Koha recommendations

Le raccomandazioni sul sistema e sull’hardware necessario per far funzionare Koha si trovano nel wiki ufficiale insieme alla documentazione per gli sviluppatori:

When working in the Koha staff interface it is strongly recommended that you use an up-to-date version of either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. The Koha community doesn’t support Internet Explorer for the staff interface. If your organization only allows Microsoft products, use Edge instead of Internet Explorer.

Using this manual

This manual is always changing and suggestions for edits can be sent to the Koha documentation team as a merge request via gitlab or via the koha-docs mailing list.

If you see an error or something missing, please file a bug report on bugzilla using the module “Documentation”. You can also send an email to the koha-docs mailing list.

The manual is organized by Koha module. At the start of most sections (and throughout) you will find “Get there” tips. These lines tell you how to get to the section in Koha.

Per esempio: Vai a: Più > Amministrazione > Preferenze di sistema

Questo suggerimento ti dice come trovare l’opzione del menu di Koha (che sta sulla barra in alto) che ti porta alle preferenze di sistema
