How to "mention" someone?

<< < (7/8) > >>

ebastler:
Yep, that quote also has a proper, active "mention" now. So it's not depending on the client used, but on some account setting, whether one can mention via the @prefix.

For those accounts where it does not work, it seems that even typing out the [member] tags does not create a working mention, i.e. the mentioned user does not get an indication of the mention in their profile? 

Nominal Animal:
I think in SMF 2.0.x, mentions do not work if the username contains a space or special characters.

Lemme test: @Nominal Animal @"Nominal Animal"
And just to annoy ebastler: @ebastler

Nope, neither turned into a link.

I think Dave installed a mod for supporting mentions using the @username format, then removed or disabled it; and it happens to remain functional for some subset of users.

That said, I don't think I like mentions.  Thanks is as much gamification as I can tolerate, adding mentions goes a bit too far for my taste.

Just trying when I quote this if the mention of username with spaces works.

Nicely put.

Yep, the one with spaces works.  I did get a notification about the mention, too.  Weird.

In my edit window, they look like
    [member=162385]Nominal Animal[/member]
and
    [member=105127]ebastler[/member]

Let's see if [member=650524]metebalci[/member] works for me:

At least in the Preview, it does generate the expected mention with @ in front, as a link to your profile.
