Warning on @mentions and security permissions


(Carson) #1

Hi, today I was demoing Discourse for a colleague. I was @mentioning her in a test Category where she didn’t have access. We were quite confused why she wasn’t seeing them. Then I fixed the permissions and then all was fine. Is there a bug here? Or is it a feature request that there’s notice the @mention won’t be received?

Seems like a regression of some sort. As I can verify it happens on an older version of Discourse. But it doesn’t happen here at Meta.

Could indeed be a regression due to the recent work on the composer.

Added to my list :memo:.

Hmm, no, I’ve seen the warning popup recently (in a PM, though), so I know it is working in PMs at least.

That could be. I noticed it working on Sitepoint in restricted categories, but it doesn’t work here in a restricted category (I tried two of them)
