Just installed simple mention extension

Post#1 by tim » 1 week 5 days ago


Testing
@trandoductin

starting by typing @ symbol followed by a user's name. after you've typed 2 letters a popup will appear where you can choose a member's name then it'll replace your typing with something like [mention]member's name[/mention]

I think they get a notification if you mention them.
It's a good way to get whoever you mention's attention (just in case they don't read every new posts).

UPDATE: yep, they do get a notification if you mention their name (which is the default behavior) unless they've turned notification off for when their name is mentioned (done in User Control Panel).

@Wallace , Glad you think so!
Just mentioning you for fun and a test.

I think it has its specific use where you want the post to be public (unlike a private message) and also get that member's attention at the same time.

It'll be really handy i think when the forum is busier with more posts that it's less likely to follow all posts.

@gnerd it takes a couple of seconds to pop up after you type a few letters. trying typing @ti then it pops up then you just hit enter to select the name.
Or you can just manually do it yourself by typing the name inside mention tags like this [mention]tim[/mention]
