Description:
Hello,

I tried to bypass liquid thread extension by going simply to the following page (as I needed to edit the whole page and not a specific thread) :
http://liquidthreads.labs.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Quentinv57&action=edit

I performed the edit I needed to perform, and now, when I click on the "History" button, I find an empty history :
http://liquidthreads.labs.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Quentinv57&lqt_method=talkpage_history

To say it differently, the history should take editions with no thread into account too.

You can contact me on http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Quentinv57 if needed. Thanks.

You have to use the history link near the edit link inside the discussion page header: http://liquidthreads.labs.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Quentinv57&action=history, not the "View history" at the top of the page.

Yes, sure, but I think that this edition should appear on the "&lqt_method=talkpage_history" history too. Contributors won't be able to find who added the message through the "View history" button. And they won't think to change the URI to "&action=history" at all.

Do you see what I mean ?

This bug is opened for almost one year now. Anything new ?

Thanks by advance.

I think adding 'See also <history link>' text at the top would be good enough. Otherwise this is a wontfix - I don't think completely rebuilding the entire action=history on the LQT history page would be a good idea.

I think adding 'See also <history link>' text at the top would be good enough.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
