Description AlexSm 2007-06-28 16:42:27 UTC
When AJAX Watch script gets successful response from server and displays it on top (the message template is taken from e.g. ) the "$1" inside URL ("watch" / "unwatch") is not substituted for correct page name.

The English Wikipedia's hacky workaround for bug 6261 is what's failing here.  I have no idea what's different about this particular case, but of course, the nature of hacks is to fail randomly.

Workaround: remove the link from the message text.  There's a watch/unwatch link at the top of the page, after all.  :)
Comment 2 AlexSm 2007-06-28 17:20:58 UTC
The "watch" / "unwatch" link there is still useful in case of fallback (not using AJAX).

If {{fullurl:...$1...}} is hacky, is there another "good" way to construct a link using $1 ?

If not, I guess I'll have to go and request the link to be removed.

Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-06-28 17:25:18 UTC
When not using AJAX, there should still be a watch/unwatch link at the top of the page (although it seems it's the wrong way around . . .).

It's not {{fullurl:$1}} that's hacky, it's putting it in a template to work around bug 6261.
Comment 4 AlexSm 2007-06-29 02:12:37 UTC
Well, you were right, we discussed and decided the link was redundant and even confusing (not using ajax watch), so it was removed. Marking as WORKSFORME if you don't mind.
