you called pianohackER in the past ?
18:25 owen       Someone took away his character quota ;)
18:25 pianohack  There's a length limit on this new irc server, and I seem to be the only one that can type more than seven characters at a stretch
18:26 |Lupin|    ohoh
18:26 |Lupin|    new IRC server ?
18:26 |Lupin|    seven characters ? how about tab... ?
18:26 pianohack  yeah, they upgraded
18:26 |Lupin|    what a beautiful upgrade !
18:27 |Lupin|    pianohack: your hand must be completely healed now, right ?
18:27 pianohack  Yes. Back to normal, thanks to my mom's rehab efforts
18:27 pianohack  So happy to have it back
18:28 |Lupin|    pianohack: yeah not difficult to imagine !
18:42 jwagner    owen will be proud of me -- just figured out yet another jquery variation without having to ask :-)
18:42 jwagner    ("strong:contains('No Result found!')").replaceWith("No Result found! Please log in to your account to make a purchase suggestion.");
18:44 brendan    jwagner - you're on a roll
18:44 |Lupin|    hi Jane :)
18:44 brendan    what to figure out another one?
18:44 brendan    s/what/want
18:44 jwagner    hi |Lupin|
18:45 jwagner    brendan, my to-do pile is out of control already :-)
18:45 brendan    awh shucks
18:45 jwagner    But maybe if I already have it on my cheat sheet....
18:45 owen       jwagner: At my library we use "$(".searchresults").after()" so that the suggestions link appears whether or not there are no results
18:45 pianohack  I know some jQuery, if owen isn't around :)
18:46 owen       ..figuring that the patron may have gotten some results but not the ones they wanted
18:46 * owen     should add that to the wiki
18:46 jwagner    owen, that might work.  They only asked for it if there were no results, but I couldn't figure out how to put it on the No results match your search for X in Y catalog line.
18:46 jwagner    I did a patch a while back, I think, to put some codes around that line, don't think it's been pushed yet.
18:51 owen       jwagner: Is there a bug report for that?
18:51 chris      morning
18:52 owen       Hi chris
18:53 brendan    @wunder 93117
18:53 munin      brendan: The current temperature in Northwest Goleta, Goleta, California is 18.2�C (11:58 AM PDT on August 06, 2010). Conditions: Overcast. Humidity: 73%. Dew Point: 13.0�C. Pressure: 29.89 in 1012.1 hPa (Rising).
18:53 jwagner    owen, Bug 4819
18:53 munin      04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4819 enhancement, P5, ---, chris, NEW, Add ID tags to certain areas of OPAC so jquery can be used to hide them
18:58 owen       jwagner: That patch no longer applies.
18:59 jwagner    Figures.
18:59 jwagner    It worked when I sent it....
19:00 owen       Koha moves on
19:00 jwagner    Sigh
19:08 jcamins    Strange bug: when I'm on the Creators syspref tab, the tab is not highlighted. The highlighting seems to work on all the other tabs, though. Can anyone confirm this bug before I report it?
19:09 owen       Confirmed.
19:09 jcamins    Thanks.
19:09 pianohack  What is the creators tab, anyway?
19:10 jcamins    I have no idea.
19:10 chris      at the moment just patron images
19:10 pianohack  Why a tab just for that?
19:10 chris      basically its for stuff you upload
19:11 chris      the idea was to have all the sysprefs associated with label,barcode creating etc be there
19:12 chris      turns out, there arent that many, just the patron images
19:13 jcamins    Argh! I keep on forgetting that the default for the Bugzilla is enhancement.
19:20 * chris
19:20 chris      heh
19:20 chris      needs coffee apparently
19:21 * chris    ventures out in the rain to go get kahu from his sleepover
19:23 cait       hi chris
19:23 cait       too late :)
19:27 jcamins    owen: That was fast!
19:28 owen       I had to change one whole character!
19:28 * owen     collapses
19:29 jcamins    Heh. I'm still impressed.
19:31 jcamins    You had to create a branch and patch, in addition to changing that one character, after all.
19:32 owen       I'm a crazed branch-creating maniac
19:32 cait       :)
19:36 jwagner    @quote add <owen> I'm a crazed branch-creating maniac
19:36 munin      jwagner: The operation succeeded.  Quote #88 added.

19:44 pianohack  Hahahahaha
19:44 pianohack  Poor thing's lost admin rights anyway
19:44 owen       Computer: Deactivate holodeck safety protocols!
19:48 owen       Oh, and the other LOC catalog feature we should copy is the menacing session timeout clock in the title bar
19:48 owen       MUST... SEARCH... FASTER!
19:49 jwagner    well, owen, we wrote an OPAC timeout feature (Bug 4238) -- wouldn't be too hard to add a visible clock on the page :-)
19:49 munin      04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4238 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, chris, NEW, OPAC timeout feature for patron privacy
19:51 * cait     has cookies :)
19:52 pianohack  Anyone else here that uses the new fancy batch item delete tool?
19:53 * owen     has only tested it
19:53 pianohack  I've noticed that it does not delete the biblio if you delete the last item
19:53 pianohack  For our library, at least, this is less than optimal. Thinking of sending a patch to automatically delete the bib if necessary
19:53 pianohack  Thoughts?
19:54 owen       I'd rather see it happen as a second stage: "The following records have no remaining items..."
19:54 jcamins    pianohack: I cannot entirely remember why, but two days ago I was wishing that Koha would do that for me.
19:54 pianohack  owen: Ahh, that's a good idea
19:54 cait       I like the idea too
19:55 cait       some days back somone was asking about a biblio bulk delete feature here on irc
20:19 owen       Have a good weekend everyone
20:23 pianohack  chris: around?
20:39 jcamins    Have a good weekend, #koha
