  • "mention-box" turns red after editing comment although a reload fixes this.
  • Why do user mentions incorrectly change color after editing comments?
  • So the other day I commented on a thread, mentioning another user:
  • <br><br>
  • All the details of all the screenshots in this post have been replaced with dummy text to simplify/generalize the question.

  • As you can see, everything works as expected. The "mention-name-box" is blue too.
  • But then I edited my comment to add something.
