[FIXED] Missing article ID in comment notification email
stan commented on 27 June 2017 at 12:23 pm UTC

Hi

I just got an email notification for a comment on an article, and it’s missing the "aid" variable in the text part of the email (the link is correct in the HTML part).

Here’s the link that I got:
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/index.php?module=articles_full&aid=&comment_id=96364&clear_note=35897

The previous notification mail I got at 10:20 UTC today was ok:
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/index.php?module=articles_full&aid=9902&comment_id=96363&clear_note=35897

To be clear it’s this comment that missed the aid:
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/feral-interactive-are-teasing-a-new-linux-port-bring-on-the-speculation.9902/comment_id=96364

That poster has only 3 comments so maybe it went through manual verification? I seem to remember some issue related to that in the past.

Got the same issue again with a new poster:
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/feral-interactive-are-teasing-a-new-linux-port-bring-on-the-speculation.9902/comment_id=96375

Additionally, something I hadn’t noticed is that the name too is wrong in the raw text part of the email:

QuoteHello stan, BTRE replied to an article on https://www.gamingonlinux.com/index.php?module=articles_full&aid=&comment_id=96375&clear_note=35897
Instead of:
Quotebackplate101 has replied to an article you follow on titled "Feral Interactive are teasing a new Linux port, bring on the speculation".
in the HTML part.

Apologies, seems the plaintext link had an incorrect var name for the article id, same issue with the username.

Both should be fixed going forward now.

Thanks for the reports.
