Hi guys, this is something I've wanted to implement on the forum for ages - user tagging
.What does it do?
Tagging a user's name in a post will highlight their name in the relevant colour of their user type, link to their forum profile, and best of all - notify them of being tagged in your post! This ought to be an ideal way to be sure of getting someone's attention when replying to something they've said, or simply mentioning them in a topic.How do I do it?
To tag a user, type their name, select it, and click the 'tag' button in the formatting tool panel.Show me an example!
When you click 'Submit', the tagged name should look something like; Qyzbud, Simion32 or Tompa. (Hope you guys don't mind being part of my demo!) Can I adjust how I'm notified?
Sure; to choose how you're notified (PM/email), or disable the notifications, change the 'Tags notification method' setting at the bottom of this User Control Panel page
Go on - give it a try, and let me know how it works! Just try not to annoy your fellow Atlasites too
