Description

On at least two sites, running respectively 3.x and 4.x:

- jiamcatt.ourwiki.net (3.x)
- terminology.tikiwiki.org (4.x)

I noticed that if I change a wiki page and save it as a minor edit, email notifications are still being sent.

I think that this only happens when the user is part of a group for which a Group Watch has been set. When I tested on the 3.x site, that's the conclusion I had come to (this AM, UK time). But this PM (UK time), I tested on the 4.x site, and it seems that the minor edit is causing notification even if a user-defiined watch (i.e. as opposed to a group watch) is set.

BTW: This bug caused a minor incident on the JIAMCATT site. Someone did about 30 minor edits to a page that was being monitored by a large number of people, because he was a newbie and was trying to master the syntax for referencing a section inside a page. As a result, 30 notifications got sent to a hundred people, and some of them got pretty pissed off, and almost walked out on the site. One person asked to be "taken off this infernal web site".

So, if the bug can be fixed quickly, I can go back to this community and tell them that something was done to prevent that sort of problem in the future, which might diffuse the crisis.

Solution
Minor edits can result in notifications if "Watch minor edits" is enabled. The interface contradicted that though, which was fixed in r24415. Also, r24414 changed the default for that to disabled. This should be fixed in Tiki 5.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
