Mention notification is broken on talk pages where LiquidThreads is enabled (e.g. [[mw:]] and [[pt:wikibooks:]])
OpenPublic

Description

As tested in the URL above, if a user mentions another user when replying to a post using LQT, the other user is not notified. Maybe this is because Echo requires the comment to be manually signed and LQT warns the user when it does so (since it adds a signature automatically, outside of the wikicode of the commment)?

Change 93508 had a related patch set uploaded by Legoktm:
Remove namespace restriction for mention notifications

First issue, any link outside of NS_PROJECT / talk namespaces are ignored. Above patchset will fix that.

Then there is the signature issue. Maybe we should just special case NS_THREAD and ignore the signature requirement for that namespace?

This patch https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/93508 does not support Chinese.

Our English version have exactly the same environment and setting as Chinese version.

However, mention only succeed in English ver: http://en.moegirl.org/Talk:Sandbox .

Not Chinese ver: http://zh.moegirl.org/Talk:%E8%AE%A8%E8%AE%BA%E7%89%88#at.E6.8F.90.E5.8F.8A.E9.AA.9A.E6.89.B0.E5.8A.9F.E8.83.BD.E7.8E.B0.E5.B7.B2.E6.94.AF.E6.8C.81.E4.BA.86.7E

Then there is the signature issue. Maybe we should just special case
NS_THREAD and ignore the signature requirement for that namespace?

Since no one else has had any other suggestions since November, I'll look into seeing how hard it will be to implement this.

I think that was bug 53132.

Understandable frustration, but (in)compatibility with LQT is not a "major" bug.

Makes sense but it's not only about signature. Every *new* page creation in NS_THREAD should be considered an add-comment action by interpretDiff() and friends I guess. What to extract as header of the discussion, though?
