Bug 24088: Add link to item search in staff client main page

This search is very usefull, it needs more visibility.

Test plan :
1) Loggin to staff client
2) On main page /cgi-bin/koha/mainpage.pl
3) Check you see a big link to item search below advanced search
4) Click on it and check you go to item search

This search is already on every page, in the header under "search"

I agree the search is useful, but I think this is cluttering.
Comment 4 Owen Leonard 2019-12-10 19:58:27 UTC
One could also add a link to the header menu using the IntranetNav system preference if you wanted to avoid that click:

<li><a href="/cgi-bin/koha/catalogue/itemsearch.pl">Item search</a></li>

In my opinion we don't need such a prominent link on the home page.

Mmm, a lot of our customers asked for that, saying they use it a lot and want to save a click.
