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.

I don't see any count in the postbit for 'mentions' in the postbit.

Sorry, where to check this?

I don't like having to type out @username and then having to include a Semicolon...

Also, you didn't cache any of the templates in your modification.

Is it possible to make it similar to Twitter with just @username?

sorry, Twitter style is not possible because ; is the only way we can detect the end of am username.

I'll look into template caching, thanks

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present version 1.1 of [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.

Statistics Page: Display which users are the most active, both at tagging and being tagged. Same with mentions. This is a great way to encourage your members to utilise the feature and increase activity!

Post Previews: See the context of the post you were mentioned in! (Hard limit of 20 characters either way in Lite version)

BBCode Integration: A button for mentioning has been added to the BBCode toolbar – Users no longer need to remember the @; command.

Change look of Mentioned usernames: Allows you to use BBCode to make mentioned usernames stand out. Only underline is available in Lite.

Per Forum Settings: Allows you to turn tagging on/off per forum (disables the tag cloud) and mentioning per forum (Disables mention notifications from that forum)


We hope you enjoy this new version

This is in the 3.8 section of vBulletin.org and the header at the top of this thread says it's for 3.8.4, but the text file in the zip package says "Advanced @User Tagging (Lite) requires at least vBulletin 4.0.2. It may not function correctly in vBulletin 4.0.1 or lower."

Which version of vBulletin is this for? I'm considering getting the pro version, but I run 3.8.4.

OK, ignore the above - it works on 3.8.4.

It's a fantastic system! I've nominated it for MOTM and purchased the Pro version; this is a really good idea. There are a couple of oddities (such as only counting the first mention in a post, so if you mention more than one person it doesn't appear in the Mentions tab on their profile), and the Statistics page seems to confuse mentions and tags (someone is listed as top tag when all he has done is mention, for example), but I'm sure these will get ironed out.

Also, the option to not show the @ in the Admin CP resets to "Yes" every time you save the settings, and if you put the tag box below the thread it simply disappears.

And an option for users to opt-out would be great; I've had a couple complain about being bugged by thread mentions when they're not interested in following them.

Will be looked into for the next maintenance or feature update

Small typo in the file, it's been fixed. The affected file is dbtech/usertag/hooks/misc_start.php, thanks for reporting

Fixed, re-download the Pro version and re-import the XML file

I don't see why we can't add that for the next feature release ^.^


Thanks for your support, it means a lot

Fantastic, thanks!

One minor phrase suggestion (very much not vital) is to clarify the headings on the Statistics page. Where it says "Top Mentions" and "Top Tags" it might be clearer to say "Most Frequent Mentioners" and "Most Frequent Taggers".

Not a major issue at all; it's just a clarification thing so that folks are clear as to what the table is showing them.

I did search in phrases to see if I could change it, but it lokos like it's hard-coded.

Did I mention that I think this is a really good idea? I don't know why nobody thought of it before, but it's one of those "this is how things should work" ideas.

Thanks for the suggestion, will definetely look to fix that for the next version.

Thanks for the compliment on the idea as well - it's rare the designer ever gets any credit in this game for coming up with the ideas that make a difference haha!(Can you tell that's me? =P)

Hi there, I upgraded to the new one. But now in my ACP on the left with the Usertag settings....(Forum Manager and Settings) I get a database error when I click any of those. I also do not have the little icon (speaker) on my editor toolbar.
Sorry for always having problems.

EDIT: When I click on Test this product, I get this "The product called'DragonByte Tech: Advanced User Tagging (Lite)' does not have any Template-Modifications, is not active or all Template-Modifications for this product have been disabled. Please go back and check your input."

Don't know if this has any relevance!?

One problem I see is that there are no permission settings. Someone that is not logged in can go about tagging members anytime they want and I'm afraid that could be annoying to certain members if the right guest come along and started playing around.

Can you try re-uploading all files and re-importing the XML file?
It sounds like the installer script didn't run properly, maybe a re-import will fix it
If not, please post the database error and I'll investigate

That shouldn't have any relevance, no

You're totally right, this will be addressed in the next version, thanks!

Hmm, that's odd. Can you show a screenshot of your forum manager setup? The one with actual forums, not the usertag one.
