Provide access to Notifications for anonymous users
Open, LowestPublic


Enabling Echo for anonymous users is something that eventually should get done.

At the very least a schema change will be needed on the echo_notification table.

There are quite a few calls to if ( $user->isAnon() ) { abort; } which need to be updated.

It would be interesting to investigate expiring notifications for dynamic IP addresses.

Apparently WikiHow is working on this (or already has it done?)...

Compare versus (visit both as logged out users).

I uploaded Icfafb4e059baadff8bcda93594835a4ec6b47264 which is a diff of the WikiHow code from current master of Echo. I'll work on cutting down the irrelevant parts.
