Turn on DiscussionTools subscription feature at testwiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello. Can we please turn on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:DiscussionTools#Section_subscriptions for testwiki? DiscussionTools appears to already be installed, just need to modify a configuration setting somewhere.

Tagging Editing-team, this should be similar to T302256: Config Change: offer Reply Tool, New Discussion Tool, Topic Subscriptions as Opt-Out at mediawiki.org on Mediawiki.org. So is this request about wgDiscussionTools_topicsubscription only, or also includes wgDiscussionTools_newtopictool and wgDiscussionTools_autotopicsub?

The consensus I obtained is for topicsubscription only, although I have no personal objection to broadening it.

So is this request about wgDiscussionTools_topicsubscription only, or also includes wgDiscussionTools_newtopictool and wgDiscussionTools_autotopicsub?

wgDiscussionTools_newtopictool has already been enabled recently (T310392).

wgDiscussionTools_autotopicsub is always disabled by default for now in preferences, but we should make that preference available directly (without having to enable the beta feature first), like we've done for other deployments so far (T302256#7807915), otherwise I will lose my mind trying to keep track of what is enabled where.
