Advanced @User Tagging: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging.

The @user Tagging mod is designed to increase activity on your forum by allowing members to mention each other in posts when talking about them.
This is done in a very easy way, very similar to how Twitter mentions people. We use @ ; as the tags, so for instance you could say:
----
This new mod from @Dragonbyte Tech; is pretty cool.
----
The "@DragonByte Tech;" Will become a link to the DragonByte Tech users profile, it will also inform DragonByte Tech they had been mentioned, and link to the relevant thread/post via a new area in the profile section, as well as a new tab in the shoutbox.

It also allows members to "tag" the thread for specific other members by inputting their usernames in the tag box above the posts of the thread.

This is a great way to increase your forum activity with no extra admin input required people will start to mention posts/threads to their friends, which will increase the amount of posting. This is especially useful of forums which have an international contingent (so threads posted in during the night for some of your members don't go overlooked) or forums which have a lot of posts/threads each day again to make sure that a post a person might want to read doesn't get lost in the crowd.

I re-uploaded the mod with a fixed version of that file. I believe everything should work fine for you now

Thanks. No errors in the API, but I notice no auto complete still. Is that a planned feature?

Here's my previous post on the subject of AutoComplete:

It's something we really want to achieve, so during all feature updates to this mod we always delegate some amount of time to researching whether new vBulletin versions or new tricks I've learned may make it possible.

Try editing & re-saving the [MENTION] BBCode in the BBCode Manager.

Nice idea. It would be great if users could type user name in post and automatically link to user profile

Unfortunately that's not going to be possible since there's no way to know if they meant to do that or whether each individual word or group of words is a username

the first Q is regarding your reply in post #20.

most basically this did not work for me in 5.0.3

the basic function of placing an @ before username, failed to create a link to profile...

i was able to create this link more indirectly, however it only linked to the username, whereas in vb5 the proper url displays user# as well like forum/member/1-user......not forum/member/user

=failed for me

I will be re-testing all my vB5 addons over the weekend as we've had multiple reports of incompatibilities with the newest version of vB.
