"Hi Lynda, It's also a great tool for you and your volunteers to practice with.  Even after all the years I've shelved books and more, I still make mistakes -- we all do."

Webopac Setup - HTML

We are finally getting Webopac set up- it has it's own server, and will be updated manually.  I've waited a long, long time.  Anyway, it will be available off of the church app, and the website do in order to make it look good, I should use HTML.   I have found a number of tutorials, but it seems so complicated.  Has anyone else set up webopac in this way?  Any hints, warnings.   And if possible, could I see what you've done, and how you've done it?See More
