The Koha OPAC is incredibly customizable, with many regions where you can easily add text by editing system preferences, as shown in the screenshots below. The first set of screenshots is for the "prog" theme, and the second set for the "ccsr" theme. You can select the theme by modifying the opacthemes system preference.


The principle system preferences for modifying regions are:

  • opaccredits
  • opacheader
  • OpacMainUserBlock
  • OpacMainUserBlockMobile
  • OPACMySummaryHTML
  • OpacNav
  • OpacNavBottom
  • OpacNavRight
  • OPACNoResultsFound
  • OPACResultsSidebar
  • OPACSearchForTitleIn


In addition to those system preferences which enable you to add text and HTML to specific parts of the OPAC, a great deal of customization can be done by modifying the OPACUserCSS and opacuserjs system preferences to add custom CSS and custom Javascript to your OPAC. Some examples of what you can do with javascript are available in the jQuery Library on the Koha wiki.
