Mentions

Post by phil4 » Fri Oct 26, 2018 8:59 am

We've added a new feature to the board.. mentions.

Imagine you're posting and you want to mention certain other users, perhaps to get them involved in the discussion, or to credit them with something. Mentions is where this comes in.

The format to use is

Code: Select all

[mention]persons name[/mention] 
eg.

Code: Select all

[mention]Alex Brandon-Smith[/mention]
If you're wondering where you get the name from (because you can imagine, it needs to be absolutely spot on), if you type an @ and then start typing their name, you should (though when the server is a bit busy, this doesn't work quite so well) get a drop down with names you can click on. I find this works best if done right at the start of the post, and you can then move them as needed.

What's the point? When done, it adds some nice red text showing who you're mentioning, and notifies them of the post.

Should this be a sticky? @phil4

Cheers @Sir Nick,

I think that's a good idea, and consider it done.
