I just thought I'd share a moment (actually, 15 minutes) from today's
Koha IRC log (chat for Koha users and developers) ... it's a great
example of how rapid development works in the Open Source world. Owen,
one of our community's template designers,(from the Nelsonville Public
Library), had an 'itch to scratch' ...
05:46 < owen> Patrons should be able to cancel a reserve online!
05:47 < kados> owen: they can't?
05:47 < owen> Not unless this is a secret which has been kept from me :)
05:48 * owen doesn't know if this has been added in 3.0
05:48 < kados> probably not added, but it would be a trivial feature to add
05:49 < kados> there's already a separate column for reserves in the account page, right?
05:49 < owen> A separate tab
05:49 < kados> that's what I meant
05:50 < kados> ahh, I see now:
05:50 < kados> If you no longer want a reserve, please send us an e-mail, or go to the circulation desk at your library to get it removed.
05:50 < kados> hmmm
05:54 < kados> owen:
05:54 < kados> add the following somewhere in the template:
05:54 < kados> <form action="/cgi-bin/koha/opac-modrequest.pl" method="post">
05:54 < kados> <input type="hidden" name="from" value="borrower" />
05:54 < kados> <input name="rank-request" value="del">
05:54 < kados> <input type="hidden" name="biblio" value="16595" />
05:54 < kados> <input type="hidden" name="borrowernumber" value="22994" />
05:54 < kados> <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Remove" /></p>
05:54 < kados> </form>
05:55 < kados> owen: the biblio and borrowernumber numbers will need to be TMPL_VARs
05:55 < owen> Will that redirect back to the reserves list?
05:55 < kados> remove that stray </p> too
05:59 < owen> Hey, works like a charm
05:59 < kados> :-)
05:59 < kados> ok, I'll commit my script, you can commit the template :-)
06:00 < kados> *nod*
So you never know what could happen if you log on to chat and complain
about something ;-) Join us sometime:
