This was brought to my attention over on pt:, but I noticed it doesn't work on en: either-- Because the watch tab doesn't change, one cannot tell at a glance whether the present page is on their watchlist or not.
When it happens
All the time.
What should happen
Once watched, the tab should change to read "unwatch".
How to fix it
I'm sure there is a WikiMedia page that needs to be fiddled with. Just not sure where.
- I bugged Evan about this a couple times a ways back, and he was pretty resistant.... apparently there's a lot of other stuff built up around it that makes it a pain somehow? Don't know why.... I think it's the MW default now, but.... I would love it too! – cacahuate talk 16:30, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
- I glanced over username.js, ajaxwatch.js and a XHTML souce code of a page in my watchlist. And then, I noticed a curious thing that the XHTML souce code has no li element with id="ca-unwatch". Ajaxwatch.js needs this id to show Unwatch tab. I guess that some program code in WT's MediaWiki are clipped not to output li element with id="ca-watch" nor id="ca-unwatch". -- Tatata 23:11, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
