SQL: Like vs Equals
You can’t get something out of nothing – unless perhaps you understand the essence of coalesce, more or less. This is good stuff.
In order to form a more perfect union… you need to watch this video! We’ll go over how to show the results of multiple queries in a single report.
In this exciting, action-packed episode, George goes in for an extraction – of subtitles in Marc records. Will he get them out in one piece? Watch, and find out!
SQL: The Dashboard Finale
You’ve watched the life-sucking training videos that led you step-by-step through each detail of George’s twisted mind. Now watch the video that brings it all together in a slow, unrelenting madness as you take control of Koha and become the master of SQL and item records. (Maniacal laughing inserted here.)
jQuery: Enhanced Search Facets
Hold on to your facets, because you ain’t seen nothing yet! This week Christopher takes the helm as he navigates viewers through the bizarre world of search facets. One could almost say it’s “facet”-nating!
jQuery & CSS: Enhanced Suspended Hold Listings
Holy enhanced features, Batman! This is the feature you’ve all been waiting for. No more delays! This week, Christopher shows of a brand new tweak that will really make those suspended holds stand out, and even shed some light on future holds.
jQuery & CSS: Placards
It’s time to boldly go where no man has gone before – or at least no Koha OPAC has gone before. Join us this week as we explore strange, new worlds with our hosts while they show you how to add placards (information panels) to OPAC search results for items outside of your normal collection. This is an episode that even Jean Luc Picard would be proud of. (Or is that Jean Luc Placard?)
Notices & Slips: Template Toolkit
This week we welcome our very first special guest, the awesome Lisette Scheer! Lisette will be dazzling us with her wicked skills in Template Toolkit, making notices and slips better for the entire world. She will also bring an extra sparkle to the usual witty banter.
