Is this the real fix?     The link will then go away on every screen?

That would be wonderful!

I think you want to try "ctx.holds_block.enabled = 'true';" in config.tt2 in your public catalogue configuration file.

All –

  IS there a way to prevent the “place a hold” link from showing up in the public catalog, everywhere??   We want it so ONLY show up on items that fill our hold requirement – those items that are checked out or NOT available.

  We have set the proper condition in the Library Settings to not have holds for available items, but the link still shows up in the public catalog for EVERYTHING.   Can it be made to go away?  What are the steps to make this happen?

  Right now it is so confusing to our users and they keep trying to “place a hold” on items that will never be holdable.    It is extremely annoying.
