#2105 needs_work bug

invitation to groups is a blank message

Description

When we send an invitation to somebody who is viewing the page in a language other than english, and there is no translation for that language yet, he is receiving a blank message.

I'm attaching my outbox, showing that the invitations were only working to the ones watching in english and not in greek. i suppose (without verifying) that it's the same problem for all languages that haven't been translated.

I personally think the issue is not really related to #2096 (were you on alpha?). However there's a big resemblance with #2103.

I reverted the changes for #2096. Please check if the issue is solved by that.

  • Status changed from to_alpha to testing

The invitations are still sent blank, both on www and alpha. if the member selected greek language.

I digged a bit deeper into this and the problem seems to stem from the fact that everyone who has tried to invite someone is a translator.

If no translation rights are assigned everything's fine.

No idea how to fix that at the moment.

While the message shows up blank in the message list (and can't be set to read therefore) the mail send out contains information and allows to join/decline.

  • Priority changed from major to trivial
  • Status changed from testing to needs_work

Easy workaround is to translate, and then invite. i've tested that this workaround is working.

If it's only affecting translators, i put priority to "minor".
I don't know if it's even worth trying to fix this bug.
