Invite link should not auto-accept invitation if user is already logged in


(Dave McClure) #1

I’ve been using the Copy Invite Link features for invites primarily because I find it a lot more natural to personally craft a message to people who I am inviting to a topic (especially people who are not yet users).

Recently, I was typing up an email and when I added the link, I was kindly prompted by Gmail to test the URL:

The dialog in Discourse states that the “Invite link is only valid for this email address”:

Unfortunately, after clicking it, even though I was already logged in as myself, it appeared to immediately accept the invitation.

If a user is already logged in who is not the one who created the invite it could instead display a warning dialog saying something to the effect of “oops, looks like you are attempting to accept an invitation for another user. If you are not [logged in user], please log out and try again?”
