Closed, DuplicatePublic

On Notification flyout and Notification page - FlowMention is displayed correctly.

  1. Create a title with {{FlowMention|Test}}

  1. A user who receives a notification about a new/edited topic will see {{FlowMention|Test}} correctly in the flyout and on the Notification page.

Mattflaschen-WMF set Security to None.

The bug is that it is parsed in the notification. The topic title field does not support templates, so for now we can treat it as plaintext, similar to T121994: Signpost notification displaying unwanted pre tags.

Also, mentions do not work in topic title, so there is no point in doing this (but it's still a bug).
