Description Edward Z. Yang 2006-01-26 22:15:32 UTC
Log into a Wikimedia project and click My watchlist. Note how it is bold. Now
click on My contributions.

Expected result: My contributions is bold
Actual result: My contributions is not bold

Reproducible: Always

which lead me to file the bug. It's really trivial though.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-01-27 00:17:54 UTC
This seems to be explicitly disabled at the moment in SkinTemplate.php:

# FIXME #  'active' => ( $href == $pageurl . '/' . $this->username )

If just uncommented it would fail on usernames with spaces, special chars, etc,
and also on subsequent views with extra parameters because of how the target
gets passed differently.
Comment 2 Edward Z. Yang 2006-01-27 00:29:46 UTC
Use the Title object. Seems trivial to fix... something like

$contributions_title =& Title::makeTitle(NS_SPECIAL, 'Contributions/' .
$contributions_url = $user->escapeLocalURL();
Comment 3 Edward Z. Yang 2006-01-27 00:31:51 UTC
Above fix wouldn't fix the problem on "subsequent views with extra parameters"
though. It's a half-step towards the solution. Somehow, the skin would have to
know that: one, the current page was Special:Contributions and two, the current
page's target was the current username.

Maybe a "half-step towards the solution" is better then actual behaviour.
[[Special:Recentchangeslinked/Main_Page]] does not have this problem. It shoes
2468 watched items both in wiki syntax and with special parameters.

Marking as 'depends on':
Bug 2468: The code that generates the namespace form for Special:Contributions,
Special:Allpages and Special:Recentchanges should be merged

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

please read
It shoes *bold* watched items both in wiki syntax and with special parameters.

Sorry wrong "copy and paste".

Remove bogus dependency. Please stop spreading this crap all over the place.
Comment 7 Jason Quinn 2006-10-14 04:19:27 UTC
I first noticed this bug. It hadn't been commented on in a while. It seems like
it should be simple to fix. I also noticed that MediaWiki itself doesn't do the
whole bold highlighting thing. Shouldn't it?
