No orange-bar-of-doom when a message is posted on a user talk page using Flow
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Reported here. I've seen that by myself too: when I have a new message on my talk page, I do not have the OBOD.

Event Timeline

No, this is not related. This has never worked, because the OBOD only appears for edit-user-talk messages. It has become more noticeable recently because we started rendering Flow notifications about your user talk page differently.

In order to fix this, we'd at least need for the user-talk-related Flow notifications to be their own types. We need that for the alert/messages re-sort as well, and we don't have a task for it yet, so I'll create one.

It looks like some of our code uses the edit-user-talk category, and some of it uses the edit-user-talk type to decide whether to have something trigger/untrigger the OBOD. So if we use the category consistently, then fixing T133220: Sort out Notification categories to make them more logical for Preferences will fix this bug as a side-effect.

A few questions to reassure me: do you take the actual OBOD preference into account?

Checked in betalabs - OBOD is shown when flow-usertalk* are present.

Checked in wmf. 23.

Today it works for me on frwiki, thanks all.
