Description Magnus Enger 2021-02-04 08:18:03 UTC
If PatronSelfRegistrationLibraryList only has one library code in it, that one library is still shown as a dropdown with one choice. It would be better if the code was in a "hidden" form input and the "Home library" was just shown as text, or not shown at all.

Bug 27618: Don't show dropdown if PatronSelfRegistrationLibraryList only has one library

This patch modifies the patron entry form in the OPAC so that if there
is only one library to choose from, the input is hidden and the single
library displays as text.

To test, apply the patch and enable PatronSelfRegistration.

- Modify the PatronSelfRegistrationLibraryList system preference to
  include only one library.
- Go to the self-registratoin page in the OPAC.
- Under "Home library," you should see the library name. If you inspect
  the source you should see the library branchcode in a hidden form.
- Confirm that the form submission includes the correct library
  information.

We've been asked to remove this input field too by libraries, so really in favor of this change :)

Enhancement not pushed to 20.11.x

I prefer not modify an OPAC feature behavior on stable branch.
