Description Lucas Gass 2021-10-28 20:52:47 UTC
Not all users of Koha use the Koha OPAC as the public facing front end. We can define the baseURL of a different OPAC with OPACBaseURL but not the rest.

It would be nice if Koha had a system preference that told Koha how to build those thinks, with a {biblionumber} placeholder. That way you could tell it something like this:

We've also ran into this issue with shared lists https://github.com/Koha-Community/Koha/blob/b2fdd8f745f77a52d00ffffdfea8dd60dc33f462/koha-tmpl/intranet-tmpl/prog/en/modules/virtualshelves/sendshelf.tt#L146

If we used a system preference to control these links, what would be the best format? YAML? Example

OPACLinks (default):

xslt_MARC21slim2intranetDetail_opac_view: "{{OPACBaseURL|raw}}/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber={{biblionumber}}"
virtualshelves_sendshelf: "{{OPACBaseURL|raw}}/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber={{BIBLIO_RESULT.biblionumber|html}}"

OPACLinks (customized)

xslt_MARC21slim2intranetDetail_opac_view: "https://another_frontend/record/{{biblionumber}}"
virtualshelves_sendshelf: "https://another_frontend/record/{{BIBLIO_RESULT.biblionumber|html}}"

There are probably plenty of such locations so we have to identify those. Shall we open a new Bug for each of them and consider this Bug omnibus?
