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 appears as if you have uploaded the files incorrectly. Please drag and drop the contents of the upload folder (use Ctrl+A to select all files) to your public_html folder.

Hello, first of all this looks awesome and can't wait to try it XD
2nd sorry if this is a noob question :P

when you say "Upload all files from the "upload" folder to your forums directory." in the readme.txt
do you mean the individual folders like: admincp, dbtech,includes or the CONTENT of them? im confused because by uploading the folders as they are named, doesnt that replace the folder already in public_html?

It will not replace the folders it just adds files to those folders.

We do not supply translations with our products, as we cannot officially support them. However, we have a Translations forum here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/f91/
That forum is our preferred method of showcasing translations as we link to this forum in every release thread, and we have prefix filters that let people see all mods for their chosen languages

This is a wonderful mod but unfortunately is not compatible with vBSEO.

Since so many people use vBSEO and do rewrite their member profile pages, is there any chance there will be a workaround provided for vBSEO users?

Without vBSEO activated, the link to a notification is in this format:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and with vBSEO on, it should be like this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

for it to work properly but instead the URL comes out like this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Is there something we can change in notifications_list.php so that we are able to keep our vBSEO setup AND use this plugin?

It looks like ?tab=quotes needs to be inserted in the URL but not sure where.

Thank you very much.

Modify Code to Work with vBSEO URL Rewrites

Update: Got it working with my vBSEO setup.

For my member profiles I am using the following URL rewrite format:

members/[user_name]-[user_id].html

Therefore the notifications links that this plugin generates need to be changed.

In upload/dbtech/usertag/hooks/notifications_list.php, make the following changes:

On line 14, change:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

On line 23, change:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

On line 32, change:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This is for my specific vBSEO URL rewrite format. If you're using a different format, you'll have to modify the code to be compatible.

Hope this helps someone else out.

I have been using this mod on my forum for a long time. It works great, however of the past couple weeks/months I have noticed a steady increase in the amount of time it takes to load a users profile, or when loading a users own profile through notifications.

I have traced the issue down to being this mod. If I disable the mod, profile speeds go back to normal.

I should point out that the usertag tables in the database are huge. The mod is very popular on my site and has been used extensively. It is not uncommon to have a profile page that shows over 1000 pages of mentions.

Is there any way I can speed profile/notification page loads besides clearing out old mentions?

Could you please re-post this issue over @ our forums here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/forumdisplay.php?f=51 ?

That would be an issue that requires significant time to investigate and fix - time I simply do not have at this moment

vBulletin.org posts will get buried, whereas on our forums we will always have a directory of issue reports that we can look back on. Thanks

Had an issue with this mod, that I was able to fix on my site, but wanted to bring to your attention. The issue also affected Advanced Post Thanks. I am running the latest version of both, and vb 4.2.0.

The problem is in the profile tabs. Whenever clicking on any of the pages to view previous mentions/quotes/thanks an error would be received by the browser "Too Many Redirects"

I narrowed the issue down to being the "perpage=20" part of the link. If that part is removed, the error doesn't happen.

I fixed it by editing the php files to remove all instances of "&perpage=$perpage" from the class_profileblock.php file.

Hi DBTech, I installed the plugin as a trial, but found when a tagged post had been soft-deleted, the user could still see the mention/tag in their "notifications" tab, and also on their profile. When the thread was moved to a hidden forum, the mention/tag disappeared from their view (from their profile, and from their notifications drop-down). Is there a way to make if the post is soft-deleted, it too hides the mention/tag?

(System is vBulletin 4.1.x)

EDIT: Submitted a ticket on your forum DBTech.

Well, I want to disable the statistics next to username, it does not display properly.

There have any options or trick to do that?

Thanks.

Found answer on forum anyway.

For the sake of posterity: It's the "Manual Postbit Deployment" setting - turning it off without performing manual edits will effectively disable the stats
