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.

It won't fix old mentions, you need to edit and re-save those posts.

Hi Fillip

Whenever i tag someone on the forum i still get @{param} on the thread itself, however the person tagged will receive a message in their inbox relating to the tag showing their username and the thread its relating to. I just cannot come right with the @{param} on the thread itself. Your help is much appreciated

In the BBCode manager edit and save the BBCode.

You might have to also edit the post and save as well.

That worked for me. Hope it helps.

No need to do that. You just have to edit and save. But glad you got yours working as well!

My only complaint is if you use it for multiple names, say in a list, the entire post loses all line breaks and paragraph breaks causing you to have to re-edit it and save.

BUT, I understand until the dev begins supporting it for vb5, it's something to live with.

The reason why there's issues with page breaks and such is because it's the only way to work around issues with usernames with special characters and other similar issues.
