Description Chris Cormack 2010-05-21 01:09:05 UTC

---- Reported by wizzyrea@gmail.com 2009-06-10 21:01:28 ----

The add patron screen should give a message (instead of a cryptic mysql borrowernumber=0 error)  when a new koha user tries to add a patron but has no libraries defined.

Additionally, should give an error message when a user tries to add a patron but has no patron types defined.

Currently both conditions give inadequate or nonexistant errors.

---- Additional Comments From wizzyrea@gmail.com 2009-06-10 21:05:16 ----

I might suggest a workaround that includes setting the default IntranetmainUserblock preference to include instructions to work through the administration area before trying to do any work (and a pointer to how to remove the message).
