What are the possible causes of squelch failure in PmWiki's email
Can a change in squelch configuration sometimes have a delay in taking
effect, even though changing the notification email address (in the
same line) took effect immediately?
I have two test installations. One has PmWiki beta-63 with many
recipes installed. The other has PmWiki beta-65 with only a couple of
In both installations I have $EnableNotify=1, and nothing specified
In SiteAdmin.NotifyList, I specify:
notify=randy at mywebsite.com name=MyGroup.MyPage squelch=120
First failure: I notice that when I set squelch=0 in either
installation, I don't get any email notifications.
Second failure: When I set squelch=120, I immediately get squelching
for 2 minutes as expected in the bare bones beta-65 installation, but
in my other installation emails come right away - i.e. squelch fails.
Third failure: When I omit squelch entirely, to rely on PmWiki's
default squelch value of 3 hours, again the beta-63 installation
continues to send emails right away.
It doesn't help if I use trail=, or specify a different default
$NotifySquelch in config.php.
Any thoughts about what might cause squelch failure?
