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.

Hi,

I have weird problem with shoutbox integration.

I chose to disable the integration, but when I make mentions it still shouts it. The weird thing is that the shout notices don't appear until I make a shout myself, then they disappear after a refresh.

I've raised the broken SB integration switch as an issue at DBT forums' Project Tools, I'll fix it for the next version.

It's currently not designed to work with anything other than posts (mentioning) and threads (tagging)

the mention feature doesn't seem to work consistently;

sometimes it doesn't get listed in the Mention tab of a person's profile. then if I post again in the same thread under the same conditions (same mentioned person), it works.

I've been unable to confirm this, could you please experiment some more and try to find a way to reliably reproduce this?

I've read the post about moving the Tag bar to the bottom, but is there a way to remove it altogether? I'd like to use the bbcode method and/or the @xxxx; only. Some of my users won't use this and they'd see that tag bar up there regardless.

I am having the same problem too..when I tag or mention some one ..its not getting listed in the member's profile page..also the weird part is when I, as a admin go to a member's profile I can see them being tagged..but when the member goes to his profile..he cant seem to see the tag or mention.
Also, the user does get a notification..but when he clicks on it.nothing happens...some times it does work and take him to his profile page but he can't see any tags there.

I can't say anything more about the problem - I haven't had time to try to reproduce it yet - but as for the different visibility:
Forum permissions are taken into account when deciding whether to show tags / mentions in an user's profile

Please do have a look at this issue when you get a chance :-)

One more issue is that directly using @ in the post is not working..user needs to go to advanced reply and select the mention icon to get the mention work correctly.

I shall, I'll raise this as an (unconfirmed) bug in Project Tools on the DBTech forums

Are you sure users used @Username; and not some other variation? This is the first I've heard of this issue...

Thought as much ^^
Sadly it's not possible for us at this time to only allow @username, because spaces do exist in usernames... *points to self*

We're always investigating ways to change this, though
