I think this is quite a serious bug:
- Go to a category
- Look at the buttons in the top right, notice I have “normal” notification level
- Click edit
- Don’t change any settings
- Click “save”
- Page refreshes, observe notification level has changed to “Muted”
I am running the absolute latest tests-passed (updated 10 mins ago), and can replicate this on every category on my forum.
Looking at my dev tools, it looks like a POST is being sent to the notifications endpoint immediately after clicking save on the category settings.:
(ignore poll/results items, they’re messagebus/mini-profiler respectively)
I’ve noticed a few support requests on meta that are probably caused by this. For example, this topic.
I am also seeing some random topics change to a muted state, but can’t reproduce this consistently. The root cause might be the same.
The extra POST request makes me think this is a client-side issue rather than server-side. @joffreyjaffeux could this be related to the select-box changes for notification levels?
