enotif v3.08 for MediaWiki 1.4.1 18.04.2005[edit]

  • adds notification for new pages and more features. See provisionally the RELEASE NOTES on Enotif
  • adds "difference view between current and my last seen revision" (for watched pages)
  • add "You have new messages on your user and/or user_talk page" (i.e. both pages are observed)
  • improved internal program layout

enotif v2.00 published in CVS HEAD on 18.12.2004[edit]

user preferences: suppress realname help, if realname is disabled[edit]

  • If the feature realname is disabled by the Sysop, the help text for the realname entry field (which is not shown then) is also suppressed.
Listed as bugzilla:822 (solved/closed)

enotif v1.351[edit]

  • small maintenance release, because Windows users with Easyphp reported some problems with undefined variables. The current download file has this repaired. A diff file on bugzilla:454 shows the few patches between enotif 1.35 and 1.351 which can be applied manually, too. --Tom Gries [mail] 05:07, 12 Dec 2004 (UTC)

enotif v1.35[edit]

number of watching users is also shown on the watchlist[edit]

  • Version 1.34 showed the number only on page article and recent changes view) Thanks, User:Fantasy for this contribution.

enotif v1.34[edit]

A bug regarding $oldid has been fixed, which prohibited to generate correct (diff-to-last-visited-version) links in the enotif mails.

enotif v1.33[edit]

All Enotif options became options in user preferences[edit]

As mentioned elsewhere, the display of these user options can be suppressed case by case by disabling the corresponding Admin settings in DefaultSettings.php (or LocalSettings.php).

Number of watching users shown in the recent changes view and page article footers[edit]

Also listed as bugzilla:727 .

Recent changes view and page article footers in classic skin and monobook skin show the number of watching users. See the following screenshot and notice the [3] indicating that three users have currently the Main_page in their watchlists.

A new message page MediaWiki:number_of_watching_users is introduced, which is preset with '($1 watching user/s)' in module Language.php during fresh or upgrade installations. '$1' is replaced with the number of watching users and the text is only shown, if the number is > 0 .

Recent Changes view: UseMod style[edit]

(For a discussion, if this is useful or useless, please follow bugzilla:756 . I like it.)

see screenshot: only the most recent change of a page is shown. This feature can be globally disabled by Admin setting $wgRCUseModStyle = false , or if globally enabled, the users see a third recent changes view option in users preferences (standard, enhanced, UseMod style). UseMod style and enhanced view can be used together to suppressed older revisions of a page which were shown otherwise on past days.

Enotif 1.33: Recent changes view in UseMod style and showing not yet visited versions of a watched page

(For a discussion, if this is useful or useless, please follow bugzilla:756 . I like it.)

Page History view shows updated marker only for not-yet seen versions[edit]

see screenshot

Enotif1.33: Page History view, updated marker for not visited revisions (of a watched page)

Notification mails have links to (diff) between current and last visited version[edit]

Page x and Talk_Page x are both watched, when user adds one of these to the watchlist[edit]

enotif v1.21[edit]

"updated" marker marks all versions instead only the non visited version of watched pages[edit]

Enotif v1.21 now suppresses displaying the marker  updated (since my last visit)  in recent changes view for the older i.e. already visited versions of watched pages - i.e. page versions before the enotif was sent do not bear that marker any longer.
