Disable email notifications of edits to users' talk pages.
Define function:
public static function onAbortTalkPageEmailNotification( User $targetUser, Title $title ) { ... }
Attach hook: In extension.json:
	"Hooks": {
		"AbortTalkPageEmailNotification": "MediaWiki\\Extension\\MyExtension\\Hooks::onAbortTalkPageEmailNotification"
Called from: File(s): includes/mail/EmailNotification.php
Function(s): canSendUserTalkEmail
Interface: AbortTalkPageEmailNotificationHook.php

For more information about attaching hooks, see Manual:Hooks .
For examples of extensions using this hook, see Category:AbortTalkPageEmailNotification extensions.

This hook allows extensions to disable the regular talk page email notifications.

For example, Extension:Echo does this because it creates a new system of notifications (including to send an email, if the user desires, which would otherwise result in more than one email notification).


Handlers of this hook receive two parameters:

  • User $targetUser The user who's talk page is being edited, to whom the notification will be sent.
    This is equivalent to $targetUser = User::newFromName( $title->getText() );
  • Title $title The Title of the talk page.

Return values[edit]

Handlers of this hook should return:

  • false to disable the built-in email notification; or
  • true to enable it.
