00:48 mtompset front! :)
00:48 mtompset Sorry, a little crazy. :)
00:49 wajasu ok. back to patching. i have the facets aligning with the results.   can you give me a test scenario off hand to try to break things?
00:55 SherryS joined #koha
01:06 wajasu i'm thinking I can make OpacSuppression work like HiddenItems, where instead of a using YAML rules to hide items, i just look for items.suppress mapping or a syspref of tags, (942n=1,099$t,210$b), so no extra zebra index for supression is needed.
01:07 wajasu unless you need/want that for a publicly exposed z3950 server.
01:16 mtompset Sorry... stepped away for evening time with my son. :)
01:17 wajasu cool
01:17 mtompset So, you added a zebra index for OpacHiddenItems?
01:18 mtompset Because the problem I see with an index is that the patron override of OpacHiddenItems means that you'd have to reindex before searching.
01:18 mtompset because they could be logged in or out or have their category changed.
01:19 wajasu no extra index.  i added 999h=1 to the biblio tag on rebuld_zebra export.   then in  in the getRecords build_facets code i look at the 999h=1 to see if hidden and "skip" that record.  In the searchResults code i can do the same.
01:21 wajasu now that processing happens in rebuild_zebra.  one biblio index.  no extra index.  just encoding it in the marc record we export.
01:22 wajasu can do the same for OpacSuppress looking at tags(245n or such) and setting 999s=1  and add a similiar check in search like I have working for OpacHiddenItems.
01:23 mtompset Okay, but do you have the patron category code override functioning?
01:24 mtompset that is... it is normally hidden, but the patron with a category code of SEEALL gets to see all the hidden things.
01:25 mtompset ala bug 10589, 10895, 10900?
01:25 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=10589 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, mtompset, Passed QA , Override OpacHiddenItems based on Patron Category
01:26 wajasu I can adjust for that easily.
01:26 wajasu in the search where I check for the hidden, I'll just add the exception that if the user is loggedon and has a patron category of SEEALL, I won't hide.
01:28 wajasu i'll work on a cleaned up patch for what I have now and maybe you can check it out with your red green blue DB if thats still around and let me know.
01:28 mtompset I'll test it with our QA data. :P
01:34 mtompset let me know the bug number you put it up under... you may have to rebase also, if my Passed QA bug reports get pushed.
01:42 wajasu i'm going to rebase since so much has gone out in the past few days.
02:06 mtompset wajasu: You know what would be really cool to have? A process flow diagram.
02:07 mtompset what perl script gets the input, and how it calls other perl modules to process and then output the results.
02:07 mtompset Because I think the diagram would be a complete and utter mess, and should be cleaned up somehow. :)

14:38 grex hey, if i want to create a backupscript for a koha server, which directory i should include at least?
14:39 grex /var/www, /etc, /usr/share/koha is what i have for now
14:41 jcamins grex: if you use packages, /var/koha is where the backups are stored.
14:41 jcamins If not the important thing is backing up MySQL.
14:45 grex yes i do dump all my databases on this server
14:46 grex /var/koha does not exist on my VPS
14:48 grex what do you mean with "if you use packages"?
14:50 jcamins Sorry, /var/lib/koha
14:50 jcamins I mean if you installed using packages instead of from source.
14:50 jcamins BTW, I'm baking bread now, and only answering when I happen to walk by the computer.
14:52 grex ah yes, indeed i'm doing it the debian way ;)
14:52 grex ok thank you, i'll add varlibkoha to my backupscript
15:46 tcohen grex: you might as well make your backup script "run koha-dump" and grab its output :-D
15:48 tcohen @wunder cordoba, argentina

18:48 jcamins faq?
18:48 wahanui it has been said that faq is found at
19:05 wajasu joined #koha
19:33 grex oh of course koha-dump seems great for that
19:34 grex so what is the difference between koha-dump and koha-run-backups?
19:41 jcamins The former creates a backup of a single instance.
19:41 jcamins The latter backs up all Koha instances and deletes obsolete backups.
19:51 grex ah ok, fine

23:19 bag yes we went to the sitine chapel today
23:19 bag amazing
23:20 cait wow!
23:20 bag tomorrow the colosuem
23:20 bag :D
23:20 cait :)
23:20 cait take some pictures? :)
23:20 bag and enjoying some proseccp
23:20 bag prosecco
23:20 cait heh
23:20 bag well you can't take pictures in the sistine chapel
23:20 bag so no :(
23:20 cait ah right
23:20 cait makes sense
23:20 cait maybe the colosseum?
23:20 bag but it was really amazing
23:21 bag yes yes more pictures tomorrow
23:22 cait :)
23:22 cait when are you flying back?
23:28 mtompset_away joined #koha
23:28 mtompset Greetings, #koha.
23:30 Sean joined #koha
23:30 Sean is there a way to limit the number of search results returned in a query?
23:32 bag cait we fly back on tuesday
23:32 cait cool :)
23:32 cait more meetings or only sight seeing?
23:32 cait Sean: what are you trying to do?
23:33 Sean Hi Cait, I'm trying to do a search that is sorted by acquisition date (for a listing of newest items). But, say, if I do that search on BOOK itype, it churns until 300,000 results are returned
23:33 bag search results returned in a query - no there isn't a setting to limit that
23:34 bag but you can expand or limit the number of results that are shown
23:34 bag like 20 or 30 or 50 per page
23:34 Sean hi @bag, how would I do that?
23:34 cait ah, bag was faster :)
23:34 cait which is good, because i am sleepy
23:35 cait long train travel today
23:35 bag Sean there is a system preference in the opac or the search section
23:35 bag it should have results or limit in the variable
23:35 cait bag++
23:36 bag yes cait I'm sleeply too - JesseM just fell asleep
23:36 Sean thank you, looking for that preference....we're excited....5 more days of III Millennium, migrating Thursday night!
23:36 bag yay!  that's exciting :)
23:36 cait Sean: :)
23:36 Sean hmmm...not seeing such a preference (to limit number of results in OPAC search...or similar)
23:37 cait sec
23:38 Sean FWIW we're on
23:38 cait numSearchResults and OpacnumSearchResults
23:39 bag OPACnumSearchResults
23:39 bag ah cait is quicker :D
23:39 bag cait++
23:39 cait we take turns :)
23:40 Sean thanks! yeah, that limits to 20 per page. Was wondering if we could limit to 50 total results returned (like, the first 50 newest items). OPACnumSearchResults setting doesn't affect "the wait" on 300k book results
23:41 bag correct Sean
23:42 bag there isn't a way to limit the total number of results - just what you display
23:43 Sean although numSearchResults is helpful for RSS, which could be used to get this list in a different way. Thanks a lot bag & cait!
23:43 cait Sean: there is a sep one for rss even :)
23:43 bag sure thing :)  luckly you caught us right before bed time :)
23:43 cait numSearchRSSResults
23:44 bag poor JesseM is snoring next to me :P
23:44 cait hehe
23:44 bag JesseM++
23:44 cait let him sleep
23:44 cait been long days for him :)
23:44 bag of course cait
23:44 Sean right-o re. rss good night all!
23:44 bag the good thing is that cait - he's been learning :)
23:45 cait :)
23:45 bag ok night night
23:45 cait sleep well
23:45 cait i am off as well
