BasicVsAdvancedInterface

This feature provides a simple way to offer privileged users a basic interface (i.e. the SelfService interface) or an advanced interface (the default RT at a Glance interface). Non-privileged users will still only ever see the SelfService screens. A cookie keeps track of the user's preference. This patch was created against 3.6.3 source.

There are two files to patch, Elements/Header and SelfService/Elements/Header, as well as two new files (Elements/UIPrefCookieCheck and Elements/UIPrefSwitchView). To install the feature:

  1. create the directory <rt-root>/local/html/Elements, if needed
  2. copy the file <rt-root>/share/html/Elements/Header to <rt-root>/local/html/Elements, if it does not already exist
  3. create the directory <rt-root>/local/html/SelfService/Elements, if needed
  4. copy the file <rt-root>/share/html/SelfService/Elements/Header] to <rt-root>/local/html/SelfService/Elements, if it does not already exist
  5. create the file <rt-root>/local/html/Elements/UIPrefCookieCheck, with the contents shown below
  6. create the file <rt-root>/local/html/Elements/UIPrefSwitchView, with the contents shown below
  7. create the file <rt-root>/UIPref.diff, with the contents shown below
  8. apply the patch (assuming <rt-root> == /opt/rt3):
$ cd /opt/rt3
$ patch -p0 <UIPref.diff
