Advanced Search Default Pane workstation setting not working

Bug #1799963 reported by Angela Kilsdonk

Bug Description

Tested on 3.2.0

Setting the Advanced Search Default Pane to 'Numeric' or 'MARC Expert' in Admin>Workstation Admin does not appear to work. The Advanced Search interface continues to default to the regular advanced search tab.

Based on my testing the Default Search Library and Preferred Library settings appear to be working as expected in 3.2.

There was a similar bug a while back (, but this appears to be a new bug. All workstation search preferences worked as expected in 3.1.

That branch breaks any opac page that isn't eventually reached via the advanced search page. (i.e. loading a record by id, etc.) This branch adds a second commit that makes everything that's not advanced search related work the same as it does today:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/user/jboyer/lp1799963-staff-default-adv-search / working/user/jboyer/lp1799963-staff-default-adv-search
