Monday Minutes: Adding Links to the OPAC

In this week's Monday Minutes, Kelly and Jessie show you how to add additional elements to the “More Searches” bar on the OPAC. The OpacMoreSearches system preference allows you to add more links/searches under the search box at the top of the OPAC. By default (and depending on system preferences) there is a link for Advanced Search, Course reserves, Authority search, and Tag cloud. Any new searches will be added to the right of the already present links.

Setting up the Links

Navigate to Administration --> Global System Preferences --> OpacMoreSearches.

Here is an example of the HTML that could be added to this system preference:

  • <a href=”https:koha.bywatersolutions.com”>Koha Education Material and Videos</a>

On the OPAC, this will display the text Koha Education Material and Videos and link to the ByWater Solutions Koha Education website.
