Tagging members
« on: July 01, 2016, 05:25:17 AM »
Is there a way of tagging members in posts? I know on some platforms it is achieved with an @ symbol before the user's name line @Thistleyroses . is there a function like this on Flourish Forum?

Hi Karen,
Not yet. I have been looking for a modification to make this happen but so far have not had luck. I will keep searching.  ;D

For forums I've seen it where you get a notification if you've been quoted. Have you tried searching for it that way, Erica?

Um... I think I'm doing it wrong? Or am I maybe too low level to tag?

LOL! From what I've read it has difficulty with spaces in the username. So if you type the first few letters of the person's name, a drop down menu appears. You can then select it from the list and it should work.  ;)

This does seem like a useful feature, but I rather think I'm going to need an idiot's guide.   :-\

Hi @Erica McPhee - did you get a notification as a result of this 'tag'. (does that mean you are it now?)

@Erica McPhee  My goodness, it didn't work last time, but all of a sudden there's the drop-down list.  Splendid!  ;D

LOL! @SMK and @AndyT

If you look next to "Profile" in the navigation, you will have a number next to it in parenthesis if you have any mentions. Then the "mentions" are listed down under the "Mention" field.   ;D
