Inform users if the source wiki could not be updated
Closed, ResolvedPublic3 Estimated Story Points


After a successful file move to the target wiki, users can agree to us making changes on the source wiki, to let it know that transfer has happened. However, in case this is not possible, the user should be informed.

Acceptance Criteria
[] On the target wiki file page, show the error message:
The file has been successfully imported to <target wiki name>, but the template {{<template name}} could not be added automatically. Please return to [[the original file]] and add this template manually. [original file is link to source wiki]
[] The error message is yellow, as standard for mediawiki

Gentle nudge—we're still blocked by these decisions (see T227064). It's still no particular rush, since I think the current behavior is good enough for MVP, but I wanted to flag this as a loose end to tie up.

sorry, it slipped my mind :/ Let's go with what you have implemented now, and we can always come back later and change it if we see fit.

Okay--last detail is that with two boxes, the text will have to be adjusted slightly. Perhaps the error box should say,

The template {{<template name>}} could not be added automatically. Please return to [[the original file]] and add this template manually.

This works in some cases, but exceptions where we fail to report the error are tracked in T233576: Source wiki edit logic doesn't detect some failure cases.

Demonstrating this feature is difficult because we have no way to force an error. I'm filing as "done" for now.
