Bug Description

Currently the EG web based self check shows several UI elements that are not usable even when no patron is authenticated. I would like all those UI elements to be hidden when the station is sitting idle, and then shown after a successful patron login, and then hidden again after patron logoff.

Additionally, I would like an easy way to customize the blank space that is left. This space could be used in numerous ways.

 * Welcome message from the Library.
 * Announcements from the Library.
 * Instructional text, images, gifs, videos that show how to use the self check.
 * Advertisement for upcoming events or services.
 * Book Carousels to advertise materials.

I attached an image showing the selfcheck UI in it's normal idle state and an example of the unusable UI hidden.

Thanks
Josh

I have submitted a small fix for the "hiding elements" portion of this ticket:

http://git.evergreen-ils.org/?p=working/Evergreen.git;a=commit;h=6967c0968c2f98e979101be595f6aa554cfb6112

For testing, simply apply and then log in / log out as a patron to be sure it is hiding the bottom content unless authenticated.

This fix does not include a mechanism for adding in easily updatable content, but I think for a local customization you could probably add a new DIV on main.tt2 that contains the content (maybe through an iframe so it could pull in a page from your library's web site?) and then add another line to the selfcheck.js to hide that div at the same time that the oils-selfck-bottom-div is being hidden:

openils.Util.hide('my-new-div');

I've pushed the patch to master. Thanks, Terran!

Josh, if you want to pursue adding a mechanism to push content to the self-check page in a way other than via a template customization, please open a new bug.
