    Question

    How to bypass the login screen of the OPAC?

    Answer


    1. In $alephe_root/www_f_lng, save "login" page as "login.orig":


    cp -p login login.orig


    2. copy the name of the desired default initial page ("basic") to "login" and it will appear as the default page:


    cp basic login

    In the original login page, message 9863 displays: "ID / barcode and verification are not case sensitive."
    After change to default page"basic", this message still displays.


    Change message 9863 in $alephe_root/error_eng/www_f_heading:


    1. Save the original copy: cp www_f_heading www_f_heading.orig


    2. Change the line
    "9863 L ID / barcode and verification are not case sensitive."
    to
    "9863 L Welcome to our library catalog. Please sign in to view your personal account."

    Additional Information

    If you don't want any message to display, you can modify the head file.
