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 have to go edit the post and I'll see it works halfway, as in it won't have the "[/MENTION]" on the name yet the first half will be intact. So I have to manually type the closing tag on the post everytime so it will work. I can't understand as to why it does this.
That's not how you use the mod, in between the mention tags is the userid, not the username.

You're supposed to just use @Username or [mention]userid[/mention]

Installed on my forum as well running 4.1.11 patch level 1

Only issue I had was when using @username it would sporadically not mention certain people.

I did however turn on the requirement to use a semi-colon and this seems to have fixed the issue.

As for the [mention] code I tried this using user ID's and it still shows as only the @ symbol with no links to a profile of any kind.

This however is not something we would be using a lot as we don't really go by user id #'s

Is there a way of stopping users being told that they mentioned or quoted someone on their own profile?

Example: If I quote the user "Jack". I go on my profile It will say: MattGarner quoted Jack.

I've installed the mod in my forum, but it's not appearing anywhere.
Maybe one thing you should know is that I've changed my forum path for security reasons.
Appreciated.

The OP is wrong, that's actually a Pro-only feature. Sorry about that

Have you set your usergroup permissions?
You need the Super Admin permission via config.php to see it if you have not granted yourself Can Administer Advanced User Tagging via the administrator interface.

I'm not sure what you mean by changing your forum path for security reasons, but to my knowledge there's no security benefit by not having the forum in the normal /home/<username>/public_html folder or a subfolder within.

Sorry about that. What I meant was that I changed the 'admincp' and 'modcp' folders for security reasons. I don't know if that makes any difference.

I'd already those permissions, but I searched and I didn't have Can Administer Advanced User Tagging permission abilited, now it is... However, I stil can't see it anywhere.

When you have that permission, you'll see it in the AdminCP. However, unless you manually uploaded the file that is meant to go in the AdminCP folder into your new admincp folder, it will error out.

You mean remove the tag from a thread? That cannot be done at this time.
