Moving a topic to another page does not take effect in Special:TopicSubscriptions
Closed, DuplicatePublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):

  • Create and subscribe to new topics on the talk page;
  • Move the topic to another page.

What happens?: In Special:TopicSubscriptions, the topic's page still refers to the page from which the topic was originally created. (For example, if you move a topic from page A to page B, it will still refer to page A.) The same is true if you unsubscribe and then resubscribe.

What should have happened instead?: The page in the topic should refer to the page the topic was moved to.

Software version (skip for WMF-hosted wikis like Wikipedia):

Thanks for the report, this is a known limitation. Note that even though Special:TopicSubscriptions shows the old page title, you'll still receive notifications for the topic on the new page (you can check the state of the subscribe/unsubscribe button there to confirm).
