Watchlist for Wikis and Tickets
- 28th Oct 2009
This plug-in adds a watchlist for wikis and tickets. Every logged-in user can watch any wikis and ticket and later unwatch it. The watchlist is provided under
[/projectname]/watchlist which is added to the main navigation bar as soon the user watches something.
To insert a watchlist style table into wikis use the ListOfWikiPagesMacro.
Install the python package as normal and update your Trac database using:
trac-admin /path/to/trac/environment upgrade
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
Download the zipped source from [download:watchlistplugin here].
Browse any wiki or ticket and click Watch in the context navigation bar. To unwatch a wiki or ticket browse to it and click Unwatch in the context navigation bar or click the corresponding Unwatch link in the watchlist.
In order to see the watchlist click on the Watchlist button on the main navigation bar. This button will only be displayed for logged in users.
The watchlist will be displayed under the location
/watchlist. Therefore it can be linked to from a wiki page using
A ticket report can be added to list all watched tickets of the current user. This is not done automatically at the moment. However, the needed SQL code for a manual installation can be taken from the this file.
Using it together with the AnnouncerPlugin
If the AnnouncerPlugin is used to receive change notifications the watchlist allows the user to easily change the notification setting of watched wikis and tickets. If this feature (#4744) is enabled an extra column appears in the watchlist which informs the user about the current setting (On/Off) and allow him/her to change it. Watching and notifications can be independent, i.e. users can have themselves notified about changes of a wiki which is not on their watchlist or vice versa, but can also be linked together as shown below.
[announcer] # Rename announcers context navigation items (empty list removes them): ctxtnav_names = Notify me, Do not notify me [watchlist] notifications = true
To enable notifications by default for all entries in the watchlist (see #6052) also add:
# still in [watchlist] notify_by_default = true
