#1346 closed bug (fixed)

Forum notification subscribe/ unsubscribe link

Reported by: jeanyves Owned by: jeanyves
Priority: minor Milestone: Legacy Resolved
Component: BW Forum Keywords: forum notification


The link from the forum page to subscribe unsubscribe is broken: for example instead of

(there is a missing slash).

I fixed it in forums/topic.php on test can someone check it and say it it looks better ?

Nota: this has nothing to do with groups notifications

Hmm i don't get notifications on test. How should we test it? But as you only added a slash it should work.

For it to work on test we would need a cron runing mailbot on a periodic basis.

But I don't think we should allow test to send mail. The problem is that since test is public (no restriction to connect and to use it), i can imagine that someone could use it for evil purpose with mail. The scenario could be the following:

  • Someone log on test with a known account and teh generic password (easy to guess, it can be found in several volunteer chat)
  • He change the mail address with the one he wants to target
  • He connect with another accound and send a message to this target

The result: could be used to anoyed someone

Thats why I never really try to have mailbot running on test (but if someone has a better proposition, no problem).

So to test the forum notification it has to be moved on Alpha where mailbot can be run manually (and it display a bit about what it does) with an admin account using h t t p : / /

A better solution would be that we install fakemail and then just allow for browsing of those saved mails. Would make things a whole lot easier and means we don't have to compromise alpha because we don't know if something works or not

I look to the fakemail page, it looks like a good solution for the test environment.

Ideally, in addition we will also need a php page to allow each user of test to see which mail where effectively attepted to be delivered

Yup, the emails should be stored in a place where you can browse them afterwards, so you know what was delivered to where and when.

  • follow_up changed from move to alpha to test on production
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

I assume it's fixed. The unsubscribe links from the latest forum notifications did all work for me.
