Description Owen Leonard 2014-11-04 17:00:44 UTC
To me an option which says "Always show checkouts immediately" should really mean "Always," not just "for this session, until I close my browser."

[PASSED QA] Bug 13196 - "Always show checkouts immediately" cookie should persist across sessions

This patch modifies the way the checkouts script sets the "Always show
checkouts" cookie so that it is set with an explicit expiration date
(+365 days). This will allow the cookie to persist across browser
sesssions.

To test, apply the patch and clear your browser cookies to start with a
clean slate.

- Check out to a patron who has existing checkouts. Their checkouts
  should not load by default.
- Check the "Always show checkouts immediately" checkbox.
- Close your browser.
- Reopen your browser and check out to that patron again. Checkouts
  should now be displayed by default.

Works as described. I confirm that without this patch, the un-persistance of
"show checkouts" choice is very perturbing for librarians coming from previous
version of Koha.

Passes tests and QA script, no problems found.

Thanks Owen!
Comment 5 Mason James 2015-01-21 07:07:42 UTC
This needs to be backported to 3.16.x

> This needs to be backported to 3.16.x

This patch depends on Bug 12550, so I assume it is not relevant to 3.16.x.
Comment 7 Katrin Fischer 2015-05-11 13:00:27 UTC
Chris, can you consider this for the next 3.18.x? We have had several libraries asking for it since their update to 3.18 (see bug 14180).
Comment 8 Katrin Fischer 2015-05-13 08:26:16 UTC
I have tried to check the checkbox with jQuery, but it doesn't work quite right - the checkbox is checked, but the checkouts don't load... I think this patch would improve things.
Comment 9 Katrin Fischer 2015-05-13 08:49:16 UTC
Argh, I see now that this is already in 3.18. Sorry for the confusion.
