Description Katrin Fischer 2011-08-10 09:58:39 UTC

The button 'New category' appears only as link when I have no patron categories defined in administration.

Once I have defined a first category the buttons shows up as normal.

javascript error probably related to the problem:

table.tBodies[0] is undefined
error source line: [Bei diesem Fehler anhalten] (function($){$.extend({tablesorter:new...g Zebra widget",time);}}});})(jQuery);...

[SIGNED-OFF] Fix for Bug 6696, New category button broken when no categories defined

The javascript tablesorter will trigger an error if we try
to apply it to a table with no <tbody>. That error prevented
the YUI button script to complete properly, hence the broken

This patch hides the table in cases where there are no
categories and displays an error message instead.

- Deleted all patron categories and checked button was broken
- Applied patch and checked again - button shows up
- Nice: There is a note now that you have to create categories
