STEPS TO REPRODUCE 0. make sure you're not logged in to MDN 1. load https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XMLHttpRequest 2. move the mouse over "This Page" in the upper right corner and click "Talk page" ... ACTUAL RESULT I'm redirected to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ It's unclear to me what that page has to do with the Talk page that I wanted to see. Is it asking me to sign in? there's no indication of that whatsoever. If there is no Talk page, it should just say so. EXPECTED RESULT The Talk page for the "XMLHttpRequest" page. I shouldn't have to sign in to *read* it. ======= ... continuing: 3. I sign in 4. clicking Back to get to page I wanted to see at 2. ACTUAL RESULT I see this message: You do not have permissions to view this page - please try logging in. You do not have permissions to view this page - please try logging in. You do not have permissions to view this page - please try logging in. 5. Shift->Reload ACTUAL RESULT The error message above disappears and I can now see that there is no content on this page. *sigh* What I want to see after clicking "Talk page" when not signed in is: The content of the Talk page, or a message stating that there is no content on it yet, and a button "You can contribute". If I click that button I should be asked to signin, and after signing in is complete I should end up at the Talk page that now shows the editor (which should not show up unless signed in).
This sucks, but it's a known bug the way we have MindTouch and django configured. One of the many reasons we're moving off MindTouch as quickly as possible.
