Advanced @User Tagging Mod: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging.
This version introduces several major new features that users have requested, and some others we were unable to fit in v1.0.

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.

This is a great mod. A suggestion for the Pro version, which would make me buy it today would be emails when someone is mentioned or at least a visitor message (as I have another mod that sends emails when a visitor message is posted)

I reckon consolidated emailing would be amazing. Or an option where you can specifiy if the user is notified by email each time a mention/quote is made or whether the script consolidates all the emails into one daily or weekly email listing all the links etc I think it would be less spammy that way and honestly believe it will increase activity by notifying members after they forget about the forum even though they just started a welcome thread :P

To solve the email problem, is it possible for the mod to check if there's a character before the @ sign and if there is, not convert it to the [mention] bb code?

That way, these would work...

@123 @abc @def

but this wouldn't...

The latest version does not force you to use the ; so you're safe to update

Doing this is something we'd like to do in a future version.

I realize you don't have to use the ; but if you don't there's an issue with email addresses.

For exmaple if I try to type in

[email protected]

It picks up that there's a member on my forum with the username 'waterloo' and then turns it into a mention:

mark[MENTION=314]waterloo[/MENTION].com

Here's a live example: Link

The solution I suggested was to check if there's a previous character, what about the order that the [email] and [mention] gets executed? and then disabling [mention] from executing within [email]?

By the way, this is an awesome mod! I just need to get it working perfectly though

Like I've stated multiple times before, doing the character checking is not a 5 minute job, and since we re-introduced the option of a ; character it's not our top priority at the moment.

We have other modifications that are in dire need of updates, but we will make that change in a future version

Not sure if this is the same for vb4 as I run vb3.8, but I deleted the contents of templates:

dbtech_usertag_memberinfo_block_quote
dbtech_usertag_memberinfo_block_tag

and these tabs no longer appear in the profile:



My question, if I may, is I'd like to delete some of the notification options and keep this purely about mentions. I am unable to find where to look in templates to remove these options (in the red box):



Can someone help me out with a location?
