Today I can only set myself as a watcher of a page.
Would be very useful to if I can add/remove another users as a watcher, like we can do in Issues today.

Here's how to do it for wiki pages -- I haven't had the need to do it for forums...

It uses the existing :add_issue_watchers permission (that's hardcoded elsewhere in the code).

To Zee Prime,
Thanks for your modified code.
But it only applied to current wiki page.
Can you add option check box such as "ㅁ Apply to all sub wiki pages?"

#5 Updated by Yuichi HARADA about 1 month ago

You could add and remove watchers with wiki pages (could be done on the sidebar like issues).
I have attached a patch.
