`/my/preferences` should not take you to a 404 page


(Sam Saffron) #1

We link http://sitename/my/preferences in a bunch of places in emails with text similar to: "To change your preferences click: http://sitename/my/preferences.

If a user is not logged in clicking on that link takes you to a 404, this can be very confusing, especially for mailing list migrations.

Instead we should have a special /my/preferences page for anon that explains they are not logged in and provides instructions on how to log in.

Good idea. I’ve added a new page that has a Log In and Forgot Password link:
